Amendment 9 - Enumeration of Rights/Rights Retained

Summary

The Ninth Amendment was a provision conceived of by James Madison, “the father of the Bill of Rights,” to respond to a concern he had about the effect of drafting a bill of rights that omitted certain rights. In essence, it says, “Even if we left something, some important right, out of these amendments, it is still protected.”
