Invoked the right to privacy under the 14th amendment.

There are no reservations, so Steve Cintani on FOXNEWS speculates that all sodomy laws in the 13 states that have them will also be overturned.

It will be interesting to see if Santorum's argument now comes into play, or if the court will find a way to finagle around it.

Does this mean you can have sex with your 18-year-old daughter now? How about 15-year-old if a resident of Hawaii? (that's the age of consent in that state.)

Did they find a way for laws against incest to not be subject to the right to privacy ?

There are things that one should not be able to consent to.

One cannot by law consent to be a slave or another.

This is an example of the govt disallowing consenting adults from doing their thing.

Privacy is not an absolute right - and it certainly is not present in the constitution.

I Think it would be hard to fanagle a way around Santorum's argument, but O'Connor is excellent at creating these imaginary lines in the sand.

There is no right to privacy in the 14th amendment. It was invented by leftists to protect certain immoral behaviors, like abortion, and will eventually be used by the left to support overturning laws against child molestation and pornography.

Two words: Rita Cosby.

Of the thirteen states, only three or four (I believe) have anti-sodomy laws written narrowly, as the Texas law was. The others are more broad, and may not be affected - depending on just what the Supremes said in their ruling.

"Invoked the right to privacy under the 14th amendment. "

So, can I smoke pot in the privacy of my home?

Can I molest my children?

Can I make bombs?

Where will the line be drawn now?

Wait, are you sure?? The only ruling which appears to have been handed down so far was the statute of limitations [child sexual abuse] ruling; or is AP behind the curve?
