A good Biblical answer based on Genesis is that life begins at first breath...ie, when God gave matter a soul. And that actually was the standard from some hundreds of years.

Nobody is gonna go with that answer nowadays. But if your part of the inerrant Bible crowd and claim men rule because Eve was created as Adam's helpmate (and allowed evil to enter the world! Hello!) then it's probably the one you need to go with.
