When we look at the issue of abortion, I ask everyone to be objective.
That means, try not to let emotions or religious dogma influence our judgment.
Now, start with the question: What is a fetus? Not to be confused with a fertilized egg, zygote, or embryo, a fetus is defined to be such around 9 weeks of age in the womb. To describe it as merely tissue, although true, is not precise enough. If we were to accept such a broad definition, then I would be nothing more than tissue myself writing this letter. A fetus has different organs (heart, brain, skin, etc.), each of which is composed of specialized tissue.
