Also, just because an embryo is less developed than the adult they will once become does not mean they have fewer rights. A 6 year old is less developed than a 16 year old, but that does not mean that older children have more rights than their younger siblings. Reasons as to why many people condone the act of abortion is because those considering it say it is because of rape, health risks, and because they cannot live the life they wanted to.
