I will add a brief comment to those who have written on the subject of whether a fetus is a child or living individual. I agree strongly with those who answer that question in the affirmative. In addition to the scriptures cited already by others, we can add Jeremiah 1:5, in which God recognized Jeremiah as a unique person not only while he was in the womb, but before he was even conceived!
Referring to the idea that Torah doesn?t have a position on abortion. What I found in Torah is that "life is in the blood". I believe the fetus has a heartbeat at 4 weeks, therefore removing something that has a heartbeat to me is removing something that has blood and is eliminating life because the beating heart is pumping blood which is life.

The verse from Exodus cited seems to refer to an accidental killing of a baby in the womb. Two men are said to be striving, and through the recklessness of one or both of them, the unborn child is killed. This seems different from intentionally killing a baby as happens in abortion. I think a more relevant analogy might be ancient peoples, such as the Canaanites and Carthaginians who sacrificed their children by rolling them into burning cauldrons dedicated to their god Moloch. (Chemical abortions are possibly similar in their effect.) The Bible speaks unequivocally against this practice.
