There is nothing whatsoever in the Constitution which enumerates rights for, or defines entities such as, corporations.

Now, unless there is a defacto non-human entity which speaks for corporations and which would not otherwise have the freedom to express itself, one could twist logic to require rights of speech for that entity. Otherwise, the individuals who comprise corporations ALREADY HAVE FREEDOMS OF SPEECH as covered in the First Amendment of the Bill of Rights.

I thought it was hilarious that before knowing about the ACTIVIST conservative judges' ruling, you too thought that the notion was questionable:

There is no need, corporations (and unions) are made up of people, and it is clear as day in the first amendment that the government CAN NOT limit their free speech rights. No need to be like a liberal activist judge and just make it up, it's all right there.

Since people already have rights to speech, there was no need to equate speech with money, or people with corporations. But that was exactly what the ACTIVIST judges did. My mistake for misreading your response as a common sensible and logical understanding that corporations, as separate entities, don't have the need or right to free (unlimited) speech (money).

In any case, I would guess amending away corporate personhood would be a very popular stand for any pol so inclined to make the case.

When I'm on duty at Planned Parenthood, there is usually a picketer out front carrying a 'the pill kills' sign.
