This Article examines the role of the physician and current medical practice in the changing legal status of abortion restrictions. In doing so, this Article considers "constitutional privacy" from a perspective different from other inquiries, which almost always emphasize the individual patient as the right-holder, and concludes that, at least in the abortion context, the Court's vision of privacy consistently makes the doctor, not his patient, the centerpiece of the analysis.
