    My inclination is to believe that the obsession with blastocysts is part of the reaction against "Teh 1960s," sexual liberation, and so on.  

    But there's also an instinct-level thing going on here, which is that some humans are hard-wired for "R-selection" reproductive strategy (have lots of offspring, invest relatively little effort in raising each one) and others are hard-wired for "K-selection" reproductive strategy (have few offspring, invest a lot of effort in raising each one).  IMHO, R/K-selection theory is the key to the kingdom of a bunch of Republican policies.

    "Minus two votes for the Republican" equals "plus one vote for the Democrat." Arithmetic doesn't care about their feelings either!
