Yes, as for when does life begin? At conception/fertilization. Our bodies are made of living tissue and cells not matter how great or small they may be. We all love how we can justify sending a rover to Mars looking for that spec of life in a chip of ice, yet our ability to comprehend that same size cell in one's body does not constitute the same level of understanding is beyond my ability to understand it.
All matters important to society/humanity begin at protecting life.
