you need to slow down a tad don't ya?? It seems to me that the article is saying that there's a bill going though the legislature, ain't nothing been
banned just yet..
even if it does happen to be passed, it has to make it's approval by the supreme court most likely... which hasn't happened yet.
and, there's been personhood bills in the past, so, no this isn't the beginning of anything...
if you have a "person" with the same constitutional rights as all other people, dwelling within a "person" who has these same rights, there's gonna
be times when those rights conflict with each other in major ways, possibly producing negative results for one of the two parties.
every person has the right to decide their own healthcare, or choose not to seek health care. matter of fact, healthcare is one area that is so
protected, you have no right to know the health issues of anyone else, or the treatments they opt for to address those issues.. so, if you have a
doctor who is prescribing vitamins, or other medications to assist the fetus along, but the mother chooses not to take it for some reason, maybe she
just doesn't appreciate the upset stomach that comes along with the medicine... well, you have a conflict!!
if you have a women who is working in the printing industry, around chemicals that have been proven to not be good for fetal development but she needs
the job to pay for the rent... you have a conflict!!!
if you have a mother of a young toddler who insists to pick that toddler up to protect them from danger even against doctor's wishes... you have a
and these aren't even the major conflicts... heck women have been locked up for refusing a c-section till the nuts could get a court order and
forcing her to have the c-section,,, and in at least one case, the women has died because she was too weak to endure the c-section, just as her
so, short of locking women up and forcing meds down their throat, forcing them to take vacations from work that they can't afford, forcing the right
diet down their throats... just how in the heck are you gonna protect the "constitutional rights of the fetus"? seems to me that sooner or later we
would have to decide just who's rights should be laid aside and who's should be protected..
