    I Believe that a Person begins life at the moment of an inspiration to...to be with another in an intimate situation...
    That a Person is a vulnerable sigh, a whiff of a fashionable fragrance...
    A twinkling of an eye,
    A sacred thought of holding hands.
    This, and this alone, is a Person.
    To stop an inspired thought is murder.

    Oh, eat your chorizo, Cesar.
    It's a Personhood Conference, to decide what a person is.
    Or might be.
    Or might become.
    This is a very serious matter, don't you see.
