Biologists Say Life Begins at Fertilization


Biologists Say Life Begins at Fertilization

Bradley Mattes   |   July 31, 2019

For his doctoral dissertation research, Steven Jacobs titled his study “Balancing Abortion Rights and Fetal Rights.”  He surveyed thousands of Americans, asking them a multiple-choice question of who was best qualified to determine when life begins.  The choices were biologists, religious leaders, voters, philosophers or Supreme Court justices.  A vast majority – eighty percent – said biologists.  Then Dr. Jacobs polled thousands of biologists from around the world, asking them when life begins.  Nearly all of them – ninety-six percent – said life begins at fertilization.  The life or death decision of abortion shouldn’t be based on a political agenda or social problems.  It should be based on science – the reality that God-given life is present.
