Twins born two months apart

Twin boys born nearly 2 months apart

Question for the vehemently prochoice: Why was the first twin human as soon as he was born, when his twin brother, still in-utero, was a non-person fit to be aborted at his mother's request? Or should there have been open season on Twin #1 while his brother continued to gestate? Do they both become human at the same time? What's the huge, morally significant difference between the two?

Great story, Granny! Multiple births are fascinating - my husband is an identical twin. More importantly, the humanity of each child is brilliantly displayed in this story of their survival. Thanks for picking it up!
