Response to Re: What about the Bill of Rights...

 

"It is the Bill of Rights that specifically defines the limits governmental power. But no where in the Bill of Rights does it say women can show their breasts in public. In fact, it doesn't address the issue of clothes or nudity at all. Now some have used the argument of "freedom of expression" but rarely have the courts bought this argument. "

The 9th and 10th amendments give all rights that are neither explicitly given to the people, nor prohibited to the people by the constitution, to the people.

Amendment IX

The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

Amendment X

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
