And I do not have to, and it is not a provable question.
Some religions contend that "ensoulment" doesn't happen till 40 days after birth.
The Constitution says it is a citizen once it is born. Thus that is when it starts having "rights" under the supreme Law of the Land.
The Constitution never specifically states anything about the difference between born or unborn. It's one of the pivotal reasons Roe is a faulty ruling.
And when did "breathing" air become the benchmark that determines any right to life? Ever heard of ventilators? You aren't suggesting that when someone finds themselves in need of one, they suddenly aren't persons anymore, are you? Because that would just be dumb.
Then point to the specific clause.The hell it doesn't. It specifies that those born are citizens.
