Right to Privacy; No Right to Privacy

Statement by William Reynolds
Communications Director and Legal Counsel
Senator Arlen Specter
U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee

“In their meeting this afternoon Sen. Specter thought Ms. Harriet Miers said she agreed with Griswold v. Connecticut and there was a right to privacy in the Constitution. After Sen. Specter commented on that to the news media, Ms. Miers called him to say that he misunderstood her and that she had not taken a position on Griswold or the privacy issue. Sen. Specter accepts Ms. Miers’s statement that he misunderstood what she said.”

Glad we cleared that up.

We believe that the principles of a free market, individual liberty and personal responsibility provide the greatest hope for meeting the challenges facing America in the 21st century.
