“We hold that Roe and Casey must be overruled. The Constitution makes no reference to abortion, and no such right is implicitly protected by any constitutional provision…”
Justice Alito’s 2022 draft opinion overturning Roe v. Wade
Nobody could expect the Constitution would implicitly protect a right to abortion seeing as women were considered property at the time. The concept that we might have healthcare options not just available but inalienable was inconceivable when the Constitution was written.
You know what the Constitution does say? The Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution states “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures shall not be violated.”
I am not secure in my person if the government can dictate my medical procedures.
