Well, the soul is the animating force behind a creature. All animals, and even plants, have a soul. The human soul happens to be a spirit as well, whereas animals and plants etc. do not have a spirit. So, being that a fetus, at conception, is animated, it would be only logical to say that the fetus has a soul. Being that said fetus is a human fetus, it would have a human soul. Being that human souls are spirits, the fetus would be a true human in essence.

Human souls are made of spirit.

Are you making an argument or simply agreeing with me?

I think he is agreeing with you as far as the part you quoted goes. Though I for one don't like the language of "made of spirit" only because it sounds like spirit is some generic substance you can fashion an angel, or a human soul or whatnot out of.
