Neurosurgeon Mike Egnor on when human life begins

As if there has ever been any science-based doubt:

… from a scientific standpoint, at the moment of fertilization of the egg by the sperm, a completely new organism is present. The organism is not a part of the mother’s body although he or she is located within the mother’s body. Half of the time, the organism is a boy. The genetic complement of the new human being is unique and different from that of the mother.

The argument that this unique human being present in the mother’s womb from the moment of fertilization is a part of the mother’s body until sometime later in gestation is, from a scientific viewpoint, bizarre. What this argument would imply is that human beings reproduce by a process of budding, which is a process by which a new individual organism forms from a part of the mother’s body. This is the means of reproduction of some species of worms but it is most certainly not a means of reproduction by human beings.

This argument used by abortion proponents — that an embryo or fetus is a part of the mother’s body until a certain point of gestation — is scientific nonsense. When the argument is made by a scientist, it represents either scientific incompetence or deliberate deception.

Michael Egnor, “When Does Human Life Begin?” at Evolution News and Science Today (May 9, 2022)

The question at issue, of course, is not a science one. It is: When does life that matters to the Woke begin? It depends on what the Woke want at any given time.

It is clear that many such children die in great torment.

    The pro-abort dividing line is more about caste than time. Peter Singer makes it quite explicit. Only PhD material should be allowed to survive.

    Women who sacrifice their children on the altar of Margaret Sanger do not care about science.

    Then there is the phenomena of “Transgenderism.” Nearby is a discussion of cell division, and cell differentiation. A child is conceived, and then almost immediately, the cells begin to split with one going off to become part of the heart, another to the skin, another to a toenail.
    Along the way, the male or female reproductive organs are constructed in this manner – cell differentiation. A child’s sex and gender is determined in the womb, well before that individual boy or girl child exits the mother and embarks on the journey of a little boy, or a little girl. And certainly, many years before that little boy or little girl becomes a teenager and decides to outsmart nature and become someone she or he has never been in the entirety of his or her existence as a human being, nor will ever be in the future.
    I am amazed at the silence of PhD scientists, Doctors, professors, Nobel winners, in places like Yale, Harvard, Berkley and elsewhere remain silent when local school boards, and the President of the United States pronounce that boys can become girls, men can become women, man can give birth.
    Why is it that these highly (over) educated scientists and doctors remain silent in the face of these clearly false “woke” doctrines sweeping the nation’s youth?

    The not-so-funny thing about this is that the Woke crave the appearance of being More Virtuous Than Thou while at the same time not having a standard of virtue.

    Where is the team of psychologists studying this?

    How did the organism get in the mother’s body?

    If the past is a predictor, they’re busy rationalizing what the Woke are doing.
