Staggering Numbers

I know this is discouraging reading, but the realities of what is happening is too painful to overlook.

Read any commentary on the contentious abortion debate and you’ll likely find a wide variety of numbers attempting to estimate the number of abortions that have taken place since the Supreme Court’s infamous Roe v. Wade abortion decision since 1973. Now, a new analysis from the National Right to Life Committee based on hard data and estimates for the most recent years finds 52 million unborn children have been killed in abortion since the Roe decision.

However, we have the power of prayer and we have begun to have some success.

“Abortion has taken a terrible toll on America. We’ve now lost more than 52 million of our sons, daughters, friends, and neighbors and we are a much poorer nation for it,” he said. “Over the past twenty years, however, we have seen that pro-life efforts can make a difference, as the number of abortions performed in the U.S. has declined from 1.6 million to 1.2 million a year. We’ve still a long way to go, obviously, but we see that pro-life legislation, education, and outreach can save and has saved hundreds of thousands of lives,” O’Bannon added. “Our task is great, but our cause is just.”
