"Uncle Joe" continued
Yes, pidge, the constitutionality of prohibiting the sale or distribution of contraceptives was settled in Griswold v. Connecticut in 1965. It was unconstitutional as it was seen as a violation of the right of privacy The use of contraceptives is even more a violation, and is obviously unconstitutional. But, it appears there are a few posters here who are unaware of this and, thus, respond by "not caring" so they don't explicitly demonstrate their ignorance of one aspect of the Constitution.
I would like fancifowl's and other conservatives' assessment of whether in their view, a law prohibiting the use of contraception would be a violation of the Constitution, irrespective of any particular case law. This goes to the issue fancifowl raised regarding re-reading of the text of the Constitution to imbue it with new meaning.
