They also confirm that liberty is the freedom that exists beyond governmental influence, in the zones where the government may not enter. Decisional Privacy Rights as Individual Liberties Decisional privacy rights have been deemed protected by the Constitution although they are not even mentioned in it. Therein lies the importance of substantive due process, which the Court would use to recognize privacy rights as we know them. That recognition would emerge in a series of remarkable cases that focused on intimate matters, notably sexual relationships and the decisions supporting them.

The Nebraska Supreme Court had found persuasive the state’s authority to inculcate youth in the ideas and sentiments serving the country’s best interests. Mr. Meyer appealed to the Supreme Court, which overturned his conviction and struck down the language prohibition. In overturning the conviction, the Court did much more than rule for Mr. Meyer. The Court laid the foundation for the substantive right to liberty that would become known as decisional privacy. The Meyer Court found that the legislation had gone too far in trying to indoctrinate children.

What emerged from doctrinal developments was a protection of liberties relating to the ability to make decisions without undue governmental interference. That development made particular sense given prior ones relating to substantive due process, particularly the liberties of parents to control their children’s upbringing. But, it also made sense because the Constitution explicitly identified liberty, not privacy. No justices dispute that the Constitution protects liberty; if privacy in the sense of decisional privacy still exists, it remains much more tenuously accepted.
