A fetus should not be considered a person until it grows a brain and nervous system. Up until that moment a woman should be free to decide what to do with the unborn fetus. After all we don't call an egg a chicken until it's hatched. The restrictions for abortion should be kept in place after the first trimester. Note that he people who are usually against abortion are the same who support military adventurism and thus their "respect for life" should be taken with a grain of salt.
