“The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.” 9th Amendment to the Constitution
Retained Rights are the natural liberty rights of "We the People" as individuals. They are enshrined in the Declaration of Independence. Since the seventeenth century, moral rights have been designated as “natural” (or inalienable) rights and explicitly distinguished from legal or contractual rights. Locke, Paine, Jefferson et al understood that natural rights do not rely on governments to enforce them through laws or contracts. in fact, natural rights predate governments altogether and are found even in places without government, the so-called state of nature. Natural rights are universal and cannot be surrendered or abridged by anyone.
The time has come for a majority of Americans to Stand Up and freely exercise our retained power to enumerate any of our unenumerated rights as we so choose.
A woman's inalienable right to her own body and to an abortion has been American common law for fifty years.

(Roe v. Wade)
A Child has the Right to to health, education, family life, play and recreation, an adequate standard of living and to be protected from abuse and harm.
