Guest Post: The Economic Basics of Abortion

August 28th, 2008 by Halli

From David Ripley, Idaho Chooses Life

An interesting article appeared on WorldNetDaily yesterday. Written by Dr. Arthur Robinson, it was entitled, “The One and Only Solution to America’s Energy Problem”. The article is a very interesting primer on the fundamentals of energy as an economic commodity and worth reading to prepare for the coming “fairy dust storm” on alternative energy sources – a religious principle with Liberals going back to the first Earth Day. (And, despite many Democrat opportunities, a policy with virtually no concrete advancement for that entire period; the reasons for which will become clear after reading Robinson’s article).

Obviously the debate over alternative energy is largely unrelated to abortion.

But a point made by Robinson deep in his commentary refutes one of the darkest arguments used to advance abortion in a selfish culture: Too many people cause economic hardship and deprivation for those of us already here.

Quoting from Julian Simon, a renowned economist in his book “The Ultimate Resource 2”, Robison asserts:

“Simon describes and verifies a fundamental economic law. Each human being who is born, on average, produces more resources than he consumes –IF he possesses the freedom to do so.”

Thus it is the individual human being who is key to general economic security and prosperity.

The greatest natural resource in the world will not be found in an oil field, a gold mine or even a farmer’s field; rather, our economic hope will be found in a mother’s womb.

If this is so – then one can only wonder how much treasure and blessing has been destroyed during America’s long experiment with a freedom that grants certain persons license to kill certain other persons. It is an experiment for which we are all paying a huge, if yet untallied, price.
