“The term ‘person,’ used in the fifth amendment, is broad enough to include any and every human being within the  jurisdiction of the republic.”

“If this suggestion of personhood is established, the [abortionist] case, of course, collapses, for the fetus’ right to life would then be guaranteed by the 14th Amendment.”
