I heard about this story when it aired. Every single day the doctors had to decide whether or not to abandon the baby as hopeless. It's not a normal outcome in any sense.
Yet. But as technology advances...Total regression: sperm and egg are viable; masturbation and menstrual cycle are murder.
Sperm is not a developing human life. An egg is not a developing human life.
Combine the two bolded statements. One day, I may have children through an asexual process... you know... as technology advances.
Here's the difference: For a very long time, many, many fetuses have been viable since day one (in the womb). This is the case today. I'm not aware of any current asexual human reproduction.
