|Eisenstadt v. Baird|
|Court||Supreme Court of the United States|
|Date decided||March 22, 1972|
Can Massachusetts criminalize distribution of contraceptives to unmarried couples?
William Brennan held, "If the right of privacy means anything, it is the right of the individual, married or single, to be free from unwarranted governmental intrusion into matters so fundamentally affecting a person as the decision whether to bear or beget a child."
- Unlike Griswold v. Connecticut, Eisenstadt v. Baird deals with the right of unmarried heteronormative couples to possess contraceptives.
