If Alabama Man counts as a person, might as well include pets too.

If eggs are people, do eggs that were frozen for 18 years get to vote? Are they counted as dependents? Do they qualify for SS as they can not work?

Kind of strange considering they don't have a face, brain, legs, arms, body, or anything else that actual people have.

One can be 18 and not legally an adult. Yes, they're dependents, they cost. They can work, thaw them.

Is Alabama going to have monthly inspections of women to ensure the rights of eggs and fetuses are not being abused?

Did they manage to sneak "Black people are people" into their Constitution too? Or just fertilized eggs?

:lol: No, only the black eggs. Once born, they go back to, well...if Alabama had its way, slaves.

Amputees aren't people?

After thawing however they will need a place to incubate before they can work. Unless they go into research, in which case do they get paid min wage?

Amputees have a brain, face, body, and usually a few limbs.

Amputees 1
Eggs 0

So if an ape or someone on bath salts eats someone's face, they're not a person?

Free association.

This thread is funny and sad at the same time.

To be fair the same can be said about corporations.

That inheritance you thought you only had to share with your grabby brother .... now you have to share it with all the embryos your parents have in storage at the fertility clinic.

What a bunch of nutters. Not surprising when you see who got into the WH.

With such disrespect of their civil rights, it's amazing any women choose to live in the state...but again...willful ignorance.

No min wage. They work on tips.

A fertilized egg being considered a person, is no more ridiculous than someone believing a late term abortion isn't murdering a child.

The law doesn't say that eggs are humans. It's fertilised eggs. A lot of people in this thread can't read and they think they are so smart and edgy by mocking this law.

No one, ever, in this forum has been for aborting a healthy fetus approaching full term.
