Erin, I like this idea that each egg has the ability to produce life, but let's turn it on the guy. Each sperm they produce has the ability to produce life, so in this sense, using a condom is possibly ending life as the sperm doesn't have a chance to fulfill its potential. Also sperm discarded in other matters ;-)
you are correct!

I also post the issue of "putting down" animals in this thread because it is almost the same issue. That is a live being that we know loves, feels pain, thinks, etc. etc. But, we as people, have the right to put animals down when they are violent or too sick or have a horrible life. Now, I only get rescues from shelters and I know many feel the same way. Not only that, but they are completely dependent beings....they depend on us to take care of them, as their owners. How is doing this okay, but not aborting a fetus that has no place in the world yet?

Who are we to decide that some life is worth more than other life. How can we say that just because it's a human life that it is more important than a dogs/cats/or any cow that produced a really hot leather bag or coat?

in a way, yeah.

when we chop down weeds or pluck vegetables from the garden, we are killing, by your definition, a life. it was living, and now, it is no longer living. these vegetables and plants do not feel pain, in the sense that we humans know.

there's a huge difference between something that is living and enjoying a life - they are definitely not the same. if they were, we'd regard carrots as highly as people.
Animals feel joy......

Ahem:

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.

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

CHILDREN:
Every sperm is wanted.
Every sperm is good.
Every sperm is needed
In your neighbourhood.

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

MEN:
Every sperm is sacred.
Every sperm is great.
WOMEN:
If a sperm is wasted,...
CHILDREN:
...God get quite irate.

PRIEST:
Every sperm is sacred.
BRIDE and GROOM:
Every sperm is good.
NANNIES:
Every sperm is needed...
CARDINALS:
...In your neighbourhood!

CHILDREN:
Every sperm is useful.
Every sperm is fine.
FUNERAL CORTEGE:
God needs everybody's.
MOURNER #1:
Mine!
MOURNER #2:
And mine!
CORPSE:
And mine!

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

EVERYONE:
Every sperm is sacred.
Every sperm is good.
Every sperm is needed
In your neighbourhood.

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