Is there any scientific evidence that proves that life does begin at conception?


Matt say: Egg cells are alive before they reach the uterus and sperm cells are alive before they get 'injected'

So what do you mean by life begining?
Cowboy say: You're asking for a scientific definition of life to solve your political abortion dilemma?
Too bad for you - a zygote is not a human, a fetus is not a human, a pulsating cardiac cell is not a heart, until birth, there is no politics, no people. But long after birth - when these now adult people need medical attention, will you support their access to medical care, even if they have no money? If you can't support adults, it's pointless to support unborn children.
Bulldog redux say: This isn't a matter of science, it's a matter of lexical semantics. It's not an argument about science, it's an argument about the definitions of words. If you want to get scientific, life began only once about 3.8 billion years ago, and it's been handed down in an endless chain ever since.
say: Tell me; how much would you sell me one of your eyeballs for? A million? Two?
I believe your answer is that you would not consider any price for your eyeball.
Then how much more valuable is one human life?
And if what is forming in the womb, is not a human, then what is it?

If not at conception, when then does life enter the womb? Tell us if you know, so that we too may have the knowledge.

Your baby's heart starts beating only 22 days after she is conceived. She is a living soul from the get-go, and her body forms around it.
CRR say: Yes, definitely. It has a full complement of human DNA and has fully functioning biochemistry and if allowed to will develop into an individual human being.
Silver say: Yes, life does begin at conception, but it’s only cellular life (a zygote in this case) and has no “conscious life” per say.
Mr. Smartypants say: No there isn't. For many years Pro Lifers were not sure exactly where they should determine that life begins. The decision that once the egg is fertilized, life is begun, served as a stake in the ground that Pro Lifers could rally around. But it's not in the Bible, it's not a technical fact. In fact it was a POLITICAL decision, not one based on faith. It allowed the GOP to co-opt the US fundamentalist/evangelical Christian movement and warp it to their own political purposes.

Just for a moment, consider an alternative. Suppose they had decided that life begins when brain waves begin. Before that, you have no consciousness, no fear or pain, no personality. When someone's brain waves cease, we call that -death-. Nobody has ever come back from brain death! So why not consider the other end of brain activity as the beginning of life?

This happens around 10 weeks, so setting this as the standard would allow a woman 6-8 weeks to learn she's pregnant (because it takes that long), then another week or two to talk to her husband, her pastor, her doctor, and make a decision. First trimester abortion, cheap, quick, safe. After that you'd need a good decision.

How reasonable! But the whole point of the Republican Pro Life thing is NOT to be reasonable. No temporary compromises that might greatly reduce abortion (and its danger) while we try to change peoples' minds. They deliberately DESIGNED this issue to be insoluble, so they could get the maximum political mileage out of it. 40 years now.
Corvus Blackthorne say: As the brain is the seat of consciousness, there is actually evidence to the contrary.
Doug say: Yes. There is human DNA present from conception. In spite of the liberal pro-abortion media, science is actually favoring the pro-life side. Furthermore, only about 7 percent of gynecologists in the US will even perform an abortion!

The good news for those who have had an abortion is that they haven't committed an unforgivable sin. Jesus Christ paid for ALL our sins on the cross (John 1:29).

Because we have all sinned against a perfectly holy and righteous God, we all deserve eternal separation from God in hell (Rom. 6:23). However, God loves us so much that He sent His only Son Jesus to die on the cross as our Substitute. Christ died on the cross for our sins, was buried, and rose from the grave (1 Cor. 15:3-4). The Bible is clear that salvation is not by our good works. The only condition for receiving everlasting life is to believe in Jesus for that free gift! It really is that simple.

"Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life" (John 6:47).
Ernest S say: So you are saying that which is conceived is dead?
Johnson say: Absolutely not.

I’ve learned through my work as a Physician Assistant for numerous Obstetrician-Gynecologists that abortion is sometimes a medical necessity to prevent unneeded suffering. Restrictive abortion laws are unnecessary and prevent physicians from providing just and appropriate care to the patient. About two years ago or so, I heard from a colleague whose daughter was 16 weeks pregnant and had just learned her fetus had a life-threatening genetic disorder that meant it could not survive after birth. The woman lived in a conservative state with very strict abortion restrictions, and her doctors initially offered her only “thoughts and prayers” because nothing else could possibly be done to help her. Her colleagues needed to direct the family to another state where the procedure could be performed within a week. Thankfully, she ended up here in Virginia where she got the care she needed.
ob1knob say: Define "life"

You are not looking for scientific evidence.
You are just seeking for arguments in your meaningless pro-life vs pro-choice debate.

Science can describe precisely the stages of development of the embryo, fetus, and baby, almost on a daily basis (hourly for earliest cell divisions). What good would it do you to know it?

Please keep science out of your activism.
geezer say: Yes.
Cells start to divide.
That wouldn't happen if ''life'' wasn't there.
The question is .. At what point can that ''life'' be considered as ''independant'' and ''aware'' ?
Elaine M say: Cell division is the start of life in some ways, but many undeveloped 'beginning life' is actually reabsorbed by the body, and not actually moves on to a pregnancy.
D g say: it all depends on your original definition of life..

a baby taken out of the womb early will likely die even if cared for so does that mean it was allive

most people dont remember what happened to them before age 2 if that so that means memory is not working as well for then either ...

if you define alive as blood pumping thats a sad form of life if you were brain dead but your heart still pumped
JazSinc say: Nope. Evidence points to life beginning maybe four billion years ago. You have continuity with some pretty good chemical replicator systems.
I'll leave it to you to look up
RNA World hypothesis
say: Yes there is.
