Fetal Rights Pro- Life Arguments: 1- Since life begins at conception, abortion would be considered murder, which is a crime. According to Singh, human life begins with the fusion of two unique and complementary cells; the human oocyte, the human spermatozoid (Singh, 173- 175). In other words, life begins when a genetically unique individual is formed, that means when the two gametes merge. “During this developmental event, the genes originating from two sources combine to form a single individual with a different and unique set of genes” (Gilbert). Fertilization is considered the beginning of human life because a new combination of genetic material is created for the first time; thus, the zygote is a unique being. Gilbert,S., 2002. When does Human Life Begin? Developmental Biology. 11 th Edition. Retrieved from: .pdf Singh, K., 2016. Integrated Approach to Obstetrics and Gynaecology. Singapore: World Scientific. 2- Adoption is always an alternative to abortion and approximately two million infertile couples are waiting to adopt, so there is no such thing as an unwanted child regardless of their birth condition (Brown). The CDC, in 2002, stated that 33.1 % of women have considered adoption (CDC). There are plenty of families who go on waitlists to adopt and unborn child and are desperate to care and love a child. Mothers with unwanted babies can chose the family, and it is imperative to promote adoption and inform these women of this alternative to abortion.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
