Male masturbation kills sperm that could become intelligent conscious life

Over 500 million sperm are released when an average healthy male ejaculates. Even if only around 200 of those sperm would have reached a females egg, that is 200 cells that could have become a conscious human life if they were not wasted in masturbation.

Are you joking? Are you just trying to practice your debating skills by taking on a difficult position? Anyways...just to prod the question with a pointy stick...

Masturbation is perfectly normal. While it is true that sperm can create life, you also have to keep in mind that they are just blueprints for a life. They are nothing without an egg to complement them, amd even after combining, they are initially just forming a batch of cells similar to a tumor. Is a cancerous tumor a human? Nope. Any small collection of cells is just a small collection of cells...not a human. I am my brain. If you took my brain out of my body and placed it in a new one, I would have a new body, and my old shell would just be a discarded wrapper. So comparing even a batch of cells to a thinking being is not really feasible. Also, when you don't waste the seed on a tissue and instead "hold it in"...you still waste it by not using it in intercourse. No matter what...those potential humans will never happen. Are you going to say I am immoral if I don't have sex whenever I have replenished my sperm levels? *Edit - I stated that "Masturbation is perfectly normal". While true, it feels kind of randomly placed at the beginning of my argument. It also feels lonely, as I meant to highlight how I felt this question to be religiously motivated, with the OP viewing masturbation as abnormal. This comment was more of a side note.
