Re: Smoking and Ethics Re: Who cares about ethics?
Actually, Eric, it is a right.
The Ninth Constitutional Amendment specifies:
"The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people."
The idea of a Bill of Rights worried some of the founders greatly. They feared that, by listing rights not to be infringed by the government, rights that were not listed might be subject to government interference because such interference was not specifically prohibited. The Ninth Amendment was written in an attempt to preclude such abuse.
