A fertilized egg, an embryo has the POTENTIALITY of developing a brain that has the capacity to sustain the neurological  functions to enable life, it has the potential for the ability to draw a breath, not a GUARANTEE. A fertilized egg/embryo may become a miscarriage,an abnormal growth (molar pregnancy) an ectopic pregnancy, a still born or a living baby that may thrive or perish. The potentiality is being removed not an actuality.

A potentiality has no rights

The woman IS an actuality her rights are already in place, the right to bodily autonomy/integrity has already been granted to her. To grant rights to a potentiality means to REMOVE her rights.

Are rights so inconsequential they can be cast aside on a religious whim? Which religion should have this ability to strip the rights from a free citizen?
Should they only be granted this ability over women? or are there rights they may strip from a man as well?    
Religions frequently change their stance when society adopts a greater understanding of morality, or when science reveals a greater understanding of the world around us. Must a woman's continued rights remain in question until such a time? 

Every one has a right to decide what health risks they themselves are willing to take with their own body, and make no mistake even today pregnancy does still carry a risk as does the act of child birth. 

A woman is already a person, not a potential person. She is not the property of another to be ordered into being  a brood mare, an incubator, nor a mobile life support system. She is not a chattel held hostage to another's whim, granted rights only when it suits a third party's agenda

How can a country consider its self to be a "free" nation when a persons rights can be stripped away.and she can be forced into sustaining a potentiality through to actuality against her own best interests? at risk to her own health? at risk to her emotional well being?  

Who are you to tell her what risks she should be willing to take?
By what right do you demand the ability to tell her what pain she must endure? Who gave you this right?

Yes every one agrees that abortion should be a last resort, should occur as infrequently as is humanly possible

But this is best achieved by working WITH women, not by stripping them of their rights and turning them into second class citizens, not by shaming and punishing them.

Education, affordable accessible birth control, and offering realistic options are the most economic and the most humane way to achieve this goal

Is this not The United States of America? land of the free? land of hope? a land that cares about the rights of ALL its citizens?
