"From the moment of conception, the unborn are individual organisms."

False. More lies from the anti-choice extremists.

It's true that it has its own unique DNA, distinct and separate from the mother's DNA. And it is growing, developing its own brain and circulatory system.

However, until it is born, it is completely dependent on the mother for everything it needs in the form of nourishment, oxygen, and waste disposal. Some would even say it is dependent on the parents (or equivalent) for survival until the parents kick it out of the house almost two decades later, and sometimes longer. :)

Is anything I typed above false?

Is your complaint with the phrase, "individual organisms"?
