Scalia: No protection against sex bias, no right to privacy in Constitution

• Rawstory
Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia has said he believes the US Constitution doesn't provide protection from discrimination on the basis of gender or sexual orientation.
In 1965, the Supreme Court ruled in Griswold v. Connecticut that a state ban on contraceptives was unconstitutional because it violated the "right to marital privacy."

Correct on both counts. Good thing the constitution isn't an infallible gold standard of truth, justice, ethics and morality. Oh, or did you think it was? Joke's on you, in that case. Looking for ethics in the constitution is sort of like looking for science in the Bible. Documents totally unrelated to the concepts you're searching for.
