From a purely scientific basis, you have unique DNA from conception. DNA to specify hair, eye color, facial structure, susceptibility to diseases, etc., etc.

The truth is that we don't know when life really, really, begins.

I'm not sure how you reconcile these two statements. If life does not "really really begin" with a unique human DNA, what do you call what happens at the moment a unique human DNA is created?

Well, there's some scientific uncertainty as to when human life began, --- I lean towards 1,750,000 years ago in the Olduvai Gorge in eastern Africa. However there is no debate that human life is transmitted to a new generation every time a human ovum is successfully fertilized by a human sperm.
