THE BROAD STATUTORY RIGHT TO
FREEDOM OF ASSOCIATION
FALLS PARTLY UNDER THE
RIGHT TO PRIVACY.

While the right to privacy is well recognized in US constitutional law as being implied in the federal constitution, the Hawaii Constitution provides for an expressed right to privacy (Art. I Sec. 6). The state constitution thus provides even greater protection than the federal right to privacy.

The rubric of the right to privacy is what has generally been used in addressing cases involving sexual rights. US Supreme Court decisions have held that within the right to privacy there are the sexually-related fundamental rights.
