Brigham Young on when the spirit enters the body

This quote from Brigham Young seems very relevant to the modern issue of abortion
"They [Adam and Eve] were now prepared, as we are, to form bodies or tabernacles for the reception of pure and holy spirits. When the body is prepared, at the proper time, the spirit enters the tabernacle, and all the world of mankind in their reflections and researches must come to this conclusion, for the fact is they can come to no other—that when the mother feels life there is an evidence that the spirit from heaven has entered the tabernacle. " (Brigham Young, "Philoosphy of Man", JD 18:257)
