If children born abroad out-of-wedlock have no birthright citizenship & they're trying to undermine /jus soli/ too, what does that mean for children born out-of-wedlock to mothers who were forced to carry children to term?
Are they stateless? Will they be considered US persons?
Will they still consider fetuses who aren't US persons for the purpose of citizenship when born to be persons for the purposes of prohibiting abortion?

This is a very concerning development.
This is going to sound out there, but let's write a treatment for a short dystopian sci-fi novella:

Let's say there are 250,000 stateless children born each year, children that don't have the rights of their parents, children who may be given up for adoption domestically...
What laws would apply to stateless children?

How would such children be tracked to ensure their health and well-being?

What barriers are there for stateless children to be adopted by parents in other nations?
What barriers would prevent the adoption of trafficked stateless children to whom no nation bears responsibility into child sex trafficking rings, or into slavery?
With xenophobia on the rise, what nations would allow these children to become citizens?

Perhaps they would be rejected from all earthly nations, and when they are offered the opportunity to become full-fledged citizens of a new world - a nation full of promise on Ross 128b...
And along with the citizens of nations displaced by climate change, they embark on an 11 light-year voyage to the newly terran-ized planet where plentiful food and ample housing awaits...
only to find once they've arrived, that there are no golden cities on the hills, but that they are the first arrivals; they are the construction crew, the farmers, the miners...

the outcasts from this earth becoming the slaves on earth v2.0
only to find once they've arrived, that there are no golden cities on the hills, but that they are the first arrivals;
the outcasts from this earth becoming the slaves on the next earth, preparing the way for those of means to escape a degraded planet along with all the spoils
These "Planetary princes," as they may believe themselves to be, accompanied by the spoils extracted from Earth v1.0, recreate society on model of plantations and feudalism unchecked by an existing system of laws...
endangering the very survival of these people upon revolt, leaving any notions of these stateless children finally enjoying equality light years behind.
Now, this is just an idea for a novella, mind you... I have no evidence that anyone has plans to make this happen...
but you know what? With the inflection point for climate change approaching , and rapid R&D in commercial space travel funded by Musk, Branson, Bezos, et al., nothing should be considered out of the realm of possibility.
And anything that may facilitate the birth or recruitment of large numbers of stateless persons, non-citizens who have neither allegiance to nor protections from an established state, should be looked at with extreme scrutiny.
Especially if it's something that Jeffrey Epstein has any interest in.
