Recent improvements in ultrasound technology and advancements in scientific knowledge of fetal development have caused a shift in American attitudes toward preborn life. Increasingly, evidence shows that a growing preborn child possesses many of the physical and physiological characteristics that will be present at birth and into adulthood.
