It' not in the dictionary so I assume you are trying to make something up that you think is in the Constitution. Well, it isn't. They have the same rights you do. In fact, if you kick a pregnant woman and the baby dies, you can be charged with murder. So, even the law (Congress and States) have decided long ago the unborn child is a person with the right to live. It's obviously "settled law."

    The unborn has no right to live, legally. And it is settled law. The term 'personhood' is something used here to indicated the legal status of "persons" under the law:

    1 U.S. Code SS 8 - “Person”, “human being”, “child”, and “individual” as including born-alive infant | U.S. Code | US Law | LII / Legal Information Institute

    (a) In determining the meaning of any Act of Congress, or of any ruling, regulation, or interpretation of the various administrative bureaus and agencies of the United States, the words “person”, “human being”, “child”, and “individual”, shall include every infant member of the species homo sapiens who is born alive at any stage of development.

    (b) As used in this section, the term “born alive”, with respect to a member of the species homo sapiens, means the complete expulsion or extraction from his or her mother of that member, at any stage of development, who after such expulsion or extraction breathes or has a beating heart, pulsation of the umbilical cord, or definite movement of voluntary muscles, regardless of whether the umbilical cord has been cut, and regardless of whether the expulsion or extraction occurs as a result of natural or induced labor, cesarean section, or induced abortion.

    It's quite clear these entities do not have the same rights I have, and you know it. You're being wilfully obtuse and you know that.

    An unborn fetus is not a person and it has no rights.
