In the Bill of Rights, the 1st Amendment to the U.S. Constitution states that "Congress shall make no law ... abridging the freedom of speech," and the 5th Amendment says that "no person shall be ... deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law." The word "privacy" does not appear in the Bill of Rights or anywhere else in the Constitution, but the 4th Amendment says that the "right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause...." In Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court ruled that the 14th Amendment protects "the right to privacy," but the amendment does not contain the word "privacy" or any synonym for it.
