Leave it alone! There are conflicting beliefs on when life begins and we will NEVER agree. Women have traditionally held that there is a quickening around 13 - 15 weeks, and in ancient times it was when they said the soul had entered the body. Now, we often say life can be "detected" at 12 weeks normally with a heart beat, but a representation of a heartbeat can be sent with Doppler as early as 8 weeks. 9 weeks is the signal of transition from embryo to fetus with all organs and limbs able to begin full development to viable birth. SO... no, I do not agree that life begins at conception, but closer to 12 -15 weeks. So, I say leave it alone.
