In this paper, the authors discuss their clinical approach and evidence supporting the concept that each human being is unique–different from its mother–from the moment of conception.
Dr. Jerome Lejeune, a French pediatrician and geneticist, pointed out that each human being is unique–different from its mother–from the moment of conception. In this paper, we discuss our clinical approach and evidence supporting that concept. We discuss how our findings support the view that mothers and their offspring are separate entities from conception onward.
