Explicit Right to Privacy

All citizens have a right to privacy in their homes. No citizen shall have their habits, movements, purchases, or associations actively tracked or recorded by the government without probable cause and a judicially sanctioned warrant.

You are parsing words similar to the liberal court that found Right to Privacy in the Constitution. You have the Right to be Secure in your home, but not in total privacy to conduct illegal actions.

The 14th Amendment will suffice despite what the Supreme Court fabricated in Roe v Wade.

This amendment isn't intended to make Row v. Wade ironclad. Rather it is an attempt to adress the fact that the government can violate our privacy by recording our actions in public spaces. While it may be acceptable to let a police officer observe people in streets without probable cause, it does not hold to the spirit of the fourth amendment to allow citizens to have their public actions compiled into massive databases to be used against them without a warrant.

If you interpret the Right to Privacy that the Supreme Court fabircated in the 14th Amendment in Roe, you would have to decide tht abortions are only legal when done in the privacy of one's own home. That sounds like a growth industry. Home Abortions. Wonderful. 52 million abortions since Roe is not enough, we can do better.
