Something dead and something not yet born are two different states of a existance. Shit is a pointless debate. Its not brain dead, it has no brain, no heart, no lungs or kidneys stop caping for fertilized eggs that can dissipate on their own.
so if it is not yet born means it's not alive?
so basically all the way up until the umbilical cord is cut you can just "abort" it because it is not yet born huh..
