Is your complaint with the phrase, "individual organisms"? Identical twins or triplets are not individual organisms at the moment of conception. One cell cannot contain more than one human. Any definition of "human being" MUST include being able to quantify the number of humans being discussed, because human beings are by definition individual and distinct. At the moment of conception, you cannot differentiate between single, twins, triplets, etc. This fact alone proves that the fertilized egg cannot be considered as a human being.
