    man-made.  That's what gives them their status in contrast to the natural persons which are woman-made.  It is also the maleness of the fertilized egg which it is desired to provide with more status than it currently has.  How that will be reconciled with the fact that at birth and until age 18, the natural person has no human rights has not, IMHO, been completely addressed.
    If a fetus is a person but a baby isn't, that's going to raise some questions.  It may be necessary to extend human rights to children, even if that involves depriving parents of their property rights.
    And if humans at all stages of development are to be assigned human rights, then the point of making fertilized eggs special would be vitiated.
    If human rights make property rights disappear, than that might well be a stupendous achievement, rendering the individual more important than the state that claims him.
