When does a human being come into existence during pregnancy?
At what point during a woman's pregnancy does a human being come into existence? Provide an embryological, scientific, or biological reason for your answer.
That depends completely on which country you live in. China for example do not consider the baby a human being until its first unassisted breath. Each country has its own time frame for the different stages of development.
hope it helps.
This is a tough question, and I do not think there is any definitive answer. However, I personally believe a human comes into existence at the beginning of embryogenesis, which is roughly two weeks after conception, from what I understand.
The baby is a human being as soon as the mother's egg unites with the father's sperm. The Bible never used the term "pregnant". It always referred to a woman as "with child". You can read about the different stages of growth of the CHILD even at that very early stage. To take an unborn baby's life is murder. Many do not believe this, but I feel very strongly about this. A women "with child" has a living, breathing, kicking child inside them.
Excellent answer, Emily Sparks. You hit the nail on the head. Anyone who says that a human being begins at some arbitrary point after fertilization is doing so to justify abortion. I can think of no other reason for doing so.
To further support your position, here is an excellent article regarding when a human being begins:

Many people I've shared this with dismiss the article because it's on a Catholic web site, but it is true none the less. The article is on a Catholic website, but it lists non-Catholic references. A good read!

Hi friendsJesus was flesh and bones like any human being; he was no god or son of god.The Bible does not mention from where he got bones; it mentions of flesh only. Flesh is a weak substance; not fit for a god. Is it not true?He himself said he was Son of Man; being a weak person like all of us....
