Stunning video done by a mathematician!
First, here’s one of my pet-peeves…because words matter. Let’s start using the proper terms. From Wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beginning_of_pregnancy_controversy
In 1959, Dr. Bent Boving suggested that the word “conception” should be associated with the process of implantation instead of fertilization. Some thought was given to possible societal consequences, as evidenced by Boving’s statement that “the social advantage of being considered to prevent conception rather than to destroy an established pregnancy could depend on something so simple as a prudent habit of speech.” (Emphasis mine.) In 1965, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) adopted Boving’s definition: “conception is the implantation of a fertilized ovum.”
So when I hear “from conception to natural death” I’m irked. Using current medical terminology, conception means implantation in the womb. But fertilization–when sperm meets egg and new life begins–can take place up to two weeks before the new baby gets to the mother’s womb.
Also note in the video that “Egg inseminated” also means “fertilization”…the beginning of life! But I love how the word “baby” keeps showing up.
Okay, rant over. Take a look at this beautiful video! (Graphic image warning! Please preview before sharing.)
