Blame the founders

Apparently they didn't think they needed to say that people have a right to live.....and their omission of the right to live means that courts don't consider the right to live as a constitutionally guaranteed right.

Although I would argue that you usually have to be alive to have free speech or right to bear arms...or most of the other bill of rights.

5. Yes, I know that, but still the founding ideas...

The raison d'etre of the United States, no?

Technically, the 2nd amendment is in the bill of rights and not the constitution either...lol!

7. amendments are in the constitution. they weren't in the *original* constitution,

but they are in the current constitution. they become a part of the constitution when they are ratified. that's what an amendment is.
