Expectation calculus[]

Let´s say that it is 99.9% certain that fetuses are no human beings. It follows that in every 1 million abortions there are 0.1% * 1000000=1000 human beings which are murdered (murder entails the intention to kill somebody). It follows that abortion should be banned because in certain circumstances it murders babies.

Intuitive view[]

Now, intuitively I can see that such calculus of expectation should not be done this way, but as a speaking animal I am interested to know the reason of why it should not be done.

I invite reviewers to write below the reasons why they think it is bogus statistics. Please do not remove reasons which seem too dumb, it is just a brainstorming article.

Reasons why the above calculus is flawed[]
