Controversy over The Ninth Amednment
The ninth amendment was made to protect the people and give them their rights. It makes sure that anything that is not written in the Constitution isn't taken away. The problem is that whenever Congress wants to restrict something the question is if it violates this amendment. The ninth amendment was very vague and this has caused problems many times.
