Science Speaks: When Life Begins
Science Speaks: When Life Begins

Download a handy resource of quotes from scientists on when human life begins.

Have you ever had a discussion with a family member, friend or colleague about abortion or destructive human embryo research?  Did you find the person you’re talking with saying that “we don’t know when human life begins.”  Or did they insist that “it’s not a human life, it’s a clump of cells and tissue”?

Here’s a user friendly downloadable PDF that compiles one-liners from medical school textbooks and peer-reviewed scientific journals. This invaluable resource was compiled by Maureen L. Condic, PhD, an embryologist and professor of medicine. The policy debate will continue, but at least we will all know what’s at stake — a unique and unrepeatable human life.
