Science can tell you that a fetus three months into the development process is a form of human life that is not viable outside the womb. It has no recognizable intelligence. It does not have emotions. It can feel pain. It does not have self awareness.

Science can tell you that a new born baby is a form of human life that is viable outside the womb, but would die without outside intervention, for example from a parent. It has very limited intelligence. It has very limited emotions. It can feel pain. It does not have self awareness.

Science can tell you that 6 month old baby is a form of human life that is viable outside the womb, but would die without outside intervention, for example from a parent. It has recognizable intelligence. It has developing emotions. It can feel pain. It has a developing sense of self awareness.

Science can tell you that a fully developed chimpanzee is a form of non-human life that is viable outside the womb, and can survive on its own in an environment with sufficient resources. It has recognizable intelligence. It has significant emotions and mourns over dead members of its clan. It can feel pain. It has a sense of self awareness.

Science does not tell you how to value any of these organisms.
