In the infamous Roe vs. Wade decision of 1973, the US Supreme Court concluded that the unborn child was not really human nor a person, therefore was not protected by the right to life assured “persons” by the US Constitution. The Supreme Court concluded that the unborn fetus was merely a part of the mother’s body, not a separate human individual. (This is reminiscent of the Dred Scott decision in which the Supreme Court concluded the black slaves were not really persons and therefore had no rights under the constitution.) Obviously, this reasoning flies in the face of the plain biblical teaching of the humanity and personhood of the unborn child.
