There is no doubt, scientifically, that a "fertilized human egg" is, in reality, a human zygote or one-cell human person.  The human zygote soon divides into two cells and is then called a human embryo.  To use the term "fertilized human egg" is an attempt to depersonalize and marginalize the human individual person at his or her earliest stage of development.
