Not necessarily.

Yes, a sperm cell or an egg cell could join together to create life, eventually. The variable of human intervention is what I'm concerned with, however.

Without [further] human intervention, the acorn, the egg, and the zygote would be much more likely to grow to maturity, successfully. (And the silk actually requires human intervention, as I doubt that a silkworm has the cognitive capacity or a good reason to make it into a sweater...)

Anyway, an individual sperm or egg cell, left alone to grow on its own would not grow into a baby. That's not how it works, obviously. If humans intervene, so to speak, there is a chance that the two cells will pair up, leading to conception, pregnancy, and birth.

In other words, if two people decide to partake in an activity that has a chance to bring life into the world, then (after finding out that the zygote has been formed) they choose to prevent the life from having a chance to grow and form, they have "killed" a baby.

Simple as that.

Actually, maybe I should clarify.

Once an egg is cracked it has lost its potential to become a chicken. You have "killed" a chicken. A ball of silk has the potential to become a sweater (assuming that you choose to make it into a sweater, that is). The second that you pluck an acorn from the dirt and move it to a new location where it could not possibly grow into a tree, it loses all potential to grow. That means that YOU made the tree unable to reach maturity. If not for your intervention, the acorn would've had much more potential to grow.

Lastly, a zygote (from the second of conception) has the potential to become a baby.

Therefore: Abortion = The Theft of Potential.
