“For the most part, people already act as though the unborn child is a human being. Generally, if a woman decides to “have her baby”, she speaks of the child in her womb as “my baby”; she tries to eat well; she saves the ultrasound picture of her child and shows it to friends; and so on. Indeed, it is natural and even easy to regard the child in the womb as a member of the human community. The one exception to this general practice is abortion, in which the unborn child is treated as a non-entity and a mistake: the fact of its existence is denied, as though it could be taken back or revoked.
Pro-lifers simply call attention to this self-deception, this inconsistency, and urge that even unborn children who are unwanted and slated for destruction be regarded as having the same intrinsic dignity and value as the wanted child.”

My wife laughs at me but, I talk to my unborn child about the process of his or her development.
