Personhood – (slavery _ abortion)

We again have a question before us, which we have thoroughly considered for most of our nations existence. It is the question of “Personhood.”

For centuries we debated over slavery; could a person hold another person in a condition of enslavement?

Since We, The People of our Nation of United States, had agreed that every Person has equal right to Life, Liberty and the Peaceable Pursuit of Happiness; our question was ultimately about personhood; who is a person?

We currently have a debate raging about whether a fetus can be aborted.

Since We, The People of Our Nation of United States, still accept that every person has the right to Life, Liberty and the Peaceable Pursuit of Happiness; our question, again, is ultimately about personhood; when is a fetus a person?
