Join us for a roundtable discussion on the occasion of the 50th Anniversary of Griswold v. CT, the landmark 1965 U.S. Supreme Court decision that overturned a state law prohibiting the use of birth control on the grounds that it violated marital privacy. The decision informed Roe v. Wade, the 1973 case that legalized abortion. The panelists will use the Griswold decision as a vehicle for exploring the recent history and current status of reproductive rights in the United States.
