What do the statistics reveal?
In my previous post, King Solomon, Refugee Exodus, Laws, Abortion Factor, I stated I would explore the Abortion Factor Statistics. In this post I will examine what the statistics may or may not reveal.
Why? Because the primary purpose of any teacher of a Business Statistics is to make a person skeptical of what numbers actually reveal. The student is taught to question how the numbers were gathered, and what do they really reveal about an issue. In my opinion, the Abortion Factor Statistics reveal the root cause of all human folly. Why? Before I explain in my next and final post of this series, allow me to review the statistics in relation to statements I made in previous posts.
Reasons for Abortion
There are numerous reasons or motives for choosing whether to about a child or not. Some may be related to a person’s fear, rejection, laws, availability, health, social, youth, education, funding, poverty, religion, disease, drug addiction, hopelessness for the future trees of life,. etc. etc.
King Solomon also listed a number of vanities in his Ecclesiastes which a person may choose rather than to bear a child.
Consequences of Abortions
One positive result I pointed out in a previous post is the Germans are welcoming the refugees is because of the low birthrate in Germany. They need more people to maintain or expand their thriving economy. Economist all agree, more people spending will drive the prosperity of a nation to expand if there are opportunity for them to work for a livelihood.
There are also negative consequences for a nation when their best and brightest young leave for a better opportunity. For example, if a nation educates a person at the nation’s expense to be a doctor, nurse, scientist, or a trained technical skill, and the young person immigrates to the US for a better life or more affluent salary, the US benefits by in effect robbing the services and potential of the young would have benefited the nation they left
For example, in Africa during the recent Ebola crises, the shortage of skilled trained medical personnel to help control the spread of the disease.
There are addition negatives for a receiving nation if unskilled people remain in poverty and require welfare. The result will drain the financial resources or ability to expand or invest in their economy.
Current Comparison Statistics of the Results of Abortion and Immigration in the USA
Since abortion was legalized in 1973, 57,762,169 abortions have resulted in the USA.
Based on statements made in the news, the USA has granted legal citizenship since 1973 to approximately one million legal immigrants per year. That totals 42 million legal immigrants and if you add the supposed number of illegal immigrants of 10-15 million plus or minus, the total would be approximately 57,000,000 million.
The Chicago Tribune reported on September 23, 2015 that there were 42.4 million foreign born people in the USA last year, or 13.3 percent of the USA population.
Whether or not this has been a plus or minus for the US economy depends on which study report you choose to believe.
Abortion Statistics in the World
If you consider the number of abortions that occur in the USA to be significate, compare the number that are occurring every second around the world. HERE.
Purpose of This Post
The purpose of this post is not to bash immigrants who want a better life. Or to judge any person who disagrees with the US immigration policies because their personal standard of living is compromised by the effects of vast numbers of immigrants affecting their job opportunities or any other plus or minus effects. Either am I passing any judgement on anyone’s reasons for having already aborted a child.
The point I wish to make is how these statistical comparisons have any relevance to meaning to King Solomon’s wisdom of what he believed about how his God manages the humans he created and gave free will to choose the outcome and effects of their wise or foolish actions.
Once you understand this, I hope you will better understand how King Solomon writings are still relevant to modern times..
I believe this Proverb relates to the blessing, or curse our Creator gave us of free will to make our own choices. A blessing when our choice is wise, or a curse when our choice is foolish.
In a novel Excerpt, I surmised how a person, King Solomon, based on his proverbs, may have answered questions posed by the Queen of Sheba why God allows us to make free will, wise or foolish choices. The novel is a contemporary application of a story form to promote understanding of proverbs and ancient wise sayings in relation to our modern times.
“I believe Yahweh created both an order and purpose to make all things in relation to what answers to its counterpart, and so the wicked man for an evil day. I believe Yahweh allows both the good and the wicked free choice of their actions. Every act has a consequence and is self-regulating rather than an effect separable from a cause that would require Yahweh to intervene on every action to either justify or condemn. ”Yahweh has made everything in relation to its counterpart, and so the wicked man for an evil day. (Proverb 16:4)
In my Next Post
I will explain why the Abortion Factor is the root cause of all folly.
Regards and goodwill blogging.
