‘When Does Personhood Begin? It’s Not Simple'
Presenter: Oz Crosby
Originally, I suggested “When Does Life Begin?” as a title, but after some research, I realized that was not the really deep question. My reasoning: If we define alive as the opposite of dead, then life, even human life really doesn’t have a beginning. Sperms or eggs aren’t dead. Fertilized egg isn’t dead, etc. At what point can we define something with the potential to become a living, breathing human a “person”? Is there a meaningful difference between "life” and “person”?
