The pragmatic implication of ID for the abortion debate

For the completely amoral, who only care about material effectiveness and efficiency, and have no regard for the moral value of human life, ID is very relevant.

These people care only about utility, and ID shows that humans are the source of the greatest utility, as we are the only physical beings capable of creating information.  Everything else is downstream from information.

That is the importance of the scientific case for ID - it shows the amoral utilitarian that human life still has the greatest utility, and must be protected above all else.

For example, the Chinese government would realize that scientifically their one child policy is destined to make their country less successful, ultimately, than India.
