The "right to privacy," "unenumerated rights," and similar terms have become so associated with the right to obtain an abortion that many members of the GOP have begun to have a knee-jerk opposition to these rights and precedents.
But unenumerated rights, including a right to privacy, secure much more than the right to obtain an abortion. They secure the right to vote, to control the upbringing of one's children (by sending them to religious school or schools that teach foreign languages, for instance), the right to use contraception, and the right of consenting adults to engage in sexual activity.
It's one thing to sincerely believe that abortion is murder, but it is another thing entirely to reject constitutional protection of this entire list of freedoms.
