The beginning and end of human life: the view from Australia : Comments

By Peter Sellick, published 29/12/2021

The arguments around VAD are like those around abortion. Both end a life, and both are justified by the assertion of human rights.

There is no point in getting involved in the abortion argument. Just be aware that abortion is just one of things that is removing the 'civilisation' from Western civilisation.

Is it fair for a child to suffer a life of consequences due to it's parents' indisciplined drug & alcohol fuelled behaviour such as we see daily by the tattooed & body-pierced Bogans of 'proud British heritage'?

There is little room left in our neatly structured world, for the inconvenience of the life of others.

Donít fall under the bus, there is no mercy!

The medical profession disagrees:

"Human development begins after the union of male and female gametes or germ cells during a process known as fertilization (conception).
"Fertilization is a sequence of events that begins with the contact of a sperm (spermatozoon) with a secondary oocyte (ovum) and ends with the fusion of their pronuclei (the haploid nuclei of the sperm and ovum) and the mingling of their chromosomes to form a new cell. This fertilized ovum, known as a zygote, is a large diploid cell that is the beginning, or primordium, of a human being."
[Moore, Keith L. Essentials of Human Embryology. Toronto: B.C. Decker Inc, 1988, p.2]

"The development of a human being begins with fertilization, a process by which two highly specialized cells, the spermatozoon from the male and the oocyte from the female, unite to give rise to a new organism, the zygote."
[Langman, Jan. Medical Embryology. 3rd edition. Baltimore: Williams and Wilkins, 1975, p. 3]
