My point is simply that if twinning is determined to occur, it cannot be later than fertilization. If environmental factors are also necessary, and these are not present at fertilization but obtain later, the determination to twinning at fertilization will be conditional only. In other words, it will be the case that the embryo is determined intrinsically to twin on condition that certain environmental factors obtain at some later time. 26 For simplicity I am taking it that all biophysical causation is deterministic.
26 For simplicity I am taking it that all biophysical causation is deterministic. The point I am making 27 28 29 30 31 32 19 can be enlarged to take account of probabilistic causation. Again, omitting considerations of probability, I take it that a biophysical event is undetermined just in case it is random. For simplicity’s sake I allow for the possibility of some random event prior to fertilization that, say, causes the development of a gamete, which itself joins with another gamete at fertilization, and where twinning later follows, such that we could still legitimately say that the twinning was determined even though some random event existed prior to fertilization.
19 The argument from potential In his unreal mental experiment, Tooley imagines that in the future it will be possible to inject kittens with a chemical that will enable them to develop intellectual capacities similar to those of human beings: on the basis of his construction of the proper subject of a right to life,20 Tooley concludes that these ‘intelligent kittens’ would have a right to life. However, it would not be seriously wrong to refrain from injecting the chemical in a kitten and kill him: besides, on the basis of the principle of moral symmetry between actions and omissions,21 it would not be seriously wrong even to interfere with the ongoing process.
