To the editor: We often hear a lot of discussion as to exactly when, what some call a fetus is accepted as a live human being.

Regardless of the many different views out there, even a not-too-overly-endowed mind should be able to figure out that the exact moment that a female egg unites with a sperm is when a human being comes into existence.

It has just entered the first of its many stages of development that all living humans have to endure en route to its becoming an adult.

The moment of conception has to be considered as the beginning of “life” as only something that lives has the ability to develop further.

It’s simply a fact of life.
