3. I understand that Alito did not mention the Ninth Amendment at all

Ninth Amendment: "The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people." That's an oversight one could drive a truck through. Just because the Constitution does not contain an exhaustive, comprehensive enumeration of every right for every person does not mean that the people don't have a right not mentioned. You know, like a right to privacy, or a right to bodily autonomy.

When the time comes to reverse this horrible decision, Alito's failure to explain why a woman's right to comprehensive health care, including abortion services, isn't covered by the Ninth Amendment should feature prominently.

Until then, women will suffer and die wholly avoidable deaths.
