The Sanders Firm, P.C.: SDP and Your Privacy
We at The Sanders Firm, P.C. in New York are passionate about your right to privacy and substantive due process (SDP). The right to privacy protections is found in various parts of the Bill of Rights, these include references to private beliefs, statements, and homes. The sanctity of privacy in one’s home is the probably the most common right associated with privacy.
The Fourteenth Amendment guarantees privacy for everyone under the law. Often times the right to privacy is discussed in terms of intimate personal decisions, for example, “What consenting adults do in their home is entirely up to them.” Although SDP in right to privacy is often about personal decisions, such as sexual partners, contraception, and other areas, SDP relates to other areas of privacy as well.
Griswold v. Connecticut (1965)
Griswold v. Connecticut, 381 US 479 – Supreme Court (1965) viewed as the case, which delineated clearly a person’s right to privacy. This SDP case focused on birth control and the government’s power to control it. In Griswold, the town created a statute that made it a crime for married couples to use contraception. It was also illegal for anyone to help them secure contraceptive devices. The Court ruled that the law was not valid because it violated one’s right to privacy. One justice noted that there is an implied right to privacy in the United States Constitution due to the fact that it protects one’s liberty through due process and in order to possess liberty one needs to have a right to privacy.
