Neonatalist On the Difference Between a “Fetus” and “Baby”

From an article by a doctor (Hanes Swingle) who takes care of women with high risk pregnancies:

“As a neonatalist who has cared for numerous spontaneously aborted and a few intentionally aborted fetuses in the past 20 years, I now realize that the difference between a fetus and a premature infant is a social distinction, not a biological and. If it is wanted, it is a baby: it is not wanted, it is a fetus.”
