All of the tenets of the “Law of Charity” are now conceded by the pro life movement to be valid and few arguments remain. The pro life movement in general has admitted to killing born life and all that remains to be discussed are peripheral issues. The following admissions are jointly agreed to and are no longer an issue for debate:
1. There are in fact 7 billion +/- born people on Earth and all are dying. They are dying at 1.8 per second (57 million per year) and are being born at the rate of 4.2 per second ( 137 million per year). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_population
2. There are only two forms of human life on Earth that can be saved, born life and unborn life.
3. Each individual has a choice, they may save one of the 7 billion born people that are dying or an unborn zygote/embryo/fetus.
4. One may pass a law that says only born people shall be saved or they may pass a law that says only unborn life shall be saved or they may pass a law that says both born and unborn must be saved. Regardless in the end each individual must choose whom to save, the born or the unborn.
5. It is impossible to save all human life, all life dies. New life that will begin dying, after birth occurs, is being born at more than twice the rate of those dying. So there will always be more people dying than can be saved.
6. Each person that claims to save life must choose whom they will save, either the born person or the unborn person. No person or group of people can save all born life.
7. If a person chooses to save a born life, an unborn life will die, if they choose to save an unborn life, a born life will die.
8. An unborn life may or may not live to birth, the odds of living to birth are less than 30 percent for each fertilized oocyte. http://miscarriage.about.com/od/riskfactors/a/miscarriage-statistics.htm
9. A person may use triage to save the most life possible.
10. A person that chooses to save “Life at conception” will fail to save life 70 percent of the time.
11. A person that chooses to save born life has a greater chance of saving life than a person that chooses to save a “life at conception.”
The issue that remains to be resolved is as follows:
It is my contention that the pro life movement is intentionally letting innocent born life die in an effort to force the birth of fetuses. The only issue that remains is whether or not the loss of life caused by the pro life movement is intentional or unintentional. It is my contention that all points of the “Law of Charity” have been proved for more than 2 years and therefore the deaths caused by the pro life movement are in fact intentional deaths.
