The Against Argument (Person):

The fetus is definitely not a person. This can be seen when contrasting the differences between our capabilities as physically independent people, and the fetus' capabilities. A physically independent person can feel the pain of an injury, whereas this fact is unknown when considering the fetus. A physically independent person can express and feel love, whereas this fact is also unknown when considering a fetus. And a physically independent person can think and has a mind of its own, whereas this fact is, yet again, unknown when considering a fetus. Therefore, since these facts are unknown, how can one consider it a person if it cannot feel what a person feels?
