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.

With an Equal Rights Amendment —how else could it be done?

Reproductive Rights are basic, yet they have been used as a means of controlling not just women, but whole populations by powerful men for a very long time. Having or not having a child is a private matter.
