Behold the Ninth Amendment

Take this, constitutional "patriots." Read the 9th Amendment to our Constitution. The founders were smarter than we think, for they knew they had not thought of everything and wisely included this provision bestowing rights even they had not imagined. Health care? Reproductive rights? It's all there if we so choose:

"The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people."

-- Bill of Rights, Number Nine
