If a pregnant woman is murdered in California and the baby also dies within her womb, there would be a trial for two murders. But, ironically, a woman can walk into an abortion facility in California and have her baby legally killed. Isn't that a contradiction?
Apparently, a baby in the womb is a baby if it's wanted. If the baby isn't wanted, then today's society says it is just tissue and can be disposed of like trash.
Think about it. When a woman is pregnant, people ask, "When is your baby due," or, "Is your baby a boy or a girl?" They don't ask, "When is your tissue due," or "Is your tissue a boy or a girl?" Tissue doesn't grow human arms, legs, eyes, nose and ears.
No one has to be a doctor to know that, at conception, essentially, a baby begins the 40-week process to develop. Even after a baby is born, it is not yet fully developed.
Does that make the newborn baby any less a human being compared to a full grown adult?
There's no denying that once a woman becomes pregnant and if the process is not interfered with, the end result will be a human baby. That baby's own DNA is present at conception and, at 18 weeks of age, the baby's fingerprints are already formed. That proves that there is an individual human identity and not the woman's own body tissue.
