Griswold v. Connecticut (1965)
A physician had been arrested for giving information about contraception to a married couple because Connecticut law prohibited the use of "any drug, medicinal article, or instrument for the purpose of preventing conception." The Court overturned the Connecticut law stating that it infringed upon people's right to privacy. This decision raised more questions concerning the unenumerated rights mentioned in the Ninth Amendment.
