Scientist describes conception, when “a new human being is defined which has never occurred before and will never occur again”

Scientist Jerome Lejeune, discoverer of down syndrome:

“… Each of us has a unique beginning, the moment of conception… As soon as the 23 chromosomes carried by the sperm encounter the 23 chromosomes carried by the ovum, the whole information necessary and sufficient to spell out all the characteristics of the new being is gathered…

A new human being is defined which has never occurred before and will never occur again… [It] is not just simply a nondescript cell, or a “population” or loose “collection” of cells, but a very specialized individual…”

Jerome Lejeune,  A Symphony of the Preborn Child, part 2 (Hagerstown, Maryland, 1989)

Quoted in Rick DeMichele,  Abortion: Come Now, and Let Us Reason Together (Meridian, Idaho: DayStar Publishing, 2010) p.15.
