People often cry 

And ask when does life begin? 

Does the answer lie 

With  clinical exactitude?

With  religious dogmatism?

With legal  certitude?

With political correctness, or  other?

No,  the simple fact is that

Life begins  with the word mother

    I like the way you explore this highly debated issue and offer a simple answer that could offend no one, Syd. Being Catholic, I believe the moment of conception is the start of life, but that would never occur without a mother. Love, Carolyn
