Powerful Ignorance Buys Power

I've been reading the thoughts of three currently powerful politicians about when they think human life begins.
From Secretary of State Clinton:
"I believe that the potential for life begins at conception," said Mrs Clinton.
"But for me, it is not only about the potential life, but the other lives involved."

From President Obama:
Mr Obama said he did not know whether life begins with conception.
"This is something that I have not, I think, come to a firm resolution on... I don't presume to know the answer to that question," he said.
"What I know... is that there is something extraordinarily powerful about potential life and that that has a moral weight to it that we take into consideration when we're having these debates."

From former President Clinton:
In a recent interview with CNN’s Sanjay Gupta, former President Bill Clinton repeatedly referred to human embryos as “unfertilized,” adding that, if they were fertilized, they would “become human beings.” (emphasis added)

Why are they so ignorant?

Remember Dr. Evil's pinky finger:
Perhaps for evil power?
(Duh note: in America, power=money)

(May I suggest that they read up on real science (as opposed to political science that is changed by money) at the (usually Atheist) Libertarians for Life science page.)
As demonstrated above, scientifically there is absolutely no question whatsoever that the immediate product of fertilization is a newly existing human being. A human zygote is a human being. It is not a "potential" or a "possible" human being. It's an actual human being — with the potential to grow bigger and develop its capacities.
