There is much conflict over the issue of privacy in the US government today. Though much of the conflict revolves around the right to an abortion without parental or spousal notification, the right certainly applies to other aspects, like the Patriot Act and Civil Rights movement, in the lives of its constituents. Through the use of various amendments, cases and other resources, this essay examines these aspects and proves that a right to privacy exists in the Constitution, although not stated explicitly, and argues for the Supreme Court authority to undermine the Congress.

From the Paper:

"The right against unsanctioned intrusion of the government in the lives of its constituents is a fundamental, unalienable right of human beings to privacy. However, governments often create law enforcement agencies specifically designed to override this right in order to maintain security within the country. Civil rights libertarians strongly criticize such intervention, arguing, with proof, that such designs allow governments to become repressive regimes and prosecute people for political dissent. The issue does not concern whether a right to privacy is important, which it undoubtedly is, but whether the Supreme Court has been granted enough authority by the US Constitution to enforce this right."
