Well one thing about your view is that it seems to provide a clear line of demarcation. And without some clear line of demarcation, it seems that we would be on a slippery slope  and we could end up in a very scary place.

Yes.  And I think it makes more sense to separate the issue of when the developing human being acquires human rights from the issues as to when it is capable of suffering and how much. It seems to me we have a duty to prevent any fetus that may be capable of fear or pain from suffering, but that that should be a different question from when we accord it human rights.

I have a Darwin-debased mind.

That "scary place" is called reality, with its many shades of gray.
