TQC! i'm embroiled in an intense debate re mississippi's initiative 26 (which would have amended the state Constitution to define life “to include every human being from the moment of fertilization, cloning or the functional equivalent thereof.”).
help me out: is "conception" usually defined as fertilization?
or is it fertilization + the zygote's implantation in the uterine wall?
google was not terribly helpful--lots of conflicting info. thanks!
