Personhood of the Fetus Crew Wants to Butt into NC

Fresh off getting the stuffing kicked out of them in one of the most religiously conservative states in the union yesterday, the "fetus is a person" bunch is attempting to intervene in the American Civil Liberties Union/Planned Parenthood/Center for Reproductive Rights lawsuit against North Carolina's highly restrictive new abortion law.

"Intervention" as a legal term refers to a procedure by which a court can allow a non-party to join on-going litigation over the objections of, or without the permission of, the original litigants. The basic logic of "intervention" is that a judgment in the matter at hand would affect the rights of third parties, i.e., people who in this particular instance will not stop until American women are turned into involuntary breeders.
