Isn't Life an Interest?

Ran across this statute in the California Civil Code:

43.1. A child conceived, but not yet born, is deemed an existing person, so far as necessary for the child's interests in the event of the child's subsequent birth.

The applicability of this statute has generally been limited to personal injury cases. It would be kind of interesting, though, if someone could assert this statute in order to be appointed an unborn child's guardian ad litem for the purpose of stopping an abortion.
