Summary
McThomas (political science, Mississippi State U.) seeks to explain the disparity of definitions and conceptions revolving around what the right to privacy entails. She argues that the distinguishing feature of the right in the US is whether its claim is based on property or liberty. Proprietary privacy, based on property, covers such matters as medical records, wiretapping, and owning one's image, she says, while decisional privacy, based on liberty, involves decisions about intimate matters such as the right-to-die, same-sex marriage, and abortion. She finds that people are granted greater protection of their proprietary privacy rights than of their decisional privacy rights, a situation out of step with the theoretical understanding of privacy.
