I used this argument once and thought it was really well done, but the Christian woman I told it to just seemed like her brain short-circuited:

If your stance is that a baby is a human being from the point of conception, please think about the following:

Ultraviolet light is used in many applications to kill bacteria and other microorganisms. It works by damaging the DNA to the point where the organism simply dies.

Many women have experience erratic periods, where they have a period appear out of nowhere, like in the middle of their cycle. Many scientists are beginning to feel that these "ghost periods" are actually miscarriages of VERY young babies, those that have just begun attaching to the uterine wall. The embryo dies and is flushed from the body in much the same manner as a period.

So, it's highly possible that when a woman has a "ghost period", she's actually having a miscarriage. Without knowing the cause, one could say it's highly possible that the miscarriage is being caused by such benign things as sunlight...or alcohol...or even stress.

Now, since there's absolutely know way to tell for sure if a woman can be pregnant in the first month of a pregnancy, and we want to take the stance that a baby must be given rights from the moment of conception, the only conclusion we must take is that all sexually active women must assume that, at any given time, they may be pregnant. It's the only way to make sure that baby's rights are not infringed upon.

Therefore, we must take some drastic measures immediately:
1) All women must wear thick, heavy clothes that cover their entire bodies, to be safe. A burka would work. Exceptions may clearly be made when the woman is indoors.
2) Women must keep their bodies pristine at all times, removing anything that may harm a baby. So, no alcohol, smoking, caffeine, etc. Never. Many countries currently have such laws/rules.
3) Stress can be bad for the baby as well, so clearly a woman having a job is just impossible. Driving is stressful, so that is forbidden as well. Many countries are currently doing this as well.

So, if you really feel that a baby has rights from the moment of conception, it would behoove you to go to a country ruled by Sharia Law, as it would suit you famously.
