The roe is a very timid creature; and, when chased by the hunter, runs exceeding swiftly : and, in these respects, it affords a lively image of the timorous men of Babylon, who had recourse to a precipitate flight, when they beheld the approach of a powerful enemy.

As in the Griswold decision, the right to privacy championed in Roe was not firmly rooted in any text of the Constitution or in any traditional, historical understanding of individual liberties.
