There are several scientific laws that impact how society should view legal abortion. Those laws are:
The Law of New Life
The Law of Life
The Law of Conception
The Law of Charity
The Law of Preclusion
The Law of Consent
1) The Law of New Life: All new life begins with old DNA.
2) The Law of Life: It is impossible at conception to tell if a human life will survive through birth.
3) The Law of Conception: Most conceptions end in abortion.
4) The Law of Charity: There are more people dying than can be saved.
5) The Law of Preclusion: In the first nine months of a pregnancy a forced pregnancy precludes an intentional pregnancy.
6) The Law of Consent: Any consent to a sexual act by a woman that could lead to pregnancy is implied consent to abortion.
*** End of laws and beginning of theory ***
The scientific laws I list above, that impact abortion, also support theories that may control the morality of abortion. There is a difference in a theory and a law. Please see the definitions of what comprises a law that follow these theories.
Laws simply state the facts; theories are based on the facts. I will give a brief explanation of a few theories that are supported by the laws outlined above:
The Law of New Life: All new life starts with old DNA.
Old DNA and new DNA can be altered by natural processes and outside forces. All new DNA is created by old DNA. The Theory of New Life states: The process of conception is controlled by the old DNA that creates the new DNA. The new life is mitigated by the old DNA. The information needed to build new DNA is contained in the old DNA. The new Life can only contain the possibilities that are provided with the old DNA’s data as modified by natural processes and outside forces.
The Law of Life: It is impossible at conception to tell if a human life will survive through birth.
The Theory of Life states: It is impossible to know if a fetus will live until the DNA of life has run its entire code. For example if a programmer writes a code and runs the code, he cannot know if there is an error in the code until it has run in its entirety. Therefore one cannot know if a zygote will in fact be a baby until it is born. If one treats a zygote as a baby and gives it the rights of a human, the best they can possibly hope for is that they will be right somewhere between 30 percent and 99.5 percent of the time that it will be born.
The Law of Conception: Most conceptions end in abortion.
The Theory of Conception states: Abortion is a natural and expected consequence of sex. It therefore cannot be true that there is “life at conception”. In fact it is usually death at conception. Any attempt to enforce “life at conception” will therefore waste resources that could be used to save life.
The Law of Charity: There are more people dying than can be saved.
Simply put there are as many as 57 million people that die each year. The Theory of Choice states: A person must choose to either save a zygote/embryo/fetus or a born person. Every choice to save one life simply allows another to die. Pro lifers simply choose to save fetuses and let children die. There is no “net” gain in life saved due to the fact that these laws limit when life can actually be saved. The greatest error of pro lifers is that by attempting to save a fetus, they are causing the death of more people than one would expect. For example if a person uses their charity to save a born child then the odds are, the child will live. But if they attempt to save a fetus the odds of saving the fetus at conception is only 30 percent and at birth only 99.5 percent. Most of the time, pro lifers waste resources that could be used to save life.
The Law of Preclusion: In the first nine months of a pregnancy a forced pregnancy precludes another pregnancy.
The Theory of Preclusion states: If a woman is forced to give birth to one child then for a period of nine months she cannot intentionally become pregnant with another child. As a single example, if a woman is raped a few days before her wedding and becomes pregnant, then for nine months she cannot become pregnant with her husband’s child. If her intent was to have her husband’s child after marriage then that becomes impossible. If she aborts the child of the rapist and immediately becomes pregnant by her husband, then there is no loss of life. If she keeps the rapist’s fetus there is no gain in life because she is denying life to her husband’s child. Now if the woman and husband can only afford one child, then they are stuck their entire life with the child of the rapist and denied the child of the husband. No life is saved by saving the rapist’s fetus and in fact the life of the wanted child is lost.
The Law of Consent: Any consent to a sexual act by a woman that could lead to pregnancy is implied consent to abortion.
It is generally accepted that as many as 50 to 75 percent of conceptions end in natural abortion. The Theory of Consent states: If a person intentionally has sex they are intentionally consenting to abort as many as 75 percent of their conceptions. A person can’t have sex without actual implied consent to abortion.
From Biology Online
noun, plural: laws
(general) A set of norms, which can be observed in both sociological and philosophical or semantic sense.
***Discussions about what is and is not a law***
“The rules of biology and science cannot be broken.
They are not artificial human-made laws. They are
natural laws that govern all life while living organisms
are evolving on our planet.
Finding fundamental organizing principles is the current intellectual front end of systems biology.
From a hydrogen atom to the whole cell level, organisms manage massively parallel and massively
interactive processes over several orders of magnitude of size. To manage this scale of informational
complexity it is natural to expect organizing principles that determine higher order behavior.
The first misconception about laws is that they must
be exception less. But this is far too strong; if we require
laws to be exception less, there are no, or very few, laws
– even in physics. Galileo’s law that all massive bodies
fall with constant acceleration irrespective of their mass
has many exceptions: snowflakes fall quite differently
from hailstones and with radically different accelerations.
