Reproductive Rights: Eisenstadt v. Baird

February 5, 2016

In Eisenstadt v. Baird, the question presented to the Court was a natural continuation of the issue in Griswold. While the previous case determined that states could not prevent married couples from having access to contraception, this one asked whether states could prevent unmarried individuals from accessing contraception. Some could argue this case provided the bridge to our next episode, Roe v. Wade.

This arc leads up to the beginning of March 2016, when the Supreme Court hears Whole Woman's Health v. Hellerstadt, about a current Texas abortion law.
