  •  What about the millions of little sperm that (4.00)
    fail to meet their potential, who is fighting for them? What about the thousands of ova that languish, unfertilized, flushed down the toilet in the sadness that is a menstrual period; perhaps the saddest slough in the world. Who will speak for the ova?

      Imagine the chanting now..

      lord knows there wont be chanting such as "Sperm Sperm Sperm!!!" them little guys .. well unless your VERRRRYYYY fundy and dont ascribe to those sorts of temptations and each of your precious little guys have a shot at an ovum (as if!  if you dont use them you loose them, reabsorbed, lost in other ways.. what "moral" absurdism)

      Reminds me of a little song I think is immensely apropo and which goes through my head often when I htink of this whole debate and also the cloning debate:

      Every Sperm Is Sacred

      DAD:
      There are Jews in the world.
      There are Buddhists.
      There are Hindus and Mormons, and then
      There are those that follow Mohammed, but
      I've never been one of them.

      I'm a Roman Catholic,
      And have been since before I was born,
      And the one thing they say about Catholics is:
      They'll take you as soon as you're warm.

      You don't have to be a six-footer.
      You don't have to have a great brain.
      You don't have to have any clothes on. You're
      A Catholic the moment Dad came,

      Because

      Every sperm is sacred.
      Every sperm is great.
      If a sperm is wasted,
      God gets quite irate.

      CHILDREN:
      Every sperm is sacred.
      Every sperm is great.
      If a sperm is wasted,
      God gets quite irate.

      Anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job. - Douglas Adams

        "Every Sperm Is Sacred", Lyrics by Michael Palin and Terry Jones.

        There are Jews in the world, there are Buddists,
        There are Hindus and Mormons and then
        There are those that follow Mohammad, but
        I've never been one of them.

        I'm a Roman Catholic,
        And have been since before I was born,
        And the one thing they say about Catholics is
        They'll take you as soon as you're warm.

        You don't have to be a six footer,
        You don't have to have a great brain,
        You don't have to have any clothes on,
        You're a Catholic the moment Dad came, because

        Every sperm is sacred,
        Every sperm is great,
        If a sperm is wasted,
        God gets quite irate.

        Every sperm is sacred,
        Every sperm is great,
        If a sperm is wasted,
        God gets quite irate.

        Let the heathen spill theirs,
        On the dusty ground,
        God shall make them pay for
        Each sperm that can't be found.

        Every sperm is wanted,
        Every sperm is good,
        Every sperm is needed,
        In your neighborhood.

        Hindu, Taoist, Morman,
        Spill theirs just anywhere,
        But God loves those who treat their
        Semen with more care.

        Every sperm is sacred,
        Every sperm is great,
        If a sperm is wasted,
        God gets quite irate.

        Every sperm is sacred,
        Every sperm is good,
        Every sperm is needed,
        In your neighborhood.

        Every sperm is useful,
        Every sperm is fine,
        God needs everybody's,
        Mine, and mine, and mine.

        Let the pagans spill theirs,
        O'er mountain, hill and plain.
        God shall strike them down for
        Each sperm that's spilt in vain.

        Every sperm is sacred,
        Every sperm is good,
        Every sperm is needed,
        In your neighborhood.

        Every sperm is sacred,
        Every sperm is great,
        If a sperm is wasted,
        God gets quite irate.

        Anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job. - Douglas Adams
