Today CNN wrote and article titled, “Mississippi gov. supports amendment to declare fertilized egg a person.”
What is the problem with that?
Well there is no such thing as a fertilized human egg. Once a human egg is fertilized, it is no longer an egg but rather called a human zygote or human embryo.
According to the educational non-profit, Endowment for Human Development:
Pregnancy begins at conception with the union of a man’s sperm and a woman’s egg to form a single-cell embryo.
