Science - for more in-depth research click here Embryology The science of studying embryo development, usually applied to all development before birth (in humans, included both the embryonic and fetal period). T.W. Sadler’s Langman’s  Embryology, states: “The development of a human begins with fertilization, a process by which the spermatozoon from the male and the oocyte from the female unite to give rise to a new organism, the zygote.” 5 th ed. (Philadelphia: W.B. Saunders, 1993) Richard Stith points out, embryos are not constructed piece by piece from the outside. Rather, they do something that no constructed thing like a car has ever done; they develop themselves from within. That is, they direct their own internal growth and maturation, and this entails continuity of being. “Does Making Babies Make Sense? Why so Many People Find it Difficult to See Humanity in a Developing Foetus,” Mercatornet, September 2, 2008 Dr. Jerome LeJeune, professor of genetics at the University of Descartes, Paris:     …after fertilization has taken place a new human being has come into being …. Each individual has a very neat beginning, at conception. Randy Alcorn, “Scientists Attest To Life Beginning At Conception,” http://www.epm.org/articles/ life_conception.html Dr. Alfred M. Bongioanni, professor of pediatrics and obstetrics, University of Pennsylvania:     I have learned from my earliest medical education that human life begins at the time of conception …. I submit that human life is present throughout this entire sequence from conception to adulthood and that any interruption at any point throughout this time constitutes a termination of human life….     I am no more prepared to say that these early stages represent an incomplete human being than I would be to say that the child prior to the dramatic effects of puberty…is not a human being. This is human life at every stage.[1] Randy Alcorn, “Scientists Attest To Life Beginning At Conception,” http://www.epm.org/articles/ life_conception.html   An official statement from the embryology department of the biological faculty of Moscow State University condemned abortion in these terms: "From the point of view of modern biology (genetics, embryology) a human being's life begins from the moment of the merging of masculine and feminine sexual cells when a new nucleus is established, the one containing unique genetic data... During the entire prenatal period a new human being can not be considered as a part of mother's body: it must not be dealt with as an organ or a part of the body of mother... So it is obvious that abortion accomplished at any term of pregnancy is a deliberate ending of human life (the life of a human being as a biological individuum)." The Dean of the Embryological Department, Biological Faculty, Moscow State University Proffessor, Dr. of Biology, V.A. Golichenkov Professor, Dr. of Biology, D.V. Popov 03.09.1993 http://www.pms.orthodoxy.ru/zhizn/english/gazeta.html Rape and Pregnancy Eugene F. Diamond, MD, Professor of Pediatrics and Past Chairman of the Department of Pediatrics at Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine, wrote in the “To the Editor” section of the April 11, 1985 issue of the  New England Journal of Medicine: Pregnancy is rare after a single act of forcible rape. In a prospective study of 4000 rapes in Minnesota, there were no pregnancies. In a retrospective study covering nine years in Chicago, there were no pregnancies. In a prospective study of 117 rapes there were no pregnancies among either the 17 victims who received DES or the 100 who did not. Abortion damages women: Women who have had abortions suffer an increased risk of anxiety, depression, and suicide. A study published in a 2005 edition of the Journal of Anxiety Disorders found that women who aborted their unintended pregnancies were 30 percent more likely to subsequently report all the symptoms of generalized anxiety disorder than those women who had carried their unintended pregnancies to term. A study of a state-funded medical insurance program in California published in the American Journal of Orthopsychiatry in 2002 showed that the rate of mental health claims for women who aborted was 17 percent higher than those who had carried their children to term. According to a 1996 article in the British Medical Journal and a 2002 article in the Southern Medical Journal, the risk of death from suicide is two to six times higher for women who have had abortions when compared, again, with women who have given birth.   In a landmark 2003 article in the Obstetrical and Gynaecological Survey, several studies showed that induced abortion also increases the risk of placenta previa by 50 percent and doubles the risk of pre-term birth in later pregnancies. Placenta previa — where the placenta implants at the bottom of the uterus and covers the cervix — places the lives of both mother and child at risk in that later pregnancy. Pre-term birth is associated with low birth-weight babies, and very low birth-weight babies (those born between 20 and 27 weeks) have 38 times the risk of having cerebral palsy than full-term babies. According to Dr. Byron Calhoun, director of the Antenatal Diagnostic Center at Rockford Memorial Hospital in Illinois, approximately 30 percent of pre-term births are attributable to prior abortions.
