Exposing Myths or Exposing Your Own Ignorance?

I came across this list of "Top 10 Anti-Choice Myths" by Tom Head at and thought some of you might enjoy it, especially the first myth and the answer to it.
1) "Human life begins at conception."
False. Human life actually begins prior to conception, because each sperm and egg cell is a living organism....
Don't you just love a myth-exposing expose filled with such utter nonsense?

And Tom Head isn't just some random pro-choice person either. According to his online bio, he's the secretary for Mississippi NOW and is an active member of the ACLU. The ACLU of Florida even posted this list on their website.

Again, the list claims that sperm and egg are living organisms and there isn't anyone at the ACLU of Florida headquarters who realizes how ridiculous it is to claim sperm and egg are living organisms. Did no one there take a basic human biology class in high school?

Head's list also has some great strawmen for him to take down. For example, copy and paste (with quotation marks) myths #4, #6, #10 into google.
