A "fetus," or a "complete, separate, unique and irreplaceable human being"?

A woman is arguing that doctors must inform women inquiring about abortions that the fetus or embryo they are carrying is "a complete, separate, unique and irreplaceable human being" and that the "abortion did not prevent a human being from coming into existence but actually killed an existing human being."

The trial court said: "A doctor cannot be found negligent for failing to present as medical fact the point of view of one faction in this grave ongoing national debate," she wrote. But last year, a New Jersey appeals court reversed, arguing that Acuna could go to a jury to argue over what medical information a doctor has to disclose when advising a patient about ending a pregnancy.
