Peter Heck argues “yes.”

One point that encourages him:

So what convinces me that we are arriving at our most recent point of deliverance?  Several factors do.  First, we are finally beginning to address the real issue of whether the infant in the womb is human or not.  This has always been the only question that matters.

During oral arguments in the 1973 landmark case of Roe v. Wade, Justice Potter Stewart demonstrated as much.  He asked Attorney Sarah Weddington who was arguing for abortion rights, “If it were established that an unborn fetus is a person, you would have an almost impossible case here, would you not?”  Weddington audibly laughed as she was forced to acknowledge, “I would have a very difficult case.”  Stewart pushed further by positing, “This would be the equivalent to after the child was born…if the mother thought it bothered her health having the child around, she could have it killed.  Isn’t that correct?”  Weddington sheepishly granted, “That’s correct.”

This shocking exchange is what prompted the author of the seminal Roe ruling, Harry Blackmun, to write in the majority opinion, “[If the] suggestion of personhood is established, the case, of course, collapses, for the fetus’ right to life is then guaranteed specifically by the [14th] Amendment.”
