On this day 48 years ago, the Supreme Court ruled in Griswold v. Connecticut that (married) couples have a right to use contraception. Although a vocal minority–including a recent presidential candidate–thinks this ruling never should have happened, the vast majority of us seem to like it quite a bit. As conservative attacks against birth control access continue–over the past three years, more than 60 lawsuits have been filed against the contraceptive coverage benefit in Obamacare–we need to remain ready to fight for this right that our generation has always been able to take for granted.
Happy anniversary to your right to birth control!
