Palin: Constitutional Rights Should Be Decided By States

Katie Couric asks Sarah Palin if she thinks there is an inherent right to privacy in the Constitution. Palin nods her head and says, “I do.” Couric then asks Palin if she agrees that this inherent right to privacy is the cornerstone of Roe v. Wade. Palin again answers that she does — then adds that this is why abortion is an issue best decided by the individual states.

So let me get this straight, now. Roe v. Wade is based on the inherent constitutional right to privacy. The U.S. Constitution, we’re talking about. The right to privacy is guaranteed to all Americans by the U.S. Constitution, and the right to abortion is founded on that constitutional right to privacy. But each individual state should be allowed to decide for itself whether abortion should be legal or illegal.

Watch out, next she’ll be saying the right to vote or the right to petition the government for redress of grievances should be a matter for the states to decide.

Oh, and by the way. Roe v. Wade is the only Supreme Court case that Palin can name. She doesn’t know any others.
