Well, the answer only seems to matter then.Ray said:And really, does the question of "when life begins" only matter when we're talking about abortion?
I don't think it's a scientific question. It's a philosophical question, and that question really is: What should the word 'life' mean? We're haggling over a definition, not a line that a potential human crosses.
When does life begin when an amoeba is splitting into two?
The problem is reverse engineering the definition to fit our preconceived notions of when abortion should be acceptable.
