It's their "natural right". Would you deny them their natural rights? This entire thread is about the inherently inviolable nature of natural rights, which do not require Constitutional protection. Except when they do. And those that are explicitly protected are of the same intrinsic value, unchanging, despite march of time and social progress, immune from revision.
