Using a generalized Fermi hypernetted chain method on a Jastrow trial ground-state wave function, which includes a dependence on the z component of the nuclear spin, it is shown that spin correlations make a significant contribution to the ground-state energy of liquid 3He, accounting for much of the energy necessary to stabilize unpolarized liquid 3He relative to completely polarized 3He.
