The constition does not have anything to do with who has rights.
The protection of fundamental human rights was a foundation stone in the establishment of the United States over 200 years ago.
The Constitution you fool is about people born.. When born do those rights adhere. Not before. That has been explained to enough times to you as well.

That would make too much sense though.. As we all know zef on her best days makes no sense. On her worse days babble on about things that have nothing to do with abortion.

No, you are mistaken. RvW does not grant the fetus rights.
As for being a person, it won't matter as far as a woman's reproductive rights are concerned. Even as a person, a fetus would not have the right to use another's bodily systems to sustain it's own life against the woman's will. No person has such a civil right.
That vacant logic would apply to children out of the womb up to about seven years of age. Law clearly establishes parental responsibilities and does not allow women to snuff their infants, nor toddlers because they are inconvenient at some moment in time.

The fetus has none.. That is a reality and fact.
there is nothing in Roe v wade that says anything about what a fetus right might be. It is the pregnant woman right at each stage of her pregnancy that details how much the State interest in balance with the Pregnant woman rights.
The fetus has no rights.
Inherent or other wise. Deal with it as that is reality.
Yes, currently, man-made laws give a woman's selfish concerns priority. That changes as soon as the law is reversed, or altered because of the civil rights of all human beings. Roe v Wade allows for the possibility of defining a fetus as a person. When that happens, you and others won't be allowed to murder humans by abortion, or by slamming a youngster up against some wall.

Of course it would not. Once born, they are not using another's organ systems to make their function.

Again, proclaiming the fetus a person will alter nothing. They STILL will not have the right to use anothers organ systems against their will to sustain their own organ function. No person has that right, and none ever will. Equal rights, not special rights, remember? A woman will still retain her right to do with her own uterus what she decides is best. And since abortion will still be legal, it will not be "murder".

You're simply wrong about everything! A child in the womb is not using the mother's organ system, but has their own organs and is completely a separate entity from the mother. Outside the womb, a child is totally dependent upon the mother for survival and cannot survive on its own.

I didn't say "survive". I spoke of organ fuction, and an embryo or fetus simply does not have organs that will function without the woman's. If it did, then it would be alive even if expelled from the uterus. And sorry, but that's not possible before very late in the pregnancy.

And no one has the right to use another's organs against their will.

I'm not wrong. You are.

A four year old child doesn't have organ systems that can function without the mother's, or those of some surrogate.

No, it doesn't.. Your continue insistence that it does shows what a fool you are here. It does not alter the fact and reality that Roe v Wade is about the rights of the woman that finds herself pregnant.

Simple biology says different..

The umbilical cord alone is a an engineering wonder that brings everything that a growing z/e/f needs. This is supplied directly from the woman bodies.

This is patently untrue. You need to educate yourself on the facts of human anatomy and physiology.

Care taking does not equal using someone's organs for your own to function.

Your continued insistence that it doesn't and your promotion of killing babies for convenience shows what a useless and degraded pagan you are here. Our verbiage would be different... you say "the woman that finds herself pregnant"; I say the woman who can't keep her legs together. The whole abortion issue isn't a women's issue anyway. It's a man's issue of convincing women they are something they are not in order to escape responsibility toward their women and their own children... drugged up loons who force women into being murderers and against their own natures.

How is killing a female fetus, which is a "female body", with abortion not "dominion over a female body"? How is killing anyone with any method not dominion over their body?
Because a fetus is just a fetus you retard.

Classifying a fetus as human is like classifying sperm as human. Both are obviously not human but have the "potential" to be.

Does that mean each time a man ejaculates he commits genocide on millions of humans?

God you rightwing nutjobs are retarded.

You are wrong. A 3 YR. OLD CHILD CANNOT SURVIVE UNLESS ITS MOTHER'S ORGANS ARE FUNCTIONING.

A fetus is a completely realized, intact and unique human being, who enjoys music. Sperm, or the ovum is not.

Completely wrong, given the fact that any adult may perform those caretaking tasks.

A fetus is never complete, as it's circulatory system does not begin functioning on it's own until after birth, with the first breath, and at that point, it's no longer a fetus.

As for "human being", that is not a scientific designation. Human is, but not human being. It's a philosophical concept, and as such, is a matter of opinion.
