Let's look at the reasoning again from a purely scientific factual basis:

What species does a human fetus belong to? Homo sapiens aka human

Is it a whole organism? Yes

Is it alive? Yes

Ergo, it is human life.

Hmmm... let's try that one on me.

What species do I belong to? Homo sapiens aka human

Am I a whole organism? No, my appendix has been removed

Am I alive? Yes

Ergo... not human. Bummer.
