Pro-choice authors Jules Saltman and Stanley Zimbering write:
“In the earliest days of the existence of an impregnated egg, getting rid of it may be as simple as removing a wart from the side of the nose.”
Jules Saltman and Stanley Zimbering Abortion Today (Springfield, Illinois: Charles C Thomas Publisher, 1973) 15
There is no such thing as an “impregnated egg,” any more than there is such a thing as a “fertilized sperm.” The accurate term for a new human life just implanted in the womb is “embryo.” Before this, the new human being is called a “zygote.” Calling an embryo an impregnated egg (or fertilized egg) is an attempt to muddy the waters and is scientifically inaccurate.
Although an early embryo may not yet look like a baby, the embryo is still a human being in a very early stage of development.Share on Facebook
