Pro-choice radio commentator Leonard Peikoff:

“During the first trimester [the embryo] is a mass of relatively undifferentiated cells that exist as part of a woman’s body. . . . It is not an independently existing, biologically formed organism, let alone a person….That which lives within the body of another can claim no right against its host. Rights belong only to individuals, . . . not to parts of an individual.”

Mary E. Williams. ed. Abortion: Opposing Viewpoints (San Diego, California: Greenhaven Press, 2002)  16

The first trimester child above has every organ he will ever develop including a brain, beating heart, lungs, stomach, and liver. And , if she were a girl, ovaries and a uterus of her own. See here.
