squarooticus proclaimed:
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.
The growing organism is a member of the human species, so I presume you're not questioning that. Biology has settled that one. "Child" has no scientific definition. Psychology has its own, sociology its own, public health its own, etc. I meant it in the colloquial sense. That employed in everyday usage - she's with child, carrying a child, is that your first child, etc.

I get that abortion defenders hate the word, even when used by one of their own:
