From Booklist:

Gr. 6^-10. In 1961 Estelle Griswold, the executive director of the Planned Parenthood League in Connecticut, politely showed police officers all the information they needed to arrest her for violating a state law against distributing contraceptives. The case would prove to be an important one, often referred to today, for it set the precedent that privacy, though not mentioned specifically in the Constitution, was an "unenumerated right." Wawrose, who is a lawyer, skillfully dissects the legal language and theory to explain the history that took place before, during, and after Griswold. Enhanced by a nicely descriptive bibliography, this will be useful to adults as well as older children. Notes are appended, and black-and-white photographs appear throughout. Susan Dove Lempke
