Embryo research can lead to saving far more lives than those of the embryos. We send countless people to their death protecting the nation. Death is death. Is there a difference?

If the ‘unborn’ really are a protected class…. then why doesn’t the Constitution ever mention them?

We hear about natural BORN citizenship in the Constitution. But the Constitution does not offer citizenship on the basis of where a person was conceived or where they spent their embryonic months. Wonder why that is. Oh yes, now I remember. Because you’re not a person until you’re born. Says so in the Constitution.

“Unborn’ is a church term. It’s not a legal term.

If the embryo is a person then hen the pregnancy is discovered a certificate of personhood would have to be issued and if a live healthy baby is bot born in a normal time frame an investigation would be initiated to determine where that “person” is and why they are not born with penalties the same as if the “person” had already been born. And that doesn’t even get into health issues of the “person” when born. How many want to put their daughters or wives in that level of responsibility?
