So the destruction of embryos to harvest stem cells could be argued as murdering people in the name of science.

It's very hard to measure brain wave activity through a mother's womb because you can't put the electrodes on the embryo/fetus directly. So my question is at what point are we past the point of a woman's right to choose, because once the embryo/fetus has a soul I'd say the right to live trumps the right to choose.
