Neuroscience is the same thing. All it takes is one.
what is this religion you speak of?
I pity you.
Consciousness is beyond any current measure
and is still being debates to this day.
I think that you're forgetting to think about the other life involved...or the partner, whose DNA half of that fetus consists of, and wouldn't exist without. Where are the rights of those two people in this equation

So a body with no measurable brain waves (the one requirement to call someone dead for sure) could still be conscious? Really?

We know consciousness arises from the brain. We know a fetus doesn't start with a fully formed brain. We know that process takes time in the womb. Denying that most basic of factual observation would be absurd. We don't need to even have a deeper discussion of the neuroscience behind it if you're in denial about that.
