Do you think scientific advances like these might eventually lead to redefining when life begins in the future?

I think as technology and medical developments discover more and more truly wonderful and AMAZING things that are going on from the moment of conception to delivery~we will scientifically learn that life truly does begin earlier than the law defines...

YOSHI: As to when life begins, that will ALWAYS be a personal opinion... believe it begins at birth...
So then Yoshi, why is there a, "Big diff between 30 weeks and 12"... ?????? And Legally, it isn't a personal opinion... Otherwise later term abortions wouldn't be such a 'hot' topic politically and legally. There are laws in place to define when life begins to better set the abortion parameters. So, it is possible that scientific research could someday change laws.

I know everyone is entitled to their opinion but how in the world you can feel your baby kicking and moving, SEE it's picture on a 4D u/s machine with all it's features plain to see, and STILL think it's not a life is beyond me. I can understand (not agree with, but understand) how you can say the cells splitting or while it still can't SURVIVE out side the womb.....but saying it's not a life until it passes out of your body is very very strange to me! (con't)
