Baby Gloria was born at 26 weeks (second trimester). Some would say she "came into the world" then but they are wrong. That was 26 weeks earlier, when she was conceived and (scientifically speaking) became a human being (theologically speaking) in the image and likeness of God.

How can people argue for a mother's imagined "right" to have a child like this killed, by authorizing someone to reach into the womb with forceps to crush her skull, dismember her, and pull her out piece by piece? That's not choice, it's murder.
