Professor presents 19 textbooks saying life begins at conception

Patrick A Trueman, who helped prepare a 1975 brief before the Illinois Supreme Court on the unborn child:

“We introduced an affidavit from a professor of medicine detailing 19 textbooks on the subject of embryology used in medical schools today which universally agreed that human life begins at conception… Those textbooks agree that is when human life begins. The court didn’t strike that down – the court couldn’t strike that down because there was a logical/biological basis for that law.”
