In order to have rights - that pertain to US laws - you have to be a citizen of the US.
To be a US citizen you either:
- have to be born in the US
- born to US citizens (if born abroad)
- pass a citizenship test.
Fetuses are the “pre-born.”
So, nope, fetuses do not have any rights in the US. :)

Just want to add that I mistrust most people for this exact reason. Some of the worst calculated, ongoing misogynist bullying in my life happened in ~women only~ spaces. Men just are the only group who truly benefit from all this crap so it’s like five times as baffling but there ya go. When “women only” is treated like a sanctuary from misogyny I laugh and go hang out alone by myself. With men I just know it’s coming no matter what.(via toomanyfeelings)
