You. Me. Everybody.
We're all just grown up embryos.
What is Personhood?
Personhood is legally defining all human beings as "persons."
A "person" is a human being who is fully protected under the law; and the legal term "personhood" describes this condition.
Once a human being is declared a person, that individual is guaranteed legal protection of endowed rights.
To better understand personhood, we ask the fundamental question of when human life begins.
Embryological science is clear that in human sexual reproduction, human life begins at fertilization: the union of an egg and sperm resulting in a unique, genetically distinct human being.
Biology answers the simple question. Human life begins at conception.
The follow-up questions: "Is this tiny embryonic human being a 'person' who is guaranteed the right to life?" "Should human beings be protected in law as persons; as citizens with full constitutional protections?"
The answer to the question of personhood is a political and legal one.
Once a human being is declared to be a legal person, there can be no exceptions to his or her inalienable right to life; just as there are no exceptions to your right to life.
After forty years of abortion on demand in America, the pro-life movement is losing patience with an incremental legislative approach that simply manages the slaughter of our preborn brothers and sisters. Restoring personhood to the preborn child, with respect to the right to life and without exception, is an effort that is gaining momentum across the country. READ MORE HERE.
Human embryologists, the real scientific experts in the area of human development, authoritatively conclude that in sexual reproduction, a human embryo is a human being immediately beginning at fertilization - the fusion of an egg and sperm immediately resulting in a new, genetically distinct human being (zygote). At no other logical or scientifically sound point can we say that human life begins. READ MORE HERE.
