Protest The Pill Day

From The Pill
June 7 marks the 43rd anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court decision Griswold v. Connecticut. This was the first of many decisions that led to the culture of death we live in today. On that day in 1965, when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled on the Griswold v. Connecticut case, it set a legal precedent for claiming that the Constitution grants women the right to privacy in matters of sexual practice. This meant that Connecticut and the rest of the United States could not stop a married woman from obtaining birth control pills. However, as Judge Andrew Napolitano has pointed out, the constitutional right to privacy has nothing to do with birth control.

Join young people across the country on Protest the Pill Day '08: The Pill Kills Babies on June 7 and witness outside of clinics that distribute this killing poison.
Dan Savage comments:
Yes, the country went to shit when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that women had a right to privacy “in matters of sexual practice.” Every sensible person knows, of course, that sexually-active women cede all their rights to privacy, sexual or otherwise. Those aren’t her reproductive organs; that’s a SRO hotel for a fetus. La la la. The religious right is seeking to redefine birth control as abortion, and they want to end your right to access both or either. Time to fight back.
