1 doctor agrees

In brief: Depends

This depends on who you ask.
Some have a personal opinion that life begins at conception, some at "reasonable expectation of viability", some at birth.Various states have their own legal definition of status.I don't expect the arguments to be resolved in my lifetime & i doubt there will ever be a consensus on the matter.
