The city council of the city of Wilmington, Delaware, USA has just passed a resolution (#12-02, on March 1, 2012) calling for every human sperm and every human egg to have the full set of rights to which each human citizen is entitled. This would instantly increase the population of the city of Delaware from its current 70,851 to well over 100,000,000,000. The resolution declares, in part:
WHEREAS, each “egg person” and each “sperm person” should be deemed equal in the eyes of the government and be subject to the same laws and regulations as any other dependent minor, and be protected against abuse, neglect, or abandonment by their parent or guardian; and
WHEREAS, laws should be enacted by all legislative bodies in the United States to promote equal representation, and should potentially include laws in defense of “personhood”, forbidding every man from destroying his semen.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF WILMINGTON, that the City Council requests that our Delaware General Assembly, State legislatures across the country, and the United States Congress address these “equality” issues and enact any necessary legislation for the preservation of equal rights.
