Spectrum Argument for Abortion, Revisited

Spectrum Argument for Abortion, Revisited

The difference between newborns, teens, and adults is negligible
compared to the single cell on the other side of the spectrum, which has
nothing that we commonly think of as a trait of personhood. The
commonality across the spectrum is that they all have eukaryotic cells
with Homo sapiens DNA. That’s it. That’s not something that
many of us get misty-eyed about. Very little sentimental poetry is
written about the kind of DNA in the cells of one’s beloved.

Very much worth reading, if you're interested in the abortion debate.
