Amendment 9 Quotes of the 9th Amendment Questions My Reaction Background Research From: Francis Moreau 8B What is the Amendment 9? The 9th Amendment is part of the Bill of Rights. Also, it means that Americans get to enjoy basic rights that is not spelled out in the Constitution and that the Bill of Rights doesn't out rule other laws because it is written.

and they didn't want to have a Bill of Rights.

Also, the Anti-Federalist wanted the rights to be spelled out on the Bill of Rights, or then the government would take over these rights. My reaction is that in the 9th Amendment,
