What does 'abortion age' mean? Obviously a very early foetus doesn't have arms, legs a nervous system. But there is certainly a stage where a foetus does have these things. I'm not trying to start a debate on abortion here, but I think it's important to be accurate. I think I might also quibble with 'doesn't feel pain'; certainly the foetus could not feel wistful, or feel regret, but probably could feel pain I suspect. Again, depending on how late in the term.
