comment When does personhood begin?
"That circularity is part of why it is such a challenge." No, circularity just means you haven't defined and used English words effectively. (Unless the challenge you referred to is understanding the OP's question...)

comment Can a person break an oath to G-d to save a life?
Why might you think he can or can't break the oath? Please edit to clarify.

comment When does personhood begin?
@CortAmmon That is completely circular. "The only requirement to being married is simply having passed the moment where the statements of the belief system allowing you to marry apply." (using your definition of "becoming a person" above)

comment When does personhood begin?
@CortAmmon Is the OP then asking at which point a human can be murdered? Or when a human can be married? Or own money? Or inherit? Or have familial relationships? Or become ritually impure upon death? One can ask about each of those and more. Is the OP asking for the borders of every one of those? That is likely close-able as Too Broad. Other than that last option I don't know how to reasonably interpret this post as open-able question for Mi Yodeya.

Where is your quote from? "News" is not a very precise source.

@Devoirele I don't see the word tefillin in that entire work. Clearly it is not the source of all your claims.
