It's just as obvious that 'life' is not a black and white term.
There a millions of unicellular organisms that are universally understood to be "life." Sure things get a little dicey and debated around crystals, viruses, prions, etc but there's little doubt or debate from the perspective of embryologists and geneticists regarding the starting point of the development of human life.
Not all life has the same value. I'm happy to put a dividing line somewhere during the first or second trimester, just as I'm happy to use antibiotics against bacteria, electrocute flies, or exterminate all mosquitoes, all uncontestably "life".

Specifically, you have not shown a fetus in the contested stage to be a "human child". Define "human child" precisely enough and maybe we'll get to the bottom of this.
