…because we all agree that 2 weeks after birth a child is human. Two weeks before natural birth there is no consensus. From the instant an egg is fertilized it is no longer an it but a he or she, having either two X chromosomes or an X and a Y chromosome. By eighteen days the child has his/her own heartbeat pumping blood that is frequently not even the same blood type as the mother. For these reasons I believe that children deserve the full protection of the law from the point of conception. I would welcome another perspective, but no one ever seems willing to offer one.
