Research Paper 1: Final Instructions
You will write a 4–5-page research paper covering the most controversial of all the rights in the Bill of Rights—the right to privacy- which becomes the foundation for the right to an abortion. The purpose of this assignment is to help you analyze this right and its legacy as well as to think through the issues surrounding this right in the context of our legal, constitutional, and religious history.
The right to privacy was first created by the Supreme Court in its 1965 Griswold v. Connecticut ruling. Eight years later, in its 1973 decision Roe v. Wade, the Court determined that the right to privacy was broad enough to include the right to an abortion. Consequently, in this paper, you’ll explore the specific, constitutional underpinnings of the abortion debate.
Access Griswold v. Connecticut from any reputable website (two excellent websites are http://www.oyez.org/ and https://www.law.cornell.edu/). Analyze this case from both a loose constructionist and a strict constructionist perspective. Apply the principles and knowledge that you have gained in this course regarding America’s religious and legal history. In light of our Constitutional heritage and principles that you have learned in this course, which side is more consistent with our Constitutional heritage? Since Roe v. Wade is based upon Griswold, is the Roe decision grounded upon a strong, constitutional basis? Explain and discuss. Follow current APA formatting.
