Hi there.  Personhood is a legal definition.  Persons are endowed with the full range of rights of their civilizations.  Fetuses are not persons, as has been demonstrated numerous times, from issues such as whether a fetus needs to pay half-price to ride a train (like a child does) to whether its mother has the right to invoke her own rights to determine her own medical care (or lack thereof) on its behalf.



 


I agree. Just considering the USA alone, women did not become fully persons before the law until 1919 while blacks did not become so until 1965.

the floggings will continue until morale improves
