What Right to Privacy?
Prepare: Read Chapters 10 and 11 in the course text and review the following resource Moyers & Company: What’s Fueling the Modern Abortion Debate?
Reflect: The fact that the Constitution does not have a specific clause or reference to a right to privacy has become a very contentious cultural, social, and political issue in the United States. The ability of the government to enter into the private lives of American citizens has clearly been restricted by provisions in the Fourth Amendment, yet the debate over certain privacy based rights such as contraception, abortion rights, and consensual sexual activity continues today. In particular, when discussing abortion, many immediately begin to debate a woman’s right to choose to have an abortion or not. At the heart of the issue constitutionally, is not whether a woman has the right to make this decision but whether she has the right to privacy under the Fourth Amendment.
Write: In your initial post of at least 300 words, utilize the Constitution, established case law, and scholarly sources to answer the following questions:
How does the right to privacy protect a women’s right to have an abortion or not?
Is this a constitutionally valid interpretation of the right to privacy? Why or why not?
Do not rely upon personal opinion to make your argument. Support your claims with examples from the required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references.
