“Privacy”: Some Animals Are More Equal Than Others

“Even if one considers the interests of unborn children more important than privacy, there’s no question that privacy would be a casualty of [a ruling overturning Roe v. Wade. It would allow state legislatures to ignore privacy in at least two areas — women’s uteri and doctor-patient relationships. If those areas of privacy are less important than the sanctity of life in the eyes of abortion opponents, how is the privacy of Supreme Court justices and their families more important than, as the First Amendment puts it, ‘the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances?'” (05/11/22)
