Is a zygote a “person”?

The Personhood Alliance is a conservative Christian organization which describes its goals as:

“the recognition and protection of the God-given, inalienable right to life of all human beings as legal persons, at every stage of their biological development and in every circumstance”

If successful, a zygote would have the same set of human rights as an adult human being. A zygote is a single cell that results from the fusion of an egg and sperm cell. Many non-conservatives are concerned that the kind of policy this organization seeks could have a negative impact on women’s health services and even transportation law.

What is your opinion on the goals of this organization?
