Simple logic put me on the right path many years ago concerning when a human life begins. I asked myself, “What does it take for a zygote to be a human being?”
Later on, Dr. Duane Gish, Biologist, came to my church in 1991 and spoke to us about life and what the Bible has to say about it. I asked him my question and here is his answer (summarized):
The scientific approach to life is to answer these two questions:
- Is it human (does it have 23 chromosomes)?
- Is it alive (does it take in nourishment, excrete waste, and grow)?
If the answer to both of these questions is yes, then it IS a human life. Thus, the moment the sperm enters the egg and creates a zygote, it is a human life.
Do all biologists follow this logic? 90% of them do, according to a study done by Steven Jacobs! Here is the link to the article about his findings.
It is interesting to note that many who adhere to the scientific logic DO NOT support the Pro-Life movement. In fact, many become emotional and militant about Pro-Choice. It just goes to show that it’s personal and not objective. It also reveals a sinister mastermind behind Pro-Choice who disregards logic and truth to press his own agenda, which is to destroy anything God has made, particularly mankind.
