    "Embryos, Four-Dimensionalism and Moral Status." Persons, Moral Worth and Embryos: A Critical Analysis of Pro-Choice Arguments from Philosophy, Law and Science ed. Steve Napier. Philadelphia: National Catholic Bioethics Center.   Some would argue that human embryos aren’t persons and are therefore of a lower moral status, one which doesn’t confer the right to life.
