After conception,there is noprocessthatoccursin thedevelopmentof theembryothat showsthechangein theembryofrom not becominghumanto becominghuman.Theunbornchildis in thestageof humanlife,justlike otherstageslike beinga teenager,middleageandsoon. Pro-choice movementsdonot viewabortionas a murderforthereasonthattheythinktheaborted embryois justa massof tissue.Takingunbornbaby’slifeis not differentfrom takinga person’slifeat theotherlifestageshenceabortionshould betreatedas murderby thelaw(Wainer and Jo 45).
