Question and answer
The Supreme Court extended the right of privacy implied by the 14th Amendment to include a woman's right to
The Supreme Court determined the right to privacy is a fundamental liberty deserving constitutional protection under the doctrine of substantive due process, [ which has been extrapolated from the language of a number of Amendments and applied through the Fourteenth Amendment Due Process Clause. This concept has been instrumental in more than one decision. Some of the better known decisions
include Griswold v. Connecticut, (1965), Roe v. Wade, (1973), and Lawrence v. Texas, (2003). The "privacy" precedent was set in Griswold v. Connecticut, 381 US 479 (1965), which nullified laws restricting married couples' right to use and be counseled about the use of contraceptives. Nearly a decade later, Roe v. Wade, 410 US 13 (1973) challenged a Texas anti-abortion law, and overturned statutes that prohibited abortion in 46 states (the procedure was legal in four), based on the right to privacy, which was extrapolated from language in the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. ]
