I have to admit that I am a bit confused on a pro-choice argument. There are many who say that it is just a fetus, and not a baby so they are not killing anything. However, at 5 wks the heart starts beating (http://www.babycenter.com/6_your-pregnancy-5-weeks_1094.bc). So, if the definition of being dead is when the heart stops beating, and the heart is beating at 5 wks, isn't any abortion performed after that point killing a life?
Also, many of you consider yourselves to be mothers when the baby comes out, however I know of at least two people personally who felt very connected to the growing life inside them and were devastated by miscarriages. So I also don't understand how people can say motherhood starts when it leaves the birth canal, when so many are connected to it prior to that.
Note- I am not arguing for or against pro-choice, I just fail to understand the logic.
