Is it not amazing that we are forced, in our so-called advanced society, to defend the notion of personhood? Is it not shocking that supposedly bright people will not protect the most innocent and helpless person the one in the womb? Have we not learned from slavery how to properly define a person? Have we learned nothing from Hitler's Reich regarding the definition of personhood?

The "Personhood Test" puts the onus on those who favor the mutilation of a baby in his or her mother's womb. This test places the burden of proof exactly where it should be, on those who say they are so-called "pro- choice" (though the baby never has a choice).  Those who say, "I am personally against abortion, but …" need to be exposed for what they are: fundamentally unwilling to defend "persons." Those who respond in a quasi-chameleon fashion with: "I defend abortion but the number of abortions should be reduced …" must be exposed for what they are, persons against persons, persons against people. That is why every caring, compassionate, thinking, rational human would and must support a Personhood Amendment.
