40. And I can completely deny you the right

For example, I could pass an amendment that said that black people could be sold into slavery. There is nothing in the constitution that would prevent this. They could be denied all their freedoms, and the government would be bound by law to enforce these sales as legal contracts.

When does total denial become "abolishing"?
