15. Exactly...Roe was the first case to explicitly recognize a right to privacy

The 4th amendment hints at a privacy that you have in your home or other possessions but Roe extended that to a physical right to privacy. If you have ever noticed, Republicans will go to lengths to talk about government overreach but they will never use the term right to privacy. Because if the did, the would be using the same language used in Roe.

The facts of Roe are about abortion, for sure. But the court found that there was an inherent right to privacy found in many of the constitutional amendments, and having an abortion fell within this right.

So if Roe goes, so does privacy. And then any number of crazy sex laws can be passed.
