The connection between Roe v. Wade and your right to Privacy

After a leaked draft opinion indicated the U.S. Supreme Court intended to overturn Roe v. Wade, a nearly 50-year-old ruling that legalized abortion, the confusion has lead to another issue being brought to the forefront: Privacy.

The 14th amendment

States that “no State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.” In an article written by NBC Chicago/Associated Press on May 4, 2022, outlines what this possible historic change could mean for women throughout the United states.

” The court held a woman’s right to an abortion was implicit in the right to privacy protected under the 14th Amendment”.

 Justice Harry Blackmun
