Two Past Presidents of the ACOG say an embryo is “alive, human, and unique”

By Sarah Terzo

Sixty physicians, including two past presidents of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology and the former president of the American Academy of Neurology, wrote a letter to President Ronald Reagan in the 1980s that read in part:

“The developing fetus is not a subhuman species with a different genetic composition…[T]he embryo is alive, human, and unique in the special environmental support required for that stage of human development.”
