How PersonhoodUSA Will Hurt All Pregnant Women

Lynn M. Paltrow writes for the Huffington Post, “PersonhoodUSA apparently sees itself as the new, hipper, more effective incarnation of the anti-abortion movement. PersonhoodUSA hopes that by establishing the ‘pre-born, as legal persons with protection under the law’ it will end the ‘injustice of abortion.’ Its attempt to do this last November through a ‘personhood’ ballot measure in Colorado’s failed miserably. Nevertheless, PersonhoodUSA, is committed to ‘working tirelessly to establish personhood in every State.’ What supporters of this approach don’t mention is that if the unborn have legal personhood rights, pregnant women won’t.”
