Human identity

By George R. Henry
Live Action News 

In February, 1953, James Watson walked into a bar in England and declared that he and Francis Crick discovered the double helix DNA molecule. Twenty years later in January 1973 the US Supreme Court declared that human abortion was legal. Is there a relationship between these 2 events? Perhaps there is.

Perhaps the first event should have prevented the second. To be fair, it has taken a long time to get from the discovery of the double helix DNA molecule to the point of being able to read it. That is, to be able to actually read the data on the segments of the strand. As we’ve come to learn since that discovery over 60 years ago the DNA contains the complete description of any individual.
