On this day in 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down state laws that had
been restricting abortions during the first six months of pregnancy. The case
(Roe vs. Wade) legalized abortion. The Court ruled, in a 7-2 decision, that

a woman’s right to choose an abortion was protected by the privacy rights guaranteed by the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

DRAFT DODGERS PARDONED ON THIS DAY IN 1977

Image result for draft dodgers pardoned 1977  
President Jimmy Carter, in his first day in office, fulfilled a campaign
promise by announcing the pardoning of draft dodgers.

 

     


On January 21, 1977, U.S. President
Jimmy Carter granted an unconditional
pardon to hundreds of thousands of men who evaded the draft during the
Vietnam War by fleeing the country or by failing to register. The executive
order left many people furious, while others saw it as a bold show of
compassion.

In total, some 100,000 young Americans went abroad in the late 1960s and
early 70s to avoid serving in the war. Ninety percent went to Canada, where
after some initial controversy they were eventually welcomed as immigrants.

Still others hid inside the United States. In addition to those who avoided
the draft, a relatively small number–about 1,000–of deserters from the U.S.
armed forces also headed to Canada. While the Canadian government
technically reserved the right to prosecute deserters, in practice they left
them alone, even instructing border guards not to ask too many questions.

SUPER CANDY BAR FOR THE SUPER BOWL

Image result for world's largest snickers bar

To honor the iconic candy brand’s 90th anniversary, the brains behind
Snickers decided, hey, what better way to celebrate that than with a
4,700-pound candy bar? Someone in the room then likely said, “There
is no better way!” and thus the “largest Snickers bar ever created” was
born.

The bar reportedly took more than 600 people to construct and used
caramel, peanuts, nougat and 3,500 pounds of chocolate to create the
“equivalent to more than 41,000 single-size Snickers bars.”

the Snickers commercial that will be played during the
Super Bowl on Feb. 2.
