Well, the way it works is, the rights that the drafters of the Constitution specifically numbered, are second-class rights, except the right of the press to have free speech.

The recently discovered rights implied in penumbras and emanations are absolutely sacrosanct.

The only two rights that cannot be abridged, are the rights of the press to engage in political speech, and the right of privacy, which only covers sex acts and the abortion of children resulting from sex acts. The right of privacy does not extend to matters not involving sex. Your right to smoke can be abridged by anyone, but your right to engage in high-risk sex is sacrosanct.

I think that Justice Thomas has a sign up in his office to the effect of "Don't emanate into the penumbra."
