With all the legislative bills out concerning Personhood I thought of this question. If as the G.O.P. claims that the moment of conception the fertilized egg has the full rights of a living human being then is the citizenship of that fertilized egg also determined at that same time of conception????? If a woman who is not a citizen of the United States concieves on United States soil is that fertilized egg immediately a U.S. Citizen???? If this is in fact correct then Mexican (as an example only) women can "honeymoon" here and then claim citizenship for that fertilized egg with full rights of a U.S. Citizen. Talk about anchor babies, now you have anchor eggs. What if the egg was fertilized off the U.S. coast in U.S. waters? Air Space? Would the Supreme Court have to decide if that fertilized egg was a legal citizen of the U.S. if the woman could prove that the egg was fertilized in the U.S.? And would the U.S. be unable to deport that fertilized egg CITIZEN because it now has full human rights and although the wording of citizenship states "born in the U.S. that was before Personhood became law???? Answers anyone????
