When does life begin in womb?

What is life? Does life in a human being begin it at conception? Life in the womb begins when the fetus has its own blood which Scripture calls as life. This happens when the fetus is after 2 weeks from conception. Hence, any form of abortion after 2 weeks is murder of an innocent life. However, IVF treatments for infertile couples usually stop with implanting or destroying or freezing blastocysts which is around day 5, when they don’t have life. Hence, life does not begin with conception but rather, when the fetus has its own blood, that is life.
