Well according to Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood, "If, however, a contraceptive is not used and the sperm meets the ovule and development begins, any attempt at removing it or stopping its further growth is called abortion."

So, even she admitted that what they would be doing in this situation ought properly be called an abortion.

there aren't any human characteristics in a blastocyst.

Well sure except for of course the fact that that blastocyst is not "a blastocyst". I believe what you're talking about is a human being in the embryonic stage of development. What this means is that if you do nothing other than provide the necessities for continued human life (such as oxygen, water, and nutrients), then in approximately 9 months that "blastocyst" will be an "infant". By that I mean of course a human being in the infant stage of development.
