Privacy – First emerges as a right in Griswold V Connecticut (1965) – that case struck down a state law  that made it illegal to possess contraceptives because it violated marital privacy             But the Constitution makes no explicit mention of this right             The justices argue that it is found in the first amendment’s right to free  association, third amendment’s right not to have soldiers quartered in your  home, 4 th  amendment protection against unwarranted searches, fifth  amendment right to self incrimination, and the 9 th  amendment which states  “The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed  to deny or disparage others retained by the people.”      The justices will later strike to down the prohibition against birth control for single people in  Eisenstadt v Baird (1972)       The right to privacy is then expanded in Roe v Wade (1973) where it includes the right to get an  abortion but there may be a compelling state interest to intervene as the pregnancy progresses.
