So this is not a pro-life vs. pro-choice debate, because I'm not arguing whether killing an embryo is justified or not, I'm arguing whether it is a person. So, the definition of a person is "a human being regarded as an individual" (https://en.oxforddictionaries.com...). Humans are simply a species of animals (https://en.oxforddictionaries.com...). So a person is a particular animal that is an individual. An embryo has a set of human DNA and is made of living cells, so it seems like a human, and since it is a human it's not part of the mother, so it seems like an individual. Let's see.

Con

embryos are not people because they are still in their mom's body; also black people embryos are yummy because they give us protein and energy

black embryos are food for polar bears in an age of climate change and overpopulation
