Call it whatever you want. It really does not matter if you differentiate the two. That is not the subject that is being debated.
Life beginning at fertilization is not a fact. And trust me - I wish it was a fact just as much as you do, but it is not a "scientific fact".
I have two children of my own, so I have been there and done that, and I agree 100% that life begins at fertilization. But, as far as the "scientific facts go" it is not an established fact. If it is a fact, I would like you to please prove me wrong by citing a scientific journal that has been peer reviewed and widely accepted as fact by the scientific community that life begins at fertilization. I would appreciate if you could do this so that I can use this material in future debate.
Anyway, as much as we do not like it - people are free to make the moral decision for themselves.
Ok.. That is a blog, not a scientific journal.
You make a good point. This should be approached differently than what I am saying. I guess the issue is this - When does "human" life start?
That's a little better. I'll help you out a bit.
You are definitely a life. The question is if we consider that life to be of human worth.
Thanks for helping me out. That was really nice of you.
So yea - answer your question. Can we define the exact moment that we consider life of "human worth"? And, can this answer satisfy every individual moral sensibility?
Ok then - I guess that ends our debate. The moment that "human life" is created is a moral decision that individuals can make for themselves.
The moral decision that abortion of the "biological mass" is not OK at any point in time is a decision that an individual can make.
The moral decision that abortion of the "biological mass" is OK, as long as it is before a set time is a decision that an individual can make.
Some would argue that those that choose the latter have a firey abyss called hell awaiting them. Or - some could choose that such nonsense does not exist.
I figure - it ain't my problem! I learned how to practice safe sex from the love scene in "The Naked Gun".

Yes, and scientific evidence has proven otherwise.
What is your point.
This is kinda silly.
Has anyone read a journal stating that life begins at fertilization?
Has anyone read a journal stating that life does not begin at fertilization?
It is up to you to form an opinion.
For me - life starts at the moment that the man and woman begin thinking about the act of making babies. That way, I am extra safe about it. And no - there are no scientific journals that support this.
This is exactly my point. He spelled fact wrong. It's actually spelled o-p-i-n-i-o-n. Do I need to go slower so he can understand me?
I can tell just by looking at this domain name that this site will clearly be unbiased, and give me 100% of the facts.
I really have no interest in this topic, but just because the word FACT keeps getting thrown out there, I feel compelled to point out that many, many people that life begins at implantation, not fertilization. I can't help but think we have a troll here. There is no such thing as the "fact" of when life begins.
That, or someone who fundamentally misunderstands what a fact is.
I'm really done with this, because I've seen some of this troll's other posts and I now realize this is clearly not a rational person.
Ice, please let me know when you graduate and I'll make sure to go out of my way to avoid your pharmacy. Thanks, bye.
So long as we're jumped into the abortion debate...
And those websites were totally not biased in any way! Really? prolifephysicians.org? healingtheculture.com's pro-life issues page? acpeds.org, which upon a brief examination reveals itself to be a highly conservative club for pediatricians? You'll forgive me if I'm not convinced.
You may as well be asking if Obama or Katy Perry is President of the United StatesIsn't this thread topic called "Drug test for pharmacy school?" and not "Does life begin at fertilization or implantation?"
They didn't drug test us for pharmacy school... but some rotation sites require it.
My first rotation site made it a point to say they don't require it and a classmate had a preceptor send a HUGE email saying they do not drug test, like size 28 font. I think it is funny, like what are we going to do with that information? Lol
Smoke your last doobie?
The torah prohibits birth control? Or prohibits selling birth control? These are two different things. Though you may not have the critical thinking skills to distinguish the difference. (Read more!)
(Stuff where iceman decides I'm attacking him personally) ... However you act as if I am cramming religion down your throat when I am just giving another side of the story SUBJECTIVELY.
Of course, most of your points are just kind of rambling as you have already said. Point out specific instances (Like when I said disrespecting religion would create a horrible pharmacist) and then I would be happy to argue them.
