Not looking for a GD just for facts. In looking at some of the GD abortion discussions it occurred to that I really don’t have a good handle on current law in this area. With this in mind I wanted to update myself as to the specifics of the current legal status of fetuses.
In this context I want to know if there is a legal precedent or existing code in the US that gives a fetus any part of the bundle of rights a citizen would have while it is still a fetus, or is the fetus currently considered a non-person/non-citizen? What is the lcurrent legal status (or non-status) of fetus in the US?
