7. if it's not in the constitution, the right doesn't exist



One of the reasons privacy will be such a big deal this century.

It's not just about abortion, it's about the next 20 years. In the '20s and '30s it was the role of government. '50s and '60s it was civil rights. The next two decades are going to be privacy. I'm talking about the Internet. I'm talking about cell phones. I'm talking about health records and who's gay and who's not. And moreover, in a country born on the will to be free, what could be more fundamental than this? -Sam, The West Wing, The Short List (1999)


Griswold v. Connecticut:

Two Justices, Hugo Black and Potter Stewart, filed dissents. Justice Black argued that the right to privacy is to be found nowhere in the Constitution. Furthermore, he criticized the interpretations of the Ninth and Fourteenth Amendments to which his fellow Justices adhered. Justice Stewart famously called the Connecticut statute "an uncommonly silly law", but argued that it was nevertheless constitutional.

Since Griswold, the Supreme Court has cited the right to privacy in several rulings, most notably in Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113 (1973), where the Court ruled that a woman's choice to have an abortion was protected as a private decision between her and her doctor. For the most part, the Court has made these later rulings on the basis of Justice Harlan's substantive due process rationale. The Griswold line of cases remains controversial, and has drawn accusations of "judicial activism" by many conservatives.

20. I think that if our predominantly Catholic Supreme Court

changed prior rulings on birth control and abortion, it would create a big, big problem with regard to confidence and trust in the Court.

9. Reminds me of Orwell

We shall abolish the orgasm. Our neurologists are at work upon it now. There will be no loyalty, except loyalty towards the Party. There will be no love, except the love of Big Brother. There will be no laughter, except the laugh of triumph over a defeated enemy. There will be no art, no literature, no science. -1984, Chapter 3

15. Republicans: Looking out for collusion between the Big Orgasm special interests and women.

Brought to you by the party that wants to get government off your back (Reagan 3:16) and into your pants.

16. Actually, since female orgasm increases the likelihood for conception...

.... you'd think they'd be all for making it illegal NOT to give a woman an orgasm.

18. Why would the government try to prevent the religious freedom

of church leaders telling women what to do with their bodies??

Why should the government impose its secular will on religious institutions??

Oh, the horror!!!

23. A perfect illustration how "moderates" are created.

In response to wil swings to the right, the part which opposes it (but which has a moral compass that is slightly on the blink) takes up a position that they think sounds reasonable in opposition to and defined by the wacky right argument.

Thus, the "moderate" position is born and no one notices how much it resembles the Republican positions of yesteryear before the wacky right-wing came out.
