when they can live outside the body without medical assistance

So now we have a few more options:

When it looks like a fetus?
When it has brain activity (per JGII, ~15 weeks)?
When it can feel pain?
When it can survive outside the womb without medical assistance?
When it starts to come out of the womb?
When the umbilical cord is cut?

Where do you draw the line???

At the same time, I am also quite disturbed by pro-abortion zealots (PC's) who oppose prosecuting someone who assaults a pregnant woman and kills the fetus.

And funny as it is, those who hold this view typically also want to prosecute those who kill fish, because the fish feel pain.
