Let me just start by saying that I am pro-choice on grounds that it protects women's health. One of the main rationales for legalizing abortions in the first place was that the illegality of it caused primitve methods to be used, causing sickness and death.

But I find it sort of contradictory that corporations are granted rights, like free speech etc, while embryos are not considered people.
The way I see it, personhood needs to be taken away from corporations, to reduce their impact on the way that this country and the way that many developing countries are run.

From Debate III:WALLACE to Mrs. Clinton: You have been quoted as saying that the fetus has no constitutional rights. You also voted against a ban on late-term, partial-birth abortions. Why?CLINTON: Because Roe v. Wade very clearly sets out that there can be regulations on abortion so long as the...

Many liberal talking heads always seem to be stressing that conservatives are waging a war on the rights of women, yet they don't seem to care as much when it doesn't fit their narrative. Conservative women get vial insults thrown at them and nothing happens. Michelle Bachman went on Jimmy...
