This is the kind of thinking I'm trying to get away from.

In what sense is the mother-copy destroyed? All of it's original 
molecules are still there (albeit randomly distributed between the two 
daughter-bodies), all of the information is preserved (x2, now), so 
where is the destruction? I see none at all.
