    Does a new person's life "biologically" begin at conception?
    For those who voted 'NO', I'd like to know when you think a person's life biologically begins?

    24 to 36 hours after conception, when cell division starts to occur

    Oh good -then the morning after shouldn't be an issue for you.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    We have a thread on this question already, it has 1258 replies so far. But the answer depends on your definition. Life itself biologically began a long time ago. New DNA begins at the first mitosis after fertilization. Individuality, the inability to make a twin, begins at gastrulation. Brain activity seems to begin after 7-9 weeks gestation, but sentience and consciousness might take until 36 weeks or more. Legal protection begins at viability. Citizenship and separation begin at birth.

    The normal one, to start or originate. I don't like to play dictionary games the way you do. Which part do you disagree with?
