Legal entities are persons or non-human entities that are treated as individuals for certain legal purposes. This means they can sue and be sued, own property, and enter into contracts. The Fourteenth Amendment was originally intended to protect people from discrimination and harm from other people, but it has since been extended to safeguard all human beings, including those yet to be born. The Supreme Court has the power to define an individual as any human being, both born and unborn.
Scientific evidence, historical records, and tradition all point to the fact that unborn human beings are persons and human beings from the moment of conception. This supports the interpretation that the unborn meet the definition of a person under the Fourteenth Amendment. The legal test used to extend constitutional personality to companies, which are artificial persons under the law, is more than fulfilled by the unborn. This demonstrates that they deserve the status of a constitutional person.
If the Constitution continues to be interpreted as perpetuating a discriminatory legal system of separation and inequality for unborn human beings, there can be no rule of law. The Supreme Court can annul Roe v. Wade on grounds of equal protection. This would not bring the issue of abortion back to the states; instead, the Fourteenth Amendment would prohibit abortion in all states.
