I still haven't heard any comprehensible arguments for how a sperm cell stuck in a egg cell counts as a legal person whose rights triumph those of the mother.

There are relatively few people who think that way, though. I have absolutely no problem with an abortion 5 minutes after conception. I have a big problem with an abortion 5 minutes before birth. And I think most people would agree with me on both of those. The problem is that between those two extremes, there is a continuum, with no obvious point where you can draw a line and say it's OK on this side and not on that side. It's a real difficulty, and that's why people are still arguing about it, and probably always will argue about it.
