Yes and no. The constitution allows for states to legislate laws in this regard. The right of the state to infringe on individual rights was allowed as a compromise for the ratification of the constitution, hence for example slavery was left to the states. The morality of this may be questioned, but the legality is clear. Unfortunately, the constitution does not fully protect what was putforth in the Bill of Rights.
