9th Amendment Artwork

"The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people."
-9th Amendment of the United States Constitution

The ninth amendment provides that  the naming of certain rights in the Constitution does not take away from the people rights that are not named. Yet neither the language nor the history of the Ninth Amendment offers any hints as to the nature of the rights it was designed to protect. The standing effect of this is that the Bill of Rights does not out weigh any other laws because it is written.

Art Prints

The above piece of artwork comes from a collection that I have been using by Tony Zupancic. He illustrates the Bill of Rights, the first ten amendments, through black and white art. The art that appears above states Right to Life and Liberty. Along with the Constitution, people will still have certain rights that will lead to enforce. freedom and justice.
