|Bill Nye, aka “the science guy” |
recent YouTube video marks him
more as the “pro abortion guy.”
Bill Nye’s video many times uses a non sequitur to make a point. This is a logical fallacy where the conclusion does not follow from the original statement. A good example is his discussion of the many fertilized embryos that do not result in newborn babies. Robert George and Patrick Lee remind us that “the fact that many human embryos die at an early stage of development” does not mean, “they are not embryonic human beings.” The high rate of infant mortality in many parts of the world doesn’t mean these infants were not human beings.
At the core of his video is his attempt to pit religion against science. Those of us who are pro-life he argues have nothing more than “deeply held beliefs” based on a “book written 5,000 years ago” that says that, “when a man and a woman have sexual intercourse, they always have a baby.” Is any of this true? Many who are pro-life come to that conclusion apart from the Bible, but based upon the scientific fact that a human being begins at fertilization. Even the oldest parts of the Bible weren’t written 5,000 years ago.
What about his last statement? Robert George and Patrick Lee remind us that “no one who is familiar with the Bible would dream of attributing to it any such nonsense, because it prominently includes stories of married couples (such as Abraham and Sarah) whose desire for children is frustrated by infertility.”
This video illustrates the lengths to which pro-abortion advocates must go in order to make their case. Science and logic are actually on the side of those who are pro-life
