Have you ever raised chickens? Did you ever accidentally crack an egg into the frying pan after a rooster got to it? It is kind of icky. You might see a bit of blood on the yolk. The whole yolk might be redish-brown. Gross. But one thing is certain; that is no chicken. At some point, before the chick pokes it's beak out of the shell, it is a viable baby bird. You might even have to crack the shell and help the little fellow out. But that bloody yolk that landed in the frying pan is not a chicken. The notion that, in humans, an egg is- from the moment of fertilization- entitled to the the same legal and constitutional protections as the mother is… preposterous. A fertalized egg is not a person. It is a potential person, just as the bloody yolk in the frying pan was a potential bird.
