The ACLU-CT believes that all people deserve equal access to reproductive health services. Every person should be able to choose whether or not to have children. The ACLU-CT unwaveringly supports the right to safe, affordable access to the full range of contraceptive options and abortion. Connecticut must act quickly to dismantle barriers to abortion and ensure that abortion is accessible, affordable, and available to all. Drug use is fundamentally an issue of public health, something the criminal legal system is neither appropriate for nor equipped to handle. The ACLU-CT opposes criminal prohibition of drugs. Not only is prohibition a proven failure as a drug control strategy, but it subjects otherwise law-abiding citizens to arrest, prosecution, and incarceration for what they do in private.
