U.S. Constitution, right to privacy and abortion?


In deciding Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court ruled that a Texas statute forbidding abortion except when necessary to save the life of the mother was unconstitutional. The Court arrived at its decision by concluding that the issue of abortion and abortion rights falls under the right to privacy. The Constitution does not specifically mention a right to privacy. However, Supreme Court decisions over the years have established that the right to privacy is a basic human right, and as such is protected by virtue of the 9th Amendment.


The search and seizure place in the bill of rights. The fourteenth amendment. That's where the courts see it and the courts have the final say on the meaning of what the constitution says. People can read, interpret, and disagree. The courts decide (or leave undecided nationwide with regional rules).


In amendment 14, the right to privacy is derived (but it is not explicitly said anywhere in the constitution). This was incorporated in Roe v. Wade


It doesn't say anything about thsoe specific things...but in the Declaration, it states the right to "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness"....an individual might not be able to pursue happiness if they can't do immoral things behind closed doors?? maybe?? idk.


No where that's because abortion is murder.
