A recent PBS program about the development of the unborn baby claimed that at eight weeks “we’re not an individual yet.”
It said that the very “first signs of individuality” (which it described as sex identity) are known after eight weeks.
WRONG. The uniqueness of a person’s individuality, including gender, is established at the moment of conception, NOT eight weeks later. Science knows this. And the Catholic Church knows this, Ms. Pelosi.1
It is the height of arrogance to push a lie in an attempt to dehumanize the baby at early development — with the accompanying implication that there’s no need to place any importance about this supposedly unidentifiable life. A human exists from the moment of conception. Any attempt to arbitrarily disqualify life as being less than human after that moment follows in the steps of great perpetrators of evil like Hitler, the Ku Klux Klan and Planned Parenthood.
