That's true.

But, most Americans didn't see anything wrong with slavery at the founding of this nation. Most saw it like most pro-choice people see abortion - "a necessary evil." It's going to take some serious poll-changing before we can get legislation like this passed. Personhood legislation using the 14th amendment will have to be refined and clarified before being attempted though. Mississippi voters rejected such language 2-1 because there were fess that such vague language would criminalize miscarriages and invitro fertilization. I also believe abortion should remain an option throughout the entire pregnancy if the mother's health is at risk. This personhood stuff I don't think addresses that.
