From our friends at WorldNetDaily comes news of a group of Coloradans who are trying to “exploit a loophole in the Roe v. Wade U.S. Supreme Court ruling” by getting the state to declare that zygotes are people too. Per WND, the state’s Legislative Council already has approved the wording of the proposal, which aims to amend the state’s constitution to declare in part that:
THE TERMS “PERSON” OR “PERSONS” SHALL INCLUDE ANY HUMAN BEING FROM THE MOMENT OF FERTILIZATION.The article goes on to say that:
The new definition of person specifically would be applied to sections 3, 6, and 25 of Article II of the state constitution.So, I guess Jesus’ General and his militia of armed Zygote-Americans were just slightly ahead of their time.
Those sections confirm that all “persons” have certain natural, essential and inalienable rights, including “the right of enjoying and defending their lives and liberties,” that courts of justice shall be open to every “person,” and no “person” shall be deprived of life, liberty or property without due process of law.
