There is nothing in the fourth amendment that could be construed to enable a woman to choose to have a fetus she conceived and is entrusted with by the laws of nature murdered.
I share your general opposition to abortion, but you are inviting the government in to make "personhood" a status granted by the government instead of something that is naturally conferred by existing. In an era of American citizens being labeled enemy combatants to avoid due process, I am not willing to give any politician this type of leverage. Under this amendment, further laws could be passed to impose conditions on the consideration of someone to be a person.
