Embryology textbooks

“Human development begins at fertilization, when a sperm fuses with an oocyte to form a single cell, the zygote. This highly specialized, totipotent cell (capable of giving rise to any cell type) marks the beginning of each of us as a unique individual.”
– “The Developing Human: Clinically Oriented Embryology”, 10th edition.

Peter Singer, who supports elective abortion (and the killing of newborns) writes “Whether a being is a member of a given species is something that can be determined scientifically, by an examination of the nature of the chromosomes in the cells of living organisms. In this sense, there is no doubt that from the first moments of its existence an embryo conceived from human sperm and egg is a human being.” (Practical Ethics, 2nd ed., p. 85-86).

Wayne Sumner, who also supports elective abortion, writes, “A human fetus is not a non-human animal; it is a stage of human being.” (Sumner, Abortion and Moral Theory, p. 10.)
