Description

My stance is that life begins at conception, when a female's ovum is fertilized by a male's sperm. Aborting the pregnancy at any time ends that human life, and is therefore murder.

Given that an uninterrupted pregnancy will, in most circumstances, result in a healthy newborn baby approximately 9 months after conception, the Burden of Proof (B.o.P.) shall be on Con, to prove when life begins, if not at conception, and to also prove that aborting a pregnancy is not an activity which ends a human life.
