The economic consequences of the culture of death

How should the Righteous Investor consider the question of abortion?  Well, it is repugnant from the standpoint of the Christian world view.  But should investors have a different take?  Well, here is a possible consideration.  It is possible to quantify the value of life by multiplying the average earning potential times 38 years (18-65).  The typical human being in the USA should be able to earn a modest $25,000 per year.  In this case, their lives would be worth $950,000 each.  Since there have now been 50 million abortions in the United States, the total value lost equals $950,000*50 million, or 47,500,000,000,000; 47.5 trillion dollars.  Now if we consider that the unfunded liabilities of the United States is around 100 trillion, doesn’t the abortion policy seem quite ridiculous from an investor’s point of view?  The earnings of these dead people could have quite easily made a huge dent in this coming economic meltdown in the United States.
