Right to privacy

This post at Lawyers, Guns, and Money about Mitt Romney makes a point that's relevant to the Roberts nomination as well:
Democrats should be tying Roe to Griswold and making the broader Republican agenda against reproductive rights clear...
Roberts needs to be grilled on this; he must be asked directly whether or not he believes in a constitutional right to privacy. If he says no, or refuses to answer, Democrats should make it clear that Roberts (as well as the GOP) is a threat not just to legalized abortion but to legalized contraception as well.

The abortion issue might not hit home to some who could never see themselves in such a position. But almost everyone uses some form of birth control, and they should know that if the "strict constructionists" in the GOP had their way, their right to do so would be dependent on the whim of their state senators and representatives.
