Biden, Palin discuss an inherent right to privacy in the Constitution

During a discussion of Roe v. Wade with Katie Couric, Vice-Presidential candidates Joe Biden and Sarah Palin discussed whether they believe there is an inherent right to privacy in the Constitution. “I think the liberty clause of the 14th Amendment… offers a right to privacy. Now that’s one of the big debates that I have with my conservative scholar friends, that they say, you know, unless a right is enumerated – unless it’s actually, unless [it] uses the word “privacy” in the Constitution – then no such “constitutional right” exists. Well, I think people have an inherent right,” Biden stated. When questions, Palin also stated that she believed there was an inherent right to privacy in the Constitution.
