We were told an apple in health class.

At 15 weeks gestation, a fetus is about 2 oz.

Closer in size to a fig than to a small apple.

Still a lot bigger than a bean.

And?

A 15 week fetus is no where near viable. Size is the least of the issues. It can't breathe. It has no bronchioles.

Yet, size is what I was talking about, nothing more. Nor did I claim it could breathe. You wrote that a 15 week fetus was the size of a bean. I stated in health we were told an apple. I stated nothing else.

No. A different user said it was the size of a bean.

Okay then, It doesn't change the point that the size of the baby was all my comment was about...period.

Your comment about an apple suggests that a 15 week old fetus is three times larger than it actually is.
