Allan Powell: Why such resistance to the right of privacy?
To no one’s surprise, the right of privacy came into question by diehards of the right in the recent election cycle. Conservative politicians have promised to undo Roe v. Wade, which is grounded on this right. Ever since Roe v. Wade became law, there have been conservative writers (e.g. George Will) who belittle its legitimacy and assert that it is a “newly discovered” right. This canard is repeated by male-dominated legislatures, male-dominated courts and male-dominated organizations.
