126. But they're wrong
I hate getting involved in abortion debates, but their beliefs are simply not true.

Scientists don't agree on when "human life" actually begins, but they do agree that it's not at conception. To say a human life exists at conception is absurd. A zygote does not have a nervous system. Is it "alive"? Of course. So is a sperm cell and so is a leaf.

I understand calling it murder after a certain point in time, when the brain develops, or even when he circulatory system develops. But at fertilization, to say we have a human life is simply not factually true.
