We have moved well past the stage of considering an unborn child a mass of cells. This has been proven scientifically untrue.
At the very least, the death of an unborn baby is the killing of the living cells in that mass. But, we now know that those cells contain life.
Not just life as individual cells connecting and working toward humanity, but the very makeup that is the person in that stage of their development. Those cells are doing something, and the something that they are doing is creating a human being. Not a potential something, but a determined someone.
Those cells contain that person’s DNA. This is the proof that the mass of cells argument is dead. So, when we talk about surgically removing that clump or mass, we are talking about removing arms and legs and a head and torso. Inside that torso is a heart, forming or formed.
But, it may be illegal very soon in the state of Ohio to remove that heart.

Lawmakers in Ohio have passed a bill banning abortions when a heartbeat is detected, sending the legislation to the desk of Gov. John Kasich for signing.
The Unborn Heartbeat Protection Act was approved by the Senate 21-10 on Tuesday, being attached as an amendment to a child abuse bill. It then passed the House 56-39.
“A person who intends to perform an abortion on a pregnant woman shall determine if there is the presence of a fetal heartbeat of the unborn human individual that the pregnant woman is carrying according to standard medical practice,” the Act reads in part.
Unfortunately, this bill does contain exemptions, but it is a start.
