A fetus is not a human being. A fetus cannot drive, work, or drink milk. Abortion was practiced by some ancient societies and in some third World countries. A pregnant woman can make a fetus stillfborn by taking drugs or by overworking for example. Infanticide was sometimes practiced too both in the past and even in the present. infanticide is the killing of a human being.
"Infanticide is the act of deliberately causing the death of a very young child (under 1 year old). In the past, and in many societies, it was a widespread practice, permitted by different cultures around the world. Nowadays, it is considered to be an unethical crime; however, it is still performed."
In fact, many conservatives are trying to commit infanticide by denying food stamps to poor people, so they cannot feed their infants, and by denying health care to infants if their parents cannot afford to see a doctor. Allowing an infant to die because it has no medical insurance is killing of a human being, and conservatives supports it wholeheartedly.
