"Maximum human being"?

Emma Jane (The Weekend Australian, October 16-17, 2010) says the pro-life movement "elevates the unborn baby from Human Lite to Maximum Being." Jane is arguing for a cautious pro-choice position but doesn't believe the unborn baby in a woman's womb is fully human. The difficulty here is that she doesn't define what a "maximum being" is or why the baby doesn't meet that criteria.
