From the viewpoint of metaphysics/epistemology,
a fetus is not a human being, it is a part of a human being
(the mother). After birth, it is a human being (the newborn).

Arranging human creatures into age groups, infants (0 to 1), children (2 to 8), pre-teens (9 to 12), teens (13 to 19), adults (over 19), is really based on characteristic biological processes as well as on psychological changes. 
The current classification mostly involves physiologic processes: birth, crawling, no talk no walk; walk, speech; puberty; from puberty to maturity, from maturity to death. Given the geographical conditions and nurturing, the pace of child development may differ. 
Note the prenatal stage of fetus (-0,9 to 0), started by conception of human creature, from embryo to fetus to newborn, should have the same legal status as other stages of human development. That means abortion, in a sense, is a sort of killing of a human being by a human being.

Subject: [ontolog-forum] An Ontology Modeling Different Age Groups

Hello all,
I am trying to find an ontology/terminology which models different age groups of a person: infant, teenage, adult etc. I looked at SNOMED-CT, and noticed how a "Person" is categorized by age, but didn't really understand how "age" is associated -- for example, is an 18-year old considered a "pre-teen"?
I would appreciate your inputs.
