Legal Rights for Embryos

Groups in various states are proposing legal rights for embryos. According to the story at the Pew Forum:
Opening a new front in their assault on abortion, activists in half a dozen states are preparing ballot referendums that would grant "personhood" and constitutional rights to embryos from the moment of conception...

If the embryo is declared a person under a state's constitution, the reasoning goes, the termination of its existence must be considered murder.
This is probably a story to keep up with.
