The Ninth Amendment is the key to a proper understanding of rights in the United States. The founders created the Ninth Amendment to protect unlisted natural law rights as they were understood in their day. This amendment was never intended to allow future generations to create new rights. Rather, it was to safeguard the morality and natural rights of the founding generation.
Unfortunately this understanding has been lost over time. This book calls for courts to return to the founders' intent regarding the Ninth Amendment. If they do so, confusion over such issues as abortion and gay marriage will simply disappear.
