Supreme Court could redefine when a fetus becomes a person, upholding abortion limits while preserving the privacy right under Roe v. Wade
theconversation.com

...Since the Supreme Court recognized a constitutional right to abortion almost 50 years ago, a powerful legal movement has sought to overturn the ruling, while abortion rights advocates have fought to protect it.

On Dec. 1, 2021, the court will hear a case many believe will force the conservative justices -- who now command a majority of the court -- to decide if they will strike down Roe v. Wade or uphold the long-standing precedent.

There is a third path the justices could take. The court may focus its ruling on a more neglected aspect of the ruling in Roe -- the court's understanding of the facts of fetal personhood....

Seems anything can be anything.

Except transgenders. They can't be.

Just like the Founders intended.

They'd be horrified to find out women and black people are voting.

Amendments fixed that. Good luck separating the Senate and SCOTUS.
