I'm not sure the SC has ever been asked to rule on the constitutionality of the Amendment process. It is pretty clearly stated that the Constitution can be amended and there is really only one limit put upon that process, and that is about state representation in the Senate.

But the SC rule for years on the legality of denying a class of humans their rights to life, liberty, and property and it ruled in favor of denying them many of these things for decades.

Furthermore, it is practically the purpose of the court system to deny people their rights "by due process of law" which is also possible.
