1. There is a dispute about whether a fetus, while in the womb, has the holiness of its mother which was consecrated to be a Korban.
2. If a firstborn animal was "mostly born" (most of the animal emerged from the womb), and then proclaimed to be an Olah, it has the status of a Bechor and not an Olah.
3. The Mishnah discusses the case of a person who proclaimed, "This animal is a Shelamim, and its fetus is an Olah."
4. The Beraisa discusses a person who says to his maidservant, "You are free, but your fetus is a slave."
5. The Mishnah discusses the case of a person who proclaimed, "This animal is a Temuras Olah, Temuras Shelamim."

1. Raban Shimon ben Gamliel: The fetus has the sanctity of a Korban only when it is born. Beraisa: The fetus has the sanctity of a Korban even while in the womb.
2. Similarly, if a person proclaims Leket to be ownerless after most of it has become detached, it is still considered Leket and thus may be gathered only by the poor.
3. Rebbi Meir: The animal and its fetus are a Shelamim, since he originally proclaimed it a Shelamim in its entirety. Rebbi Yosi: If his original intent was to proclaim it a Shelamim and its fetus an Olah, and he did not merely change his mind after he said it was a Shelamim, the entire proclamation is valid.
4. Rebbi Yosi ha'Glili: The fetus is also free. Chachamim: His words are binding.
5. Rebbi Meir: The animal is a Temuras Olah, since he originally proclaimed it a Temuras Olah. Rebbi Yosi: If his original intent was to proclaim it a Temurah of both an Olah and a Shelamim, and he did not merely change his mind after saying it was a Temuras Olah, the entire proclamation is valid (and it is half Temuras Olah and half Temuras Shelamim).
