Are the unborn a “class” of people?

I’ll make this brief. There’s just one video I wish to share, and since the embed options are allowed on said video, I will put it in this blog post.

I have recently commented on THIS Vermont Voter referendum, Proposition 5, (in my last blog post, albeit by many indirect means).

I share a few things in direct comment.

Since I am just blown away by the intellectual “incongruity” of Proposition 5, I will comment on one detail which seems rather… incongruous.

Reading some of the words which Proposition 5 would add to our constitution, we see the claim that “an individual’s right to personal reproductive autonomy is central to the liberty and dignity to determine one’s own life course…” By other language surrounding this claim we known that “reproductive autonomy” is meant to embody a right to elective abortion at any moment of pregnancy.

And so the incongruity appears when reading, in the same Proposition, “This amendment would reassert the principles of equality and personal liberty reflected in Articles 1 and 7 [of the Vermont Constitution] and ensure that government does not create or perpetuate the legal, social, or economic inferiority of any class of people.”

The incongruity is a blatant hypocrisy. Unless, that is, some rational, congruous reason could be given… for why a human being, in utero, should not be “classified” as… a person.
