  1. I have trouble understanding how an unborn fetus can be given personhood at the expense of the mother’s rights to for any reason she decides to have an abortion. It is totally against the Constitution which gives those rights to all US citizens and that includes more than 50% of those, viz. WOMEN. Just based on those rights no woman should be told what to do and most important her rights are not to be put on any Ballot because they are Guaranteed by the Constitution. Forget about privacy which was the main reason for passing Roe versus Wade. Just based on a woman’s Constitutional rights the Government has no business intruding into her life and telling her what she can or cannot do. If a woman has been recognised as having a right to her autonomy as all US citizens have, how can her fertilized egg’s rights supercede hers. Those Legislators and Judges who accept such a contradiction should be sued by women in those States that rob women of their Personhood and unjustly give it to any of her 500,000 fertilized eggs. That is absolutely outrageous and needs to be challenged once and for all.
