When Does Life Begin?

Human life begins at the moment the egg of the mother is fertilized by the sperm of the father. At this moment, the 23 chromosomes of the mother and the 23 from the father fuse together to create one new cell, which begins to rapidly divide, forming a unique human being. The details of the baby's early development is shown in the pictures below.

"Before I formed you in the womb... I knew you."  Jeremiah 1:5 (NKJV)
