re: #26 ggt
I have never liked “Griswold v. Connecticut”. I don’t really think the Supreme Court should have gotten involved. Instead, the court claimed a right to privacy (on dubious reasoning), and Griswold became the foundation for a whole raft of SCOTUS interventions. It would have been better if the public had been required to pressure the state legislature in Connecticut in order to repeal the law.
But make no mistake, the Comstock law was a bad law. My beef is with how it was done away with, not that it was done away with.
