This chapter examines the most influential [United States] Supreme Court decisions of the latter part of the twentieth century in “Griswold v. Connecticut (1965).” It notes that under attack on that occasion was a Connecticut law forbidding the use of contraceptive devices to prevent pregnancies. It provides that in Griswold, the Supreme Court, by a vote of 7-2, held the law invalid after “operators of a birth control clinic had been prosecuted for aiding married couples to violate the law, furnishing them advice on contraceptive devices.”

Keywords:   Supreme Court decisions, Griswold v. Connecticut (1965), Connecticut, contraceptive devices, pregnancies, birth control, married couples
