40th Anniversary of Protected Birth Control
I see where Planned Parenthood is celebrating the 40th anniversary of Protected Birth Control. I had no idea that back in 1965 there were still states that outlawed birth control for married couples. That is unbelievable. I fear that is what the American Taliban would like us to get back to with the pharmacists who refuse to fill birth control or give the morning after pill to rape victims.
On June 7, 1965, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down a Connecticut law that made the use of birth control by married couples illegal with its ruling in Griswold v. Connecticut. PPFA and pro-choice supporters from the Washington, DC, area are celebrating the anniversary of constitutional protection for using birth control with an event on Massachusetts Avenue outside of DC's Union Station. The event will feature a giant birth control pill and pill pack, celebrating the "birthday of birth control."
