A blastocyst or fetus cannot make a decision.

Neither can a new born. Does that give people the right to kill a new born?

To assign 'personhood' to a fetus is simply silly, and makes no sense at all.

What if your pregnant wife was killed by some monster, which in turn killed the baby. There was no crime committed against the child she was carrying?

Then the flip side, if a woman has other children at home, and a decision has to be made in an emergency where one had to choose between the woman's life or the child she is carrying, what is the right decision. It depends on who you ask, and there is no wrong or right answer, but the Catholic Church thinks there is only one right answer, the baby is chosen.

I am just playing devil's advocate here. Calling people stupid and heartless no matter which side of the issue they are on is painting with a very broad brush.
