Is this a "slippery slope" or the logical working out of a principle?

Mom was negligent while baby was in utero. The baby survived, was born and lived for six days when he or she succumbed to the injuries that occurred pre-birth.

This is a tough case.  Mom must be grieving, but everyone deserves the protection of the law.

Ultimately, do we want a rule that says that people cannot be protected from injuries inflicted prior to birth?

Ultimately, do we really want a rule that says that a person was not the SAME person immediately before birth?
