It's just a clump of cells.

Right now thousands of people are waiting to live. They are frozen in embryo banks or being used in experiments. They are our daughters and sons but we treat them as things until we decide we want them to grow. Then and only then are they allowed to enter society and become human persons, as though personhood is something we can bestow rather than something inherent.

Now there is a movie that touches on these ideas 'Never Let Me Go'. Go and have a look -

Never Let Me Go
