New Ultrasound Technology Sparks Abortion Debate: "But social policy lecturer Ellie Lee says the new ultrasound images are misleading. Ms. Lee, at the University of Kent, says the fetus movements are just reflexes, and do not indicate any thought or emotions.
'Unfortunately the way it's going is that they are very much being presented as images, which suggest to us that a fetus from a very early stage of development is basically just like a little tiny person,' she says. 'It's been given personhood and it's communicating the sense that it has personality, which I think is simply scientifically incorrect.' "

Oh dear. I hope that a demonstrable personality is not all that's between us and state-sanctioned murder. If so I know many post-natal individuals who are at risk.
