A fetus is a developing human being. So is a toddler. Your fingernails are not.<quoted text>
ALL of my cells are living, human, and developing. Should I be prevented from scraping any off on the grounds I'm 'taking human life' or something?
They're a "baby" if they've been born. In the womb they're a fetus whether you want one or not.
If you make aboriton illegal, you force women to either bear an unwanted child or obtain an illegal abortion. No strawman at all.
Usage of the term "fetus" doesn't dehumanize anything as you wish it would; it's not a fetal pig or something that becomes human once it leaves the womb.
