Conception days should be a thing! The start of a new life should be celebrated!

I agree. Birth is simply a dramatic change of environment, nothing changed about who you are. Conception is what really matters. The very day we came into existence. It’s the day we became who we are and who we always will be until our death. And it’s the first day we should be protected under the law as a person of equal value to all others.

There are, however, two problems. One is determining what that actual day was. For others, it would be clear what that day was because they may have been conceived through rape. Although their lives are just as valuable as anyone else’s, it would be a stark reminder to their mother of that painful day. Unfortunately, Conception Day will have to wait until society understands that a new human being starts at fertilization and that the manner of their conception is irrelevant to the value of their life.
