Person defined by The Winston's English Dictionary: " a human being as distinguished from a thing or an animal; the body of a human being; mode of being; a human being recognized as having rights and obligations".
It seems obvious to anyone who has had medical or nursing school training that humans in the womb are humans. But we have to convince those who never had any sciences or any anatomy or any physiology or any genetics and only studied legal points of the law, that humans-in-the-womb or humans-in-utero are human and should have legal protection.
. The progress of personhood is ramping up with this news of Jan 2017:
Alabama allowed wrong death lawsuit on behalf of 6 wk embryo : https://rewire.news/article/2017/01/11/alabama-wrongful-death-fetus-reproductive-rights/; 12 Jan 2017;
Trump nominates co-sponsor of personhood amendment: https://rewire.news/article/2017/01/11/alabama-wrongful-death-fetus-reproductive-rights/
Wikipedia has a discussion discussion of human life amendments :https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_Life_Amendment; aka personhood; 12 Jan 2017
But there is substantial scientific studies to prove that humans in the womb are human with human DNA:
This study established that umbilical cords of newly born babies have human DNA : https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28074931; 12 Jan 2017 This study established that human DNA exists in the dried blood spots collected from the uterus during exams: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27462375; 12 Jan 2017; This study established that human beings in the womb feel stress:
"Exposure to stress in utero is a risk factor for the development of problem behavior in the offspring, though precise pathways are unknown. We examined whether DNA methylation of the glucocorticoid receptor gene, NR3C1, was associated with experiences of stress by an expectant mother and fearfulness in her infant. "https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27462209; 12 Jan 2017;
This study establishes that babies in utero can develop allergies; "There is compelling evidence that the risk of developing allergy is influenced by early life events and particularly in utero exposures. METHODS: A comprehensive literature review was undertaken which outlines prenatal risk factors... 12 Jan 2017 https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27044002;
Now, here's the thing: I think I have found the way to defeat roe v Wade easily. In the original 14th amendment persons were assumed to be human. The Original 14th amendment :
"No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws." https://www.law.cornell.edu/constitution/amendmentxiv
But in 1992 the Constitutional amendment the people ratified was changed by someone secretly to be this set of words:
"Constitution of United States of America 1789 (rev. 1992)
Section 1 All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."
How did they reword a Constitutional amendment without the vote of the people? Who and how did a Constitutional amendment get re-worded without a vote of the citizens? The fact that was done illegally should make it easy to undo it.

"This is not as radical an idea as it may sound. The law is fully capable of making and unmaking "persons" in the strictly legal sense. For example, one Supreme Court case in 1894 (Lockwood, Ex Parte 154 U.S. 116) decided that it was up to the states "to determine whether the word 'person' as therein used [in the statute] is confined to males, and whether women are admitted to practice law in that commonwealth." As atrocious as this ruling sounds, such a precedent continued well into the twentieth century and, in 1931, a Massachusetts judge ruled that women could be denied eligibility to jury status because the word "person" was a term that could be interpreted by the court." from Scientific American .
Here is some of the history of this effort to grant personhood to all humans:

This is one of my photos of the U S flag I photographed on walkabout to remind all I am a U S citizen with all civil liberties including freedom of Press, freedom to worship THE LORD GOD, and freedom to associate with whomever I want or not to associate with those GOD labels "abomination" and freedom to protest governments.
