The Alabama case of Amanda Kimbrough recently made headlines. Kimbrough admitted to smoking crystal meth three days before her baby, Timmy, was delivered at 25 weeks.

Nothing magical, mystical, or metaphysical happens at birth. We are the same person on both sides of the cervix. Driving a needle filled with poison into our chest, plucking our limbs from our torso, or sucking us through a high-powered vacuum aspirator while in the womb is the same as doing these things to us while outside the womb.
We are human beings and we always have been since the moment of our conception.
