Gender Crisis due to Abortion and Infanticide

Near-sighted pro-death pundits couldn't see this one coming, but this is a whopper of a problem. Thanks to the pro-death culture exported primarily from the United States, we have negative population growth that is unprecedented in all of history. See more here for details.

Okay, so here's the logic lesson for the day:

Pure Hypothetical Syllogism: This is the type of syllogism that poses "if...then" propositions. The more common type of HS is the "mixed hypothetical" where there is only one "if...then" proposition in the major position. A pure hypothetical syllogism has all three syllogisms as "if..then" propositions. Case in point:

1) If the number of unborn infants that are killed is greater than the number of people who die, then the number of people born to replace the dead decreases.

2) If the number of people born to replace the dead decreases, then there will be negative population growth.

Conclusion: Therefore, if the number of unborn infants that are killed is greater than the number of people who die, then there there will be negative population growth.

It would seem, by necessity, that proponents of the woman's right to kill have a problem on their hands besides innocent blood. If they see killing unborn infants as a basic human right, then, do we as humans, have a right to exterminate ourselves? If they do propose this, could it be safely said that they have a hatred for humankind? In operation they do. To counter this, they will have to, for the sake of the future existence of humankind, agree to federal provisions mandating the births of infants; perhaps even requiring family sizes to be five or more to try and catch up before our civilization dies.

My guess is that proponents of a woman's right to kill her unborn infant will not move logically to ward off this problem. They will most likely lament, act conflicted and do nothing. What's at stake is the view that we can have sex with anyone we choose without having to bear the children of sex. Which only accentuates the issue of abortion rights...it is the right to kill, never a right to choose.

Let the discussion begin...

If this,

read

2) If the number of people born to replace the dead decreases to a rate less than the number required to replace the dead, then there will be negative population growth.

Then I would agree. You make no assertion as to the relationship between the rate at which humans are born in relation to the rate at which they die.

Crucial missing piece to your argument. Maybe it was implied and I didn't get it.

It is implied and thank you for your accuracy!

I would also like to point out that the links you provide do not support your premise. They show ~20 nations having negative or near zero population growth. One of the charts linked through the second article you cite shows the worldwide population growing by over 30% between 2000 and 2050.

Actually what you cite is beside the point I'm making. The twenty nations with zero to negative growth is unprecedented in all of history. And, abortion on demand, and contracepting couples is to blame in these countries. And, if these countries don't get they're act together soon, these countries will lose their population, or be replaced by different ethnic groups. My point was NOT that the world population was declining.

You don't cite any evidence to support this assertion. The first article you cite discusses all countries with positive growth or over-population. The second one notes the 20 nations in negative growth. To be intelectually honest you should compare and contrast the avaialbility of abortion and contraception in those nations that are experiencing negative population growth.

For example, Russia is in negative population growth and has the highest abortion rate in the world at 52.5% in 2005. There are other nation listed that are high in abortion rates also. That support your case.

But on the other hand Poland, Italy and Greece, where abortion is restricted or illegal, have some of the lowest abortion rates in the world - Same source. Yet they are in the negaitve or zero growth list. That refutes your case.

You don't provide any objective data to support your case. In fact more data to the contrary is available to prove that in the countries where infanticide is practiced and abortion and contraception are encourage, China and India for example, over-popualtion is a bigger problem.

How do you square that flaw in your logic?

You are right again, Cranky. It is a flaw in my induction. I made a hastey generalization, didn't I? I put it together and made a assumption. You're sharper on this than I am. I'll be more careful next time. Thanks!
