If there was a burning building and you could only save one, would you save a two year old baby girl, or 25000 viable embryos?

Overwhelmingly the 2 year old baby is being saved rather than the 2500 embryos. Does no one in this poll believe life starts at conception? Or is a two year old life worth more than 25000 unborn lives? If the latter, then is a 50 year old life worth more than 2500 48 year old lives?

An human embryo is very different than an infant. This is only the development through 8 weeks. What makes a someone the person the are is their brain. During the next stage of development, the fetal stage, it isn’t until about week 33 that the brain resembles a human brain. The embryo only has some swellings at the anterior end of the neural tube. These will develop into the brain, but definitely isn’t a brain. While cells of an embryo are human cells developing toward becoming a independent human being, they are not a human being. It is a developmental stage of a human being, incapable of consciousness or any sort of human thought. An embryo and an infant are very different things, and that’s why you save the baby who is a human being. This is also why there is no difference in the 48 and 50 year old. They are both fully formed human beings.

You don't store some of yours in the freezer in case of an emergency? I thought everyone did that.

Nobody’s sperm.

Basic biology time:😀

The question said embryo. To be an embryo fertilization, sperm uniting with egg, and multiple cell divisions has occurred.
