By maxwell edison ·
And why won't/can't anyone provide a definite answer, either medically or legally?

To admit that they dont know. I say life begins after the kids are finnaly out of the house :)

Life Begins when the Kids have left the house and moved Far Far Far away.

One of mine has and the other is at best 10 minutes driving time away so Life for SHMBO & Me has not yet began.

Yes I have the same problem; my son got his self with child too soon. And he lost his job now we have been paying out of the savings for our retirement. He has lots of job offers but nothing so far, our savings have gone to keeping his house and utilities on.
What happened to the idea that I will provide for my family no matter what?
My son will ask me to fix or help him with simple computer problems, even after I sent him to the same school I went to.

Before I kinked my fern and got fired blah blah, we had plans for building a much larger house to accomodate everyone easier, a modified duplex style log home.

I think it depends upon the individual. I know some people have kids that could be poster children for abortion and I'm not saying that's the case for anyone here. I understand that viewpoint, I just don't share it.
Just that the thought of my daughter and son-in-law moving out hurts me. I'd have to mow my own lawn again, for one thing. I can think of other reasons too.

They really helped out, mow the lawn! I was lucky to have them clean out the microwave after they blew up a meal :)

The truth is life begins when gametes combine.

That is a strictly scientific answer.

The DNA patrtern is then established. Even if the fertilized egg is transplanted, it will have the same genetic nature.

What happens when the Fertilised egg fails to attach itself to the wall of the uterus?

This is a common event so if that is the Technical Beginning of Life there is quite a lot of it lost through no ones fault.

Amazing how bright you are. Especially when we agree.

The viability of a fetus keeps heading toward day zero.

by X-MarCap In reply to When does life begin?

With the fact that fertilized eggs can be transplanted and be viable the only answer is the one that liberal hate. Life begins at conception, or when you get your pilot's license. I can accept either of those two premises.

Good to see you back Max!!!

Billyuns & billyuns of years ago

by NickNielsen In reply to When does life begin?

The answer I know to be true is that life began (on Earth) so long ago that nobody human was there and has continuously reproduced ever since.

The answer I believe to be true is that life begins when a fetus can react to external stimuli.

The answer I want to be true is that life begins when all the bills are paid. ;p

Edit: type, post, proofread
