    You want to prohibit states from banning pre 20 week abortion.

    What an absolutely cretinous statement. You are some special kind of special needs kiddy.

    If there is no punishment (there is currently none) then what is the point of the law existing?
    The entire ruling hinges on protecting patient-doctor confidentiality.

    It's still a heart and a brain.  If a human had a very underdeveloped brain and had down syndrome, would this merit the death penalty for them?  If not, then why would it merit a fetus the death penalty?

    And its still the heart and brain of a tadpole, not a frog, if you want to return to the salient part of my post.

    Once born, there is no denying rights (at least in the US, its pretty well laid out in the Constitution).


    Not being old enough to have rights, on the other hand, especially if you aren't actually the thing we confer rights too, is what is relevant.

    A tadpole does not look like a frog.  This is largely if not entirely what separates it from a frog.  A fetus looks like a human at around 6 weeks after conception (https://www.mayoclinic.org/healthy-lifestyle/pregnancy-week-by-week/in-depth/prenatal-care/art-20045302).

    Gotta love the consistency of conservatives that want to make government so small it fits inside a woman’s uterus.

    Or conferring personhood to a clump of cells with human DNA.

    Yeah - that doesn’t sound deserving of personhood.

    Seems like any abortion statute is conferring legal personhood on a fetus at various stages of development by conferring rights of life to a fetus that can then supersede the rights of a woman.

    Until the Congress sets the standard for personhood, the issue will always be at the arbitrary whims of State law.

    A tadpole doesn't look like a frog, because it isn't.

    Kinda like how a fetus/embryo isn't a person.  I mean, if its the looks you think that are the major differences, I can understand why this entire subject is difficult for you.

    On the matter of looks, to me it looks like a bear embryo.  Or an ape embryo.  Do those get personhood, too?
