Abstract:     
This article attempts to distinguish the claims at issue in both Griswold v. Connecticut and Roe v. Wade to determine if these two claims are in fact related. The paper explains that the two claims of right are vastly different and that the Court’s determination of a time-frame for when an abortion may be performed directly contradicts the Court’s earlier stance that it was not within the power of the judiciary to insert its own view on the significance of a life.
