• Zygote has no life

    4

    A zygote on its own has zero chance of surviving and therefore has no life to speak of. It has to implant itself in uterine endometrium (zygote at this stage is now called blastocyst) to have a chance to survive. This is the reason why the American Medical Association (AMA), American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), British Medical Association (BMA) and other equivalent medical authorities in other countries define blastocyst as the beginning of life (conception) and not zygote.

    Hormonal birth pills prevents zygote and/or blastocyst formation. IUD is spermicidal and/or ovicidal. None of them kills a blastocyst that is already formed and therefore are NOT abortifacient.

    1. Let me get this straight… a zygote has no life because it cannot survive on it’s own? Following that line of argument, a newborn baby cannot survive on it’s own therefore it also has no life. Heck even a year old baby when left to fend for itself will not survive on it’s own.

      There are three mechanisms for birth control and one of them is the prevention of implantation by making the uterus a hostile environment for the fertilized zygote. Therefore it is an abortifacient since it forces uterine contractions that will expel the fertilized zygote.

      Life begins at conception – the union between a sperm cell and ovum. That is a well-established scientific fact. No doctor can disprove it.

    2. Dr. Garcia,
      Hormonal birth pills prevents zygote and/or blastocyst formation IF THERE IS NO OVULATION. Agree that is contraception BUT THERE ARE FAILURES OF HORMONAL BIRTH CONTROL PILLS ESCAPE OVULATION FOLLOWS. It also prevent NIDATION BECAUSE OF HOSTILE ENDOMETRIUM THERE ABORTIFACIENT EFFECT.
      IUD is spermicidal and/or ovicidal. “None of them kills a blastocyst that is already formed and therefore are NOT abortifacient”.YOU SAID: None of them kills a blastocyst that is already formed and therefore are NOT abortifacient. HORMONAL CONTRACEPTIVE MAKE THE ENDOMETRIUM NOT RECPTIVE OF THE BLASTOCYST THEREFORE IT WILL SLOUGH AS MENSTRUATION. PLEASE READ THE BOOK ON IMPLANTATION AND THE IMPACT.

    3. Glad your practicing in the US. A doctor who equates viability with life is to me not a true doctor. Remind me never to consult with you!

    4. Really? Amazing.

      If the zygote has no life then how can it move, find it’s way, and then “implant itself inside the uterine endometrium?”

      You are definitely confusing life of a zygote as against “chance to survive.” In the first place, the words “chance to survive” implies that the zygote is a living thing, correct?
