Lee, after reading your paragraph above, I realized you are absolutely
right.  I have decided to become a super radical anti-abortionist right to
lifer.  As the sperm approaches the egg, the pair represent a sacred
potential human life.  The same argument still works even before they
actually approach, so I must conclude that it is murderously immoral to not
copulate at every opportunity.
