comment Do biological facts determine when a human fetus is considered alive and human?
Might you have mistaken "... alive until 26 weeks of gestation" for "... a life until 26 weeks of gestation". The latter does at least have a meaningful interpretation; the former does not - a growing foetus can't be anything other than alive, but whether or not you consider it a life is an arbitrary distinction, and one subject to much philosophical pondering, all of which is off-topic here.

Note that the question is not whether the foetus is human (adjective), but whether it is a human (noun). It's an important difference, and takes us out of biology and into philosophy and ethics.
