Roe v. Wade decision misapplied Constitution

The Herald’s July 3 editorial contained a comment on the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby decision. It stated: “That it is a misapplication of the Constitution in general and the Bill of Rights in particular.” If this was a misapplication, then what was the Supreme Court decision of January 1973 in Roe v. Wade? In that decision, the Supreme Court took the phrase “due process of law” from Section 1 of the 14th Amendment, and got “the right to privacy” from it. So don’t think the Hobby Lobby decision was that much of a misapplication.
