Division among pro-lifers

The media continues to highlight the division among the pro-life community in Ohio. There's a lot we disagree upon - whether child-killing in cases of rape and incest are justifiable compromises to try to save some lives, whether an abortion is ever necessary and acceptable to improve a mother's health, whether hormonal contraception is ethical or not, whether states have an obligation to submit to the Supreme Court or to resist, whether Roe v. Wade should be overturned or ignored, etc.

However, there are some things on which we agree - the Personhood Amendment IS everything upon which we agree! 1. Human life begins at conception. 2. Every human being is a "person" not "property". 3. Every person should be equally protected in the eyes of state law. 4. The Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade decision is immoral and unconstitutional, and 5. Ohio should protect the preborn within Ohio's lawful and constitutional jurisdiction. Can we agree on that?
