I have been active in the pro life movement praying on sidewalks for 12 years and I oppose these efforts as being wrongheaded.

Yes, but the 13th, 14th and 15th amendments make sense. A personhood amendment at the STATE level does NOT make ANY LEGAL SENSE. If a state can declare who is a person today, tomorrow a state can declare that someone is NOT a person. Can't do that. Federal amendment? Different story. That's where our efforts should go if we want a pro-life amendment.

They are persons in God's sight, but if they are persons under the law, then they would have rights that cannot be denied. That means for instance, if a mother drinks or somehow endangers her child's life, then a court might order the mother to have the child removed and placed somewhere safe. It means an ectopic pregnancy would have a right to life equal to the mother. Our civilization is already splintered by adversarial rights. This would increase the problem. On the state level, it would fail b/c it interfere's with a woman's constitutional right. We should try to make abortion illegal by passing a constitutional amendment taking away the woman's right, or by getting justices on the Court that will take away that right.
