Accordingly, single persons "are not themselves subject to prosecution and, to that extent, are denied a forum in which to assert their own rights.

Baird thereafter filed a petition for habeas corpus relief in federal district court. The district court denied his petition, but the court of appeals reversed and directed the district court to grant the writ. Thomas Eisenstadt, the sheriff of the county in which Baird was convicted, appealed the decision of the court of appeals to the Supreme Court.

Under the law in effect at the time of defendant's conviction, it was a felony for anyone to give away "any drug, medicine, instrument or article whatever for the prevention of conception. The law, however, was subject to certain exceptions. Moreover, by court state decision, married or single persons could obtain contraceptives from anyone for the purpose of preventing the spread of disease. Justice Brennan wrote the opinion for a majority of the justices participating in the case four out of seven.

Justice Brennan first addressed defendant's standing. Although the circumstances under which a party is permitted to assert the rights of third persons is limited, the Court held that defendant had standing to assert the rights of single persons to obtain contraceptives to avoid pregnancy. The law did not prohibit the use of contraceptives by single persons, only their distribution to singles. Accordingly, single persons "are not themselves subject to prosecution and, to that extent, are denied a forum in which to assert their own rights.

To protect their rights, it was appropriate to recognize defendant's third party standing. Having disposed of the standing issue, Justice Brennan turned to the merits of the case, to wit, whether there was a reasonable basis to distinguish between married and single persons in the availability of contraceptives.

Justice Brennan said that it would be "plainly unreasonable to assume that Massachusetts has prescribed pregnancy and the birth of an unwanted child as punishment for fornication, which is a misdemeanor [under state law]. That justification was undermined by several considerations. First, contraceptives were widely available-to both married and single persons-to prevent the spread of disease.

Second, contraceptives could be acquired by married persons without regard to their intended use, including to prevent pregnancy in sexual relations with unmarried persons. Thus, "[e]ven on the assumption that the fear of pregnancy operates as a deterrent to fornication, the Massachusetts statute is so riddled with exceptions that deterrence of premarital sex cannot reasonably be regarded as its aim.

The prohibition on the distribution of contraceptives to unmarried persons had a "dubious relation to the State's criminal prohibition on fornication. At the time Eisenstadt was decided, fornication was a misdemeanor punishable by a small fine or up to three months in jail, while violation of the prohibition of distribution of contraceptives to unmarried persons was a felony, punishable by up to five years in the state prison.

The Court commented, "we. Massachusetts has chosen to expose the aider and abetter who simply gives away a contraceptive to 20 times the ninety-day sentence of the offender himself. The Court also rejected the argument that the ban on the distribution of contraceptives to unmarried persons embodied was motivated by any concern for health regulating the distribution of potentially harmful articles.

Eisenstadt , U. If the promotion of public health were the purpose of the law, the law was both discriminatory and overbroad. It was discriminatory because if there was a need to have a physician prescribe and a pharmacist dispense contraceptives for married persons, there was an equally great need for them to prescribe and dispense contraceptives for unmarried persons.

A physician who was competent and qualified to prescribe contraceptives for married couples was equally competent and qualified to prescribe them for unmarried persons. The law was overbroad with respect to an alleged interest in promoting public health because not all contraceptives pose dangers to their users and, in any event, the safety of contraceptive drugs and devices is regulated by the federal government. In light of the Court's conclusion that the law could not be justified either as a means of preventing fornication or as a public health measure, the question arose as to whether it could be upheld as simply a prohibition of contraception.

Justice Brennan declined to address this "important question" because, "whatever the rights of the individual to access to contraceptives may be, the rights must be the same for the unmarried and the married alike. If, under Griswold v. Connecticut , U.
