Marriage Equality depends on SCOTUS ruling in Griswold v. Connecticut, which NYPD are trying to undermine

It is ironic that SCOTUS journalist Linda Greenhouse wrote her column about how marriage equality will, in part, depend on Griswold v. Connecticut, which, almost 50 years later, is being gutted by NYPD. New York City police profile and arrest LGBT New Yorkers if they carry condoms. And while the ruling in Griswold made it legal for people to use prophylactics, here in New York City you have cops arresting people for carrying condoms, because the police use condoms as evidence of criminality -- instead of respecting people's right to privacy under due process. How will marriage equality come about if NYPD are trying to undermine the integrity of the Griswold ruling ?

If marriage equality will, in part, depend on the ruling in Griswold, what are LGBT elected politicians doing to put a stop to the NYPD from gutting Griswold ?
