The mother's blood never enters the child's body. Her blood is blocked by the placental Barrier. Likewise, the child's blood never enters the mother's system (blocked by the same barrier.)
In as much as a placenta connects the child to the mother, it also divides the two. But no-one ever considers that fact because it doesn't fit your desired outcome.

On a side note, what does the fetus do in terms of blood until its own heart develops? I'm still a little busy so if someone could enlighten me on this that'd be super. links please.

The heart developes
The embryonic heart starts beating 22 days after conception, or about five weeks after the last menstrual period, which by convention we call the fifth week of pregnancy. The heart at this stage is too small to hear, even with amplification, but it can sometimes be seen as a flickering in the chest if an ultrasound is done as early as four weeks after conception.

You state your opinion as though it is a demonstrated fact. I'm glad things turned out alright, but to demand that she somehow had a "right" to life is a serious misunderstanding of what "rights" actually are. The problem is that you're responding purely emotionally, not rationally. You're not presenting a case for your argument, you're just insisting that you're right and nothing anyone says will convince you otherwise. In very real terms, we're all talking to a fanatic who has no credible case, just a lot of emotionally-charged assertions.Originally Posted by Chuz Life
And you wonder why most are not impressed?
You can ignore,dismiss, protest, ridicule all you want.
But in doing so, you can not change my opinions... unless you first address the facts that I base my opinions upon.
That's just how we roll round these parts.
