What is Griswold v. Connecticut?

The US Supreme Court’s 1965 decision invalidated an 1897 Connecticut law that prohibited counseling on and use of contraception. Estelle Griswold, the executive director of the Planned Parenthood League of Connecticut, along with the league’s medical director, Dr. C. Lee Buxton, were convicted of violating the statute by providing contraceptive information to married couples. In overturning their conviction, the Court recognized an individual’s right to privacy in family planning matters, setting the stage for other significant reproductive rights decisions of the past half-century.
