Personhood 2014-16

After watching a few of the Sunday morning shows and listening to Republicans it appears that their latest and greatest anti-abortion plan is "Personhood". Even more extreme than a rape or abortion rights debate is personhood, the status of being a person. Republicans take this term to the extreme and have redefined it to mean that fundamentally life begins at the point of inception, no matter how that conception occurred. Some Republicans feel that if they can convince enough of the American people to grasp this personhood concept, then they will win banning abortion in this country.

I can't believe that by simply flavoring their anti-abortion agenda with a fancy new name, that their movement will gain traction? So we've heard numerous times since the election that Republicans simply need to "rebrand" their policies and it definitely seems that this is what they've concluded and are implementing. Gov. Jindal even said "Enough of the crazy talk".

1. Remember when Republicans used to say things like "where are the jobs?".

Kinda figured they weren't serious then or now.

2. Does that make zygotes and fetuses citizens then?

If it does then will we have millions of new anchor fetuses? I can see millions of tourists coming to the US for "conception vacations" and when they have the baby they can prove when and where the baby was conceived.

4. Issue a Death Certificate every month for Women of Childbearing Age?

Are they aware how many "persons" get flushed every month? Homicide charges if a woman has intercourse and gets her period?

They are insane.

5. It's legal concept

 

and very superficial compared to being human being. I often wonder why Americans refer to themselves as 'persons' rather than humans.
