British politician compares preborn baby to tumor

One British politician wrote:

“The destruction of a full grown child is a revolting affair, whereas the abortion of an early foetus differs but little from the removal of a uterine tumor.”

Glanville Williams The Sanctity of Life and the Criminal Law (New York: Knopf, 1968) 230 – 232

A preborn baby has a heartbeat at 16-21 days and a developing brain by three weeks. Brain waves have been recorded as early as 43 days after conception.
