Why do people say a fetus is cells?

An EMBRYO is a mass of cells multiplying and dividing. After eight weeks, its actually a fetus, which is a SMALL BABY. Do people honestly think that a mom has cells kicking inside her that magically poof into a baby as they are pushed from her vagina? Wtf is wrong with people? Im not trying to go on some republican conservative rant against abortion... but honestly, a fetus is NOT cells, thats why its called a FETUS and not an EMBRYO.

Update:

I meant a mass of cells that have not yet begun to take form.

    We're all cells . . .

    Anyways, yeah, you're quite right- that argument isn't a very good one; it's actually on my list of my least favorite pro-choice arguments- #6: http://cand86.tumblr.com/post/14865629780/my-ten-l...

    Lmao damn people chill out. You all know what she meant. She was just pointing out the difference between an embryo and a fetus. Now for that menubee whatever the hell the name was....some people don't consider something alive unless it has a beating heart...or maybe till it takes its first breath. Everyone has a different opinion on life. You tell her to get her facts straight right? Do you see ANYWHERE in her question where she said she had an abortion? So how about you get your facts straight sugar before you go making random assumptions.

    We're all cells, from the moment we're conceived to the day we die. The pro-life argument is that some time during pregnancy a *poof* happens and the collection of cells magically becomes a human being with a magical soul.

    40 to 50% of all pregnancies are aborted naturally in the womb. That is, God decided that 40 to 50% of all precious babies should die, making Him the single biggest abortionist on the planet. If you genuinely believe that children are a Divine Gift from God and have a right to life, then stop bombing healthcare clinics and start bombing churches, because God terminates more pregnancies every year than every single doctor on the planet combined.

    You have obviously not taken biology...

    The second the sperm is released and it enters the egg, it is ALIVE...

    If you are asking this so you can feel better about u having or already had an abortion, you are disgusting, and should never be allowed to feel happy.

    Its killing people, yes when the sperm enters the person does have something living inside them, a fetus is living cells.

    A fetus is a baby who is not born yet.

    ... learn some facts then come back.

    It is developing cells.

    It has no awareness, it has no conscious, and it doesn't even have the ability to feel pain at the time most abortions take place. It is also connected to the mother physically, and can not breath, eat and digest food, or even create its own body without her. Which is why people will call it nothing but cells, as it really has no other property to it.

    Before 8 weeks it's a bundle of cells. Absolutely it's alive, absolutely it will become a baby.

    Then what do you think that we're made of? Pixie dust and godly will? Everyone is made out of cells regardless of size or age.

    Are you retarded? We're all cells regardless of what phase we are in. You are made of cells from the moment you were conceived and you will die as cells.
