A Foetus Feels Pain During an Abortion Procedure
Once the spinal reflex is developed at eight weeks, a foetus can feel pain.
A fetus becomes a person at conception
Murdering a person is a crime. There is no difference between killing a fetus in the womb and killing a child. Both are people and have a right to life. By taking away their life, you are committing murder. At the moment of conception, a unique genetic identity is created. This genetic identity will accompany the fetus throughout its life. Aborting a child erases this code. It is clear, therefore, that aborting a child is tantamount to murder.
A fetus is not a person. It is a fetus. It is an extension of the mother. It is entirely dependent on the mother. It is connected to her via the umbilical cord. It cannot live outside the womb or independently of its mother. Therefore, it is not a human or a person. It is a part of the mother. Aborting it is no more murder than a woman having a mole removed or getting a haircut.

[Rejecting P1] A foetus is not a person at conception. It becomes a person later. [Rejecting P3] Killing a foetus is not always wrong. When it saves the mother's life it is necessary.
