The Ninth Amendment
The U.S. Constitution limits the power of the federal government. The Ninth Amendment makes it clear that the rights of U.S. citizens are not limited by the Constitution. It states that Americans have rights that are not listed in the Constitution. In other words, the Bill of Rights is not an exhaustive list.

The text of this amendment reads, “The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.”
