The Hero of The Right to Birth Control

The Hero of The Right to Birth Control

How did you celebrate Right to Privacy Day?

March 22, 2012 was the 40th anniversary of Eisenstadt v. Baird, Bill Baird’s 1972 U.S. Supreme Court case that legalized birth control for all Americans.  Eisenstadt v. Baird is a landmark case that became the bedrock of several privacy cases including Roe v. Wade (legalized abortion) and Lawrence v. Texas (gay rights victory).

Please click the above link, read about the man, Bill Baird, and donate, whatever you can.

  1. Saw this comment of yours on another blog;

    “This just in, The New York Times explains how the Western caste system differs from the Hindu caste system…(hint, not in the least): ”

    I wouldn’t expect it to differ because India’s caste system was imposed upon them by Western Imperialists. Before that India did not have a caste system but a varna and ashram system (totally different from caste).

    Om Namah Shivaya!
