When does human life begin?

Human embryologists, the real scientific experts in the area of human development, authoritatively conclude that a human embryo is a human being immediately beginning at fertilization – the fusion of an egg and sperm immediately resulting in a new, genetically distinct human being (zygote).  At no other logical or scientifically sound point can we say that human life begins.  The embryo is not an organ or some pre-human cellular glob without purpose or plan.  Embryologists categorically reject the notion of a “pre-embryo” or some form of evolving “human-being-on-the-way.”  From its inception, the embryo contains its entire genetic makeup and needs only time to grow and develop into what we would recognize as a human person.
