I’m a Person

“If this suggestion of personhood is established, the appellant’s case, of course, collapses, for the fetus’ right to life would then be guaranteed specifically by the 14th Amendment.”
~Justice Harry Blackmun, Roe v. Wade

My sex was settled from the start,
My DNA is mine alone,
I bleed if cut, God forms my bones,
My breathing tubes and neural parts;

Look how I’m formed, if you would:
With arms and legs, a heart that beats,
Intestines, brain, nose, mouth and ears–
I’m small and I have personhood.

~Day Williams

Person, n., a living human
