There is no right to privacy guaranteed in the constitution? Former Sen. Rick Santorum said (4.7.08), “this right to privacy that doesn’t exist in my opinion in the United States Constitution, this right that was created, it was created in Griswold — Griswold was the contraceptive case — and abortion. And now we’re just extending it out. And the further you extend it out, the more you — this freedom actually intervenes and affects the family. You say, well, it’s my individual freedom. Yes, but it destroys the basic unit of our society because it condones behavior that’s antithetical to strong healthy families.”[i] In the same interview, Santorum added, “The right to privacy is a right that was created in a law that set forth a (ban on) rights to limit individual passions. And I don’t agree with that.”[ii]
Acts outside of marriage are despicable?

Santorum said (2003) he had problems with “acts outside of traditional heterosexual relationships.”[iii]

Look Out, Those who go solo!!!: Santorum says off with their hands!

He’ll bring the troops home and station them in your bedroom.
