Abstract

In the political arena, control of sexual behavior is used to prevent individuals having freedom from reproductive enslavement. The right to birth control was first legally protected in 1965 in the case Griswold v. Connecticut. However, both women and men during 1972-1973 have stated many times that it is ethical to allow individuals sexual freedom. The rulings of Eisenstadt v. Baird and Roe v. Wade demonstrate that government would maintain a separation from the private lives of all citizens and protect the choice to utilize contraception, even emergency contraception like abortion. The Supreme Court Justices recognized that the sexual ethics deemed consensual sex between adults as acceptable. many forms of birth control were available at this time, and the legal allowance to utilize them also aided the sexual revolution.
