Meyer and Pierce gain significance for much more than what they have been characterized as announcing: the broad right of parents to raise their children as they deem fit. Although correct and important, this characterization fails to acknowledge the essence of these cases. Reference to the cases as establishing rights to rear and educate one’s children gives the impression that the cases are primarily concerned with human (and, in particular, family) relationships. Rather, the principles supporting the cases center on the freedom of mind and character, and the place of the state in ensuring that freedom.

Because Connecticut had failed to demonstrate that the law furthered a compelling state interest, the Court struck down the law as illegitimate. Griswold stands for the recognition of the highly protected right to privacy even though the Constitution does not explicitly articulate the right. Like other efforts to create Constitutional doctrine from unenumerated rights, it attracted criticism from other justices. Several accepted that the right to privacy existed, but they disagreed that the right emanated from the penumbra of multiple rights found in the Constitution.

It was not necessarily clear how these cases would involve decisional privacy, given that the results of the decisions would be public. Nor was it clear how they involved some of the private decisions that previously had been protected in the form of parental rights and family privacy, a point highlighted by the dissenting opinions in Moore. But, the Court still framed these cases as intrusions into people’s sense of privacy and ability to make their own choices on matters of deep personal significance.
