Even if the Mother survives some thrama from a crime and the fetus dies, your theory of life not beginning until the first breath, wouldn't support our justice system. If a fetus dies in the commission of a crime, that is a murder charge. Our laws do consider a fetus a life.
The rights of the unborn raise a lot more questions than simple answers. Nobody has the right to kill a viable fetus. What exactly is the definition of viable fetus to our laws? Anything less than completly heathy is not viable? Only the Mother can consent to terminate pregnancy, nobody has the right to interfer with that process, viable or not. Other than that, at any trimester, killing a fetus should be considered a murder in the commission of a crime.
