    Fertility procedures can result in the creation of many embryos that are never used by patients.  They are stored for a period of time and then, if the patient never uses them, they are destroyed.  How would legislation that asserts personhood for embryos affect physicians who perform invitro fertilization?  My guess would be that most doctors wouldn't care to find out.  They'll just stop performing that service or move their practice to another state.  Obviously this angle of the issue hasn't been given much (any?) consideration at all.
