dobbs vs women's health leads to dystopia

i thought it might be rooted in conservative distain for unenumerated rights. natural rights, such as privacy and autonomy were seen by the founders as "endowed by their creator" and thus not necessary to enshrine as amendments.

Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization :: 597 U.S. ___ (2022) :: Justia US Supreme Court Center

in section (3) of the decision the justices minimize the right to bodily autonomy.

Those criteria, at a high level of generality, could license fundamental rights to illicit drug use, prostitution, and the like.

there are cases "preceeding casey" that seeem to recognize bodily autonomy as a right, but

Abortion is different because it destroys what Roe termed “potential life”

this path leads, i'm afraid, to a place where you have no right to refuse vaccine. any more than you have a right to take drugs or prostitute yourself.

taken just a little farther, if your kidney is a match and can be used to save a "potential life" you have no right to keep your own organ.

there are already huge repercussions to the court's refusal to uphold privacy as a natural right. but decisions like dobbs lead to dystopia,
