My disagreement with the Court’s opinion holding that there’s such a violation here is a narrow one, referring to the application of the First Amendment to the facts and circumstances of this specific case. But my disagreement with Brothers HARLAN, WHITE and GOLDBERG is extra fundamental. I think that if properly construed neither the Due Process Clause nor the Ninth Amendment, nor both together, could underneath any circumstances be a correct foundation for invalidating the Connecticut law. I focus on the due process and Ninth Amendment arguments together as a result of on analysis they become the identical thing—merely using different phrases to say for this Court and the federal judiciary energy to invalidate any legislative act which the judges discover irrational, unreasonable or offensive. I agree with my Brother STEWART’S dissenting opinion. And like him I do to not any extent no matter base my view that this Connecticut law is constitutional on a belief that the legislation is smart or that its coverage is a good one.

My conclusion that the concept of liberty is not so restricted and that it embraces the right of marital privateness although that proper just isn’t mentioned explicitly within the Constitution1 is supported both by quite a few decisions of this Court, referred to within the Court’s opinion, and by the language and historical past of the Ninth Amendment. In reaching the conclusion that the best of marital privateness is protected, as being within the protected penumbra of specific ensures of the Bill of Rights, the Court refers back to the Ninth Amendment, ante, at 484.
