After studying the course materials located on Module 2: Lecture Materials & Resources page, answer the following:
ONTOLOGICAL STATUS OF HUMAN EMBRYO:
• MONOZYGOTIC TWINNING
• TWIN REABSORPTION

FETAL HEARTBEAT W ULTRASOUND (~150 BPM)
SUMMARY, REGARDING FERTILIZATION AND EMBRYONIC DEVELOPMENT:
• FIRST, LIFE BEGINS AT FERTILIZATION; WE HUMANS ARE NO DIFFERENT (UNIVERSAL LAW)
• CONTINUOUS DEVELOPMENT OF TISSUES, ORGANS AND SYSTEMS
• FROM THE ZYGOTE, THROUGH 9 MONTHS, UP TO BIRTH.
• AFER BIRTH, DEVELOPMENT CONTINUES, UP TO ADULTHOOD.
THEREFORE, THERE IS NO STAGE OF DEVELOPMENT WHEN WE,
ALL OF A SUDDEN, PASS FROM BEING “NON-HUMAN” TO “HUMAN.”
RATHER, WE ARE HUMAN, FROM CONCEPTION TO DEATH.
ONTOLOGICAL STATUS OF THE HUMAN EMBRYO AT THE ZYGOTE LEVEL:
• INDIVIDUAL HUMAN LIFE?
• HUMAN BEING?
• HUMAN PERSON?
PERSON, PROSOPON = MASK
from Classical Greek Theatre
• IMMEDIATE: AT FERTILIZATION
• DELAYED: SOMETIME AFTER FERTILIZATION
CHARACTERISTICS OF THE HUMAN SOUL:
• INDIVIDUAL (PERSONAL)
• SIMPLE (INDIVISIBLE)
• ETERNAL (HAS AN ORIGIN, BUT NO END)
SUBSTANTIAL UNITY BETWEEN BODY AND SOUL:
“WE ARE BODY AND SOUL, ONE” SAINT POPE JOHN PAUL II
AND, CONTINUOUS EMBRYONIC DEVELOPMENT FROM ZYGOTE TO BIRTH.
THEREFORE, THE ONLY LOGICAL MOMENT OF ENSOULMENT IS AT FERTILIZATION.
TELEOLOGY = ULTIMATE END, FINALITY = TO BE IN UNION WITH GOD (BEATIFIC VISION)
TWO CHALLENGES TO IMMEDIATE ENSOULMENT:
• MONOZYGOTIC TWINS
• TWIN REABSORPTION
Abby and Brittany Hensel 27 years old
Knatalye Hope and Adeline Faith Mata
• RESORPTION OR VANISHING TWIN
• PARASITIC TWINS
EXAMPLES OF PARASITIC TWINS
THEOLOGICAL SUMMARY OF ENSOULMENT IN SPECIAL CASES:
• MONOZYGOTIC TWINS: 1 SOUL -> SPLIT -> 2 SOULS
• RESORPTION: 1 SOUL -> SPLIT -> 2 SOULS -> RESORPTION (DEATH) -> 1 SOUL
NO MINIMAL TIME REQUIRED
FOR A HUMAN BODY TO BE ALIVE IN ORDER
TO QUALIFY FOR RECEIVING A SOUL.
• MEDICAL TERMINOLOGY
• ABORTION METHODS
• ALTERNATIVES TO ABORTION
PROCURED, ELECTIVE, INDUCED
• INTRA-UTERINE DEVICE
• CONTRACEPTIVE PILLS
• “MORNING AFTER” PILL (PLAN B)
PROCURED ABORTION (ELECTIVE ABORTION):
WILLFULLY DESIRING TO KILL AN UNBORN HUMAN (CHILD IN THE WOMB).
A GRAVE MORAL EVIL.
ESTIMATED 60,000,000 SINCE 1973, IN ADDITION TO:
• INTRA-UTERINE DEVICE (IUD) • CONTRACEPTIVE PILLS • MORNING-AFTER PILL (PLAN B)
(Human Embryology, Moore et al)
ABORTION METHODS, DEPENDING ON TIME OF PREGNANCY:
• MEDICAL (CHEMICAL) • SURGICAL (MECHANICAL) • COMBINATION OF BOTH
PARTIAL-BIRTH ABORTION (D&X)*
*MAY INCLUDE FETAL CRANIOTOMY
ONCE THE FETAL HEAD IS OUTSIDE THE MOTHER’S BODY, HE/SHE BECOMES A LEGAL PERSON.
• MIFEPRISTONE (RU 486) • MISOPROSTOL (CYTOTEC)
PARTIAL-BIRTH ABORTION PROCEDURE; BREECH POSITION
LEGALIZATION OF ABORTION IN USA: SUPREME COURT, 1973: ROE vs WADE
“ROE” = NORMA McCORVEY
“WADE” = STATE OF TEXAS
SINCE ROE vs WADE, THERE HAVE BEEN OVER 60 MILLION ABORTIONS IN THE U.S.
= ~ 1 EVERY 20 SECONDS =~ 4,300 A DAY = ~ 1.5 MILLION A YEAR
LARGEST GENOCIDE IN THE HISTORY OF HUMANITY
Norma McCorvey's prolife conversion in her own words:
I was sitting in O.R.'s offices when I noticed a fetal development poster. The progression was so obvious, the eyes were so sweet. It hurt my heart, just looking at them. I ran outside and finally, it dawned on me. 'Norma', I said to myself, 'They're right'. I had worked with pregnant women for years. I had been through three pregnancies and deliveries myself. I should have known. Yet something in that poster made me lose my breath. I kept seeing the picture of that tiny, 10-week-old embryo, and I said to myself, that's a baby! It's as if blinders just fell off my eyes and I suddenly understood the truth—that's a baby!
I felt crushed under the truth of this realization. I had to face up to the awful reality. Abortion wasn't about 'products of conception'. It wasn't about 'missed periods'. It was about children being killed in their mother's wombs. All those years I was wrong. Signing that affidavit, I was wrong. Working in an abortion clinic, I was wrong. No more of this first trimester, second trimester, third trimester stuff. Abortion—at any point—was wrong. It was so clear. Painfully clear.
HEALTHY ALTERNATIVES TO ABORTION:
• KEEPING THE BABY
• GIVING THE BABY UP FOR ADOPTION
ESSENTIAL: TO OFFER FULL SUPPORT TO THE PREGNANT MOM.
