Culture Wars and the Supreme Court

By: Tyler Phillips

Cases

Case #1

Roe V. Wade

The issue was Abortion regarding the fact that it's legal if it does not harm the

women's health. The rights involved was the 14th amendment. The impact was that Texas law making it a crime to assist a woman to get an abortion violated her due process rights.


Case #2

Griswold V. Connecticut

The issue was whether or not people should have martial privacy with the

drugs they are prescribed to. The rights involved was the fifth amendment. The impact it had was a Connecticut law criminalizing the use of drugs violated the right to marital privacy.


Case#3

United States V. Windsor

The issue was whether or not homosexuals should have the same marriage

rights as heterosexual people. The rights involved was the fifth amendment. The impact this had was some states have let same sex couples marry because of the

equal rights we have in the US.


Case #4

Gonzalez V. Carhart

The issue was whether or not partial abortion should be outlawed or not. The rights involved was the 14th amendment. The impact this had was the people arguing the case had no proper evidence that it affected the women or harmed her by any means.

Vacancies

Lloyd N. Cutler

He is most likely going to quit when Obama leaves. He is a democrat so when he leaves the democratic vote will go down next election.


Ruth Bader Ginsburg

She will probably retire after Obama leaves. Since she is a democrat the democratic vote will go down next election.

Conclusion

Cultural wars in the United States is a huge deal. There is

abortion, racism, birth control, and a lot more. All these are cases

that all go with our culture and are the wars we are fighting today.

We might not recognize these wars but we have to fight them
