Why would the rights of the individual not be extended to conception?

G-d's soul installation process is a bit antiquated. They're working on an upgrade but at the moment the requisition isn't received until almost a month after conception. And then there's scheduling, delivery, etc. Not to mention Ralph, that assh-le in the quartermaster's office. If you want him to move quicker than a slug you have to buy him donuts.

It's my understanding that they currently guarantee a soul by the middle of the second trimester or the next one is free.

Seriously though, scripture teaches us that the way baby-making works is that the man plants a seed in the woman's womb that grows... kinda like a tulip bulb. So technically conception is actually prior to the baby-making activity. That's why it is forbidden in Jewish scripture to "spill seed".

So, if we are going to use religious doctrine for law, you could be charged with murder for masturbating.
