And yes, one only has to look at the law to see that the mother's intention alone can grant personhood to the fetus. Otherwise, there would be no provision to charge an assailant with murder for a fetus being murdered along with the mother as in the Peterson case. The intent can grant personhood to the fetus but it is not necessary for that personhood if the fetus is carried to a stage of development that warrants personhood to be granted. Further, once granted, personhood can never be stripped of a person, so any egregious argument that one such as Schaivo wasn't a person is just ignorant and a pathetic grasp at straws.
And I still hold, now from past experience and not just reading the tone and direction the thread took from the onset, that the intention is not to have a frank discussion about a disparity in a belief, but a very ugly attempt at both maligning a position/group AND a transparent grasp at forcing others to agree with him. There is a reason this person is the ONLY person on my ignore list.
