attempting to hijack Aristotle's definition of humanity to make your case for pre-third trimester abortion is weak, there are many fully grown humans who are incapable of rational thought, does this mean they are not human? Humans are essentially awareness, the greatest scientists of our times truly have very little knowledge regarding consciousness, they have NO IDEA when conscious awareness begins. This awareness is our very essence and is the core of our being, prior to the body and development of ego functionality. It has been clearly demonstrated through ultrasound technology during abortions that a child understands that the suction probe is a threat and attempt to move away from it and fight against it.

I'm speaking of the capability of rationality, not its perfect execution. If a worm moves away from a probe does that make it human, too? Few would agree.
