According to the 14th Amendment, "no State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws." A proposed Equal Rights Amendment states "Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex." If the Equal Rights Amendment is ratified, it would become the 28th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Based on this information, which of these statements is most accurate? The Equal Rights Amendment shows that the Constitution was written poorly. The Equal Rights Amendment is not necessary because rights are no longer important. The Equal Rights Amendment reverses the 14th Amendment and limits the rights of men and women. The Equal Rights Amendment may be necessary to explain the 14th Amendment and ensure equal rights for women.
