Should human fetuses be granted constitutional rights?

To anyone who said no, at what point does a fetus become a person worthy of constitutional rights? Surely not birth, because a fetus just before birth is very much a person, no?

When they can be counted on a census.

Even born dead babies get counted. So, yes. As soon as it is considered to be a member of our population, then they can have the same Rights.

So you are fine with third-trimester abortions then? Because according to your argument, they don't have the right to life until they are born.

I'm not having a third trimester abortion. If I respect the Rights of others, then I don't know anyone who has or does up to the last minute abortions. I don't have the Right to know. Thinking you do violates all women's Rights.

If you want to stop abortion make it illegal to not wear a condom. At least put your efforts into teaching men to use condoms.

If you ban abortions, people will just do it themselves

No they don't. Fetuses are not citizens or people.

14th amendment: "all persons **born** or naturalized in the United States"

Fetuses once had more rights than African Americans. Just sit on that for a bit
