Holy Cells

The human body is made of trillions of cells, but for allegedly religious reasons, some people single out gametes and fertilised eggs as holy as if they were fully-formed beings with rights surpassing those in whose bodies they live. Oddly, their religions do not even acknowledge the existence of cells.

I don’t think these people have any idea how small cells are. It makes no sense to kill a fully formed human made of trillions of cells for the benefit of one cell. It is sillier than annihilating the population of earth to save a tadpole.
