Cultural war cases

Cole Nichols


Cultural wars in the supreme courts:

Roe v wade -

The issue:

Abortion regarding the fact that it's legal if it does not harm the women's health.

The rights involved: 14th amendment

Impact: Texas law making it a crime to assist a woman to get an abortion violated her due process rights.

Gonzalez v carhart -

The issue:

whether or not partial abortion should be outlawed or not.

The rights involved: 14th amendment

Impact: the people arguing the case had no proper evidence that it affected the women or harmed her by any means.

Griswold v. Connecticut -

The issue: whether or not people should have martial privacy with the drugs they are prescribed to.

The rights involved- the fifth amendment

Impact - A Connecticut law criminalizing the use of drugs violated the right to marital privacy. Connecticut Supreme Court reversed.

United States v. Windsor -

The issue: whether or not homosexuals should have the same marriage rights as heterosexual people.

The rights involved: 5th amendment

Impact: some states have let same sex couples marry because of the equal rights we have in the US.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg - most likely to retire after Obama leaves. She is highly

democratic so if she leaves the democratic vote for the next election will go down.

Cultural wars in the United States is a huge deal among us. 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 there are a lot of them.
