Griswold v. Connecticut (1965) came up today during the Senate confirmation hearing for Judge Barrett.
I was completely dumbfounded to learn birth control was illegal in some states. I’m very familiar with Roe v Wade. I had never heard of Griswold before today.
Notice that the date is over 80 years before the pill. They must have been considering instruments like condoms and maybe your hand? (If you pulled out and manually finished). That also must have included the person who sold the condom.
It’s incredible just how backwards and narrow minded some state legislatures were.
Did you know contraceptives were illegal in some states prior to Griswold in 1965?
