    Right

    It's not up to the govt to decide issues of morality

    That's one reason why abortion is legal

    No, but they can enact laws which limit your ability to exercise those rights

    Amendment IX

    The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.
    No, didn't forget, just recognise that that particular amendment is worthless in the face of any SCOTUS. They simply say that non-ennumerated right wasn't one of the ones the founders were talking about.

    There are many questions which have no answer

    What is the sound of one hand clapping?

    please provide information in the constitution which states this.

    since the bill of rights limits government from violating rights, not restricting them

    No, it's not. Government decides issues of law. Nowhere, in any SCOTUS decision on abortion that I'm aware of, is morality even mentioned. Perhaps you could provide a quote?
