Fertilization occurs when a sperm meets and penetrates an egg. At this moment, genetic makeup is complete, including the eye color, hair color, and sex of this new human being. Within three days of fertilization, this new person’s cells are rapidly dividing. They pass through the fallopian tube into the womb, where they attache to the uterine wall. The placenta, which will nourish this new human life, also starts to form.
Uninterrupted, this beautiful human being will spend about eight decades on our little blue planet, producing children of their own and accumulating a lifetime of memories. Life is a beautiful and challenging experience that everyone should have a right to, no matter how small or hidden away they may be.
