As it's dependent on another independent being, this is untrue.It's an independent biological entity that is of the human species.
Biologically untrue.It's a human life separate from the life of the mother (or father). It's an individual life.
This goes in contradiction with any claim of it being "independent".Just so that we are being factual, the fetus does process food on its own. It's provided with nutrients, even at the level of a zygote the cell performs its own metabolism. I also don't see why breathing air is relevant either. It's in an airless environment while the organs required to breathe air are developing.
Funny you didn't touch communicate. Why?By all rational an biological accounts the ZEF is a human life at every stage. That's just fact. Now, if we want to get to subjective definitions of "person-hood" and somehow use that to rationalize why it's acceptable to kill a human life we could go there.

It's an individual. It's independent in the fact that it is its own human life and body. It's not the woman's body.As it's dependent on another independent being, this is untrue.
Please go on ahead and prove to me, using biology, why a ZEF is not an individual human organism and why it isn't is an individual human life.Biologically untrue.
You were shown to be wrong. Fetal body's and the embryo have their own cell metabolism. They are their own bodies.This goes in contradiction with any claim of it being "independent".
I'll break it down. A living sperm contains the haploid genetic material from a father, the living egg the haploid genetic material from the mother. When they fuse, a diploid living embryo is created that has a human genome unique for a new human life. Human sperm + human egg fuse to = human embryo containing a human genome that is unique to that individual human life. It's obviously a living organism, and it belongs to the human species as a human life in the first stages. This is fact. To claim that the ZEF is not a human life is completely dishonest and biologically incorrect.Funny you didn't touch communicate. Why?

"Planned Parenthood condemns any physician who does not follow the law or endangers a woman's or a child's health, but we don't believe that politicians should be the ones who decide what constitutes the best, medically appropriate treatment in any given situation,"
When one of lawmakers asked her what Planned Parenthood's position would be if a baby is born as a result of a botched abortion.
She said "We believe that any decision that's made should be left up to the woman, her family and the physician,"
That does NOT mean the mom can kill the baby... It only means the mother,and her family along with the doctor can decide if extraordinary measures should be done to save the baby's life.
Since the partial birth abortion ban there will never be a baby that will survive a legal abortion since the fetus is dead and in pieces before it is removed from the womb.
Even so the Born Alive law is still on the books.
Born-Alive Infants Protection Act - Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaThe Born-Alive Infants Protection Act of 2002 ("BAIPA" Pub.L. 107–207, 116 Stat. 926, enacted August 5, 2002, 1 U.S.C. § 8) is an Act of Congress. It extends legal protection to an infant born alive after a failed attempt at induced abortion. It was signed by President George W. Bush, a Republican.
Apparently either the Florida legislators did not know about the 'Born Alive" act or they did not know that because of the partial birth abortion ban there would be no infant to save after a legal abortion , or they were just hoping to get in the news so pro life people would vote for them the next time they ran for office.
Planned Parenthood cilinics do NOT perform late term abortions in Florida or any other state.
How The Right Wing Manufactured A Fake Controversy Over Planned Parenthood's 'Infanticide' | ThinkProgressPerhaps the ultimate irony of the right-wing’s imagined controversy is that —
even in states where it’s not against the law to perform late-term induced abortions — Planned Parenthood clinics don’t provide that type of service. Many Planned Parenthood affiliates only perform abortions in the first trimester of pregnancy, when women can either take a pill or have a less-invasive surgical procedure.
Before viability the embryo or early fetus is completely dependent on the pregnant woman.
It is not only dependent on the woman but it will not survive apart from the woman ...it cannot become a separate entity because it is the woman's life functions not its own that allows it to continue to delvelope toward viability.
It is using her life's forces and her body.
Until it becomes viable it cannot survive outside her body.
If she dies it will not survive even if doctors quickly remove it and give it artificial aid.
A non viable fetus is not separate entity with its own life it cannot live apart from her.
It depends completely on the bio mom.
Once a fetus is viable if the pregnant woman dies doctors can quickly remove the viable infant and it has a good chance of living even without the bio mom.
A nurse, a father, a grandparent, an adoptive parent , or another care taker can care for and fed the infant.
