According to researchers at Northwestern University, not only have they pinpointed the moment of conception--they have documented the event.
A study published last week was accompanied by a stunning video that reveals a flash of light at the moment on conception. Apparently, "the egg releases massive amounts of zinc, which creates a spark that can be seen with the aid of a microscope."
"It was remarkable," said Teresa Woodruff, a professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Northwestern University Medical School. "To see the zinc radiate out in a burst (of light) from each human egg was breathtaking."
Of course the unintended consequence of the study/video is that it finally proves that life begins at conception. It should absolutely stagger the pro-choice proponents (but probably won't).
"I saw this, and I was blown away by it," said Rush Limbaugh. "For anybody in the mainstream media to openly admit that life begins at conception defies arguments that an unborn child is only 'tissue mass.'"
What this evidence will do to the abortion laws remains to be seen, but George W. Bush had it right when he said:
"America stands for liberty, for the pursuit of happiness and for the unalienable right for life. This right to life cannot be granted or denied by government because it does not come from government, it comes from the Creator of life."
