"The term infant is typically applied to young children between the ages of 1 month and 12 months; however, definitions may vary between birth and 3 years of age. A newborn is an infant who is only hours, days, or up to a few weeks old. In medical contexts, newborn or neonate (from Latin, neonatus, newborn) refers to an infant in the first 28 days after birth; the term applies to premature infants, postmature infants, and full term infants. Before birth, the term fetus is used."
Does anyone really think about how silly it really is to postulate that any problems you have in life, any defects you may have been born with are all because of something you supposedly did in a previous life? To make matters worse no one even remembers this so-called "crime" either.
I even read somewhere where child abuse was rationalized with the same mindset....who learns anything from aborting their infant? The infant sure won't for obvious reasons and I doubt the parents walk away with anything except that they did what they felt they needed to do..end of story.
Whatever function abortion serves, it certainly hasn't been to teach anyone anything.
