Why or why not?  When does it become alive to you?

Yes, since there is a heartbeat.

Yes... It's not dead and has living cells.

When it has developed enough to have even a small chance of survival outside the womb.

In short- Yes. It's alive and a living organism since the day it was created aka the minute the mom-to-be conceived.

It's living immediately. It's made of living cells and has its own dna sequence, responds to its environment, ect.

I consider an amoeba alive, so why wouldn't I consider a fetus alive?
