That’s the estimated number of abortions that occur each year around the world. That’s roughly 126,000 per day. A little over 5,000 every hour… or 87 per minute. 1.45 every second.
In the time it takes me to post this, another 500 lives will be terminated.
If that perspective isn’t enough for you “body count” lovers, compare these numbers to the following:
17,000,000 - Americans that die from Heart Disease each year
7,000,000 - Americans that die from Cancer each year
1,100,000 - American casualties in the 5 deadliest U.S. wars
40,000 - Americans die in car accidents annually
30,000 - Americans commit suicide each year
17,000 - Homicides committed each year
Add them all together and the total is still only about half the number of lives terminated through abortion each year. It’s amazing that we spend so much time, effort and money researching cures for those things that terminate life… while an entire segment of the population rallies against a known cure for one thing that ends more lives than most anything else on earth.
Of course, it’s worth noting that every single person that rallies in support of abortion… is someone who’s never been a victim of it.
