Pope John Paul II has said the beginning of human life takes place __________.

b. three weeks after conception
THE ANSWER IS . A when the egg is fertilized . thats when the new little person has all the genetic makeup it will ever have. The pope also teaches that even if we are not sure when human life begins, the mere possibility of human life would still lead us to protect the fetus. (If a hunter thought there were any chance that the creature behind a bush might be a person instead of a deer, he would be morally obligated not to shoot.).
