reviewed by Anne Barbeau Gardiner

A descendant of South Indian Brahmins, who holds degrees in physics and applied mathematics, and is a member of the ACLU, Feminists for Life, Amnesty International, and PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), Vasu Murti claims to show from a purely “rational, secular” viewpoint, “apart from religion,” that human life begins at conception, a point he illustrates with photos.
