Bill of Rights for Abortion?


Ninth Amendment Main article: Ninth Amendment to the United States Constitution The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.[69] The Ninth Amendment protects rights not specifically enumerated by the Constitution. It was rarely cited before the second half of the 20th century, when it was used as a partial foundation for the right to privacy in several landmark cases: Griswold v. Connecticut (1965), which struck down a law banning contraceptives, and Roe v. Wade (1973), which established a woman's right to an abortion. In Planned Parenthood v. Casey (1992), the Court used the amendment to strike down part of another abortion law, a case the Encyclopedia of the American Constitution describes as "the high-water mark, to date, of judicial willingness to use the Ninth Amendment"- between 1992 and 2000, the Court did not refer to the amendment a single time.[91]
