Privacy – First emerges as a right in Griswold V Connecticut (1965) – that case struck down a state law  that made it illegal to possess contraceptives because it violated marital privacy             But the Constitution makes no explicit mention of this right             The justices argue that it is found in the first amendment’s right to free  association, third amendment’s right not to have soldiers quartered in your  home, 4 th  amendment protection against unwarranted searches, fifth  amendment right to self incrimination, and the 9 th  amendment which states  “The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed  to deny or disparage others retained by the people.”      The justices will later strike to down the prohibition against birth control for single people in  Eisenstadt v Baird (1972)       The right to privacy is then expanded in Roe v Wade (1973) where it includes the right to get an  abortion but there may be a compelling state interest to intervene as the pregnancy progresses.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
