January 22, 1973: The Supreme Court makes abortion legal through all stages of pregnancy for any reason.
On the same day, the Supreme Court decision in Roe v Wade basically said that they could not determine when a preborn became a human being or a person - ignoring evidence of biological and sociological sciences and even our English language. And so they stripped the preborn's right to life.

The Supreme Court decision in Doe v Bolton basically legalized abortion through all stages of pregnancy, including grueling partial birth abortion - all on the basis of 'mother's health' - interpreted freely to include the inconvenience of the mother!

In 1978, Alabama Citizens for Life (ACL) began lobbying for Pro-Life Legislation.
