Anti-choice nutters to protest legal contraception
Contraception has been legal for 50 years, which provides enough reason for those against it to protest.
The Pro-Life Wisconsin group sent out an email Tuesday to members promoting its annual “prayer vigils at local birth control centers” lamenting the June 7, 1965, ruling in theGriswold v. Connecticut case, reported Right Wing Watch.
The ruling struck down laws prohibiting married women from accessing birth control — which some Catholics and other religious conservatives believe cause abortions.
“The landmark Griswold decision paved the way for abortion on demand in America by legalizing contraception and defining the so-called ‘right to privacy’ upon which the 1973 Roe v. Wadedecision was based,” the group said in its email.
Pro-Life Wisconsin, which brags that its opposition to “all forms of birth control” is more hardline than the state’s National Right to Life Committee, is pushing for a fetal “personhood” amendment to the Wisconsin constitution.
