Awesome Australian Marriage Equality Ad

This is a truly beautiful advertisement from Australia.  If you're a human being, and if you've ever been in love with another human being, it will be impossible for this not to tug at your heartstrings.   
Great ad!

When Does Life Begin?

"Every biologist would agree that life begins at conception."
I heard that once during a debate, said by a passionate anti-choice person. Although passionate, he is also wrong.  I'm a biologist and I do not agree that life begins at conception, nor do any of my current colleagues, nor did any of my professors in univeristy, nor do the vast majority of doctors where I'm from.  This isn't because we hate life or babies, it's because the evidence to back up such a claim simply isn't there.
