In Griswold v. Connecticut, the Supreme Court was considered an activist court because it asserted that laws banning contraception were legitimate state rights. it overturned the will of a democratically elected legislature acting in the interests of the people and thus, making law. it maintained that the rights of married people were sacred. it asserted nonexistent rights. If the Supreme Court were to rule that gay marriage is a fundamental right, under the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment, that would mean each state would still be able to decide for itself whether it recognizes gay marriage or not. no state may distinguish between gay marriage and heterosexual marriage because that would effectively create invidious distinctions. that Congress must create a public assistance program for gay couples. that only married people enjoy protection under the Equal Protection Clause. Affirmative action is about making financial amends for slavery. achieving a color blind society in America. moving the Civil Rights Movement into its next phase by promoting equal opportunity. enrolling more minorities than whites in universities The trajectory of cases from Roe v. Wade to Parenthood v. Casey appear to suggest that a woman’s right to choose cannot be hindered in any way by states. is completely subject to a state’s legislation. can be restricted so long as those restrictions do not create an undue burden. may be imposed upon by undue burdens from the state. I have looked online but I cannot find the answers can someone please help thanks
