Miss. High Court Says Fetus is a Person for Wrongful Death Claims

Although somewhat philosophically disingenuous (see quotes from Justice Smith) it's a good decision that sets useful precedence.

Check out, though, this vile quote from an attorney with the ACLU, who was "troubled" by the ruling:

"Anytime the fetus is recognizable as a person it chips away at the foundation of Roe."

Replace "fetus" with "Black African" and "Roe" with "Dred Scott", and you got yourself an honest to goodness supporter of human slavery.
