The number of abortions per day almost equals the number of people dying per day
“How can you say there are too many children. That is like saying there are too many flowers,” said Mother Theresa. There’s almost no decent debate to answer such an observation. Even when discussing abortion.
Abortion is not about population numbers and most often summarily not about unwanted children. There are deep sociological questions behind abortion. It is an extremely difficult matter, ironically usually most heatedly argued by men. We know of no woman who has an abortion gladly.
There are almost 50 million abortions performed every year. That’s an average of 136,000 abortions per day. Approximately 360,000 babies are born per day. You’re eyes are not deceiving you: world wide, one third of pregnancies end in non-natural abortions. In fact, the number of abortions per day almost equals the number of people dying per day.
You may be pro-life or support certain forms of control over the human right to live or perhaps you do not consider the fetus as human. Whatever your view, you’ll find someone to debate abortion facts with.
Ray Comfort of Living Waters Publications felt so strongly about abortion that he produced 180:Movie in which he compares it with war and calls it the “American Holocaust.” Millions have viewed the video and perhaps you should too, whatever you view on abortion.
