But it’s not a child!

The premise of virtually all pro-abortion arguments is that the little one in the womb isn’t a human being. We hear: “But it’s not a child! We are talking about a non-[insert feat an 8 week old human being can’t perform] clump of cells!”. So, let’s settle this once and for all.
It’s not a child! Or is it?
Are pro-lifers saying that the unborn is a three year old child or a ten year old? Of course not! We use the terms child, unborn child or child in the womb because of the mother/child relationship. If you are a parent, whether your child is growing in utero, a fifth grader or a College student, he/she is your progeny; your offspring, your descendant, the flesh of your flesh. We are talking about *your child* regardless of age, location or ability.
