1. Biologically, it's an individual human when the zygote forms. Our law says it isn't a person yet, but some of us believe it is.

2. In the case of Individual Rights, they should both be equal. The woman's rights are more important in cases of rape, or if it endangers her life. I don't think her convenience alone qualifies as the right to terminate another individual.
