A majority of "Pro-lifers" are Christians/theists. "Life begins at conception" they claim. However many fertilized eggs never reach maturity due to completely natural miscarriages. Do these "babies", often no more than a collection of cells, spend eternity in heaven/hell/purgatory? (Which?) How do you ascribe these cell collections, many less advanced than some fungi, a soul but claim intelligent species such as chimpanzees and dolphins have none?

What about identical twins? They begin as a single fertilized egg, a single life. Do they share a soul? Is it split in two?

What you observe can deceive you of the truth. Once you know the truth, you will never be deceived by your created senses again.

I like how so may people say that here and never tell us what the truth is. Enlighten me.
