Default Re: News Miscellany

There's no strong consensus on the question, mostly because it depends so much on your definitions. What do you mean by "life begins?" I would object to calling it a human life for most if not all of a pregnancy for several reasons, but we don't even need to get into the science to see the problems with the notion that we should call it a human life at the instant of fertilization. It leads to some incredibly absurd behavior, like investigating and prosecuting women for having miscarriages, and it prioritizes a single cell that could become a human over an actual living human.
