Peanut Gallery: Since 1973 when the US Supreme Court legalized abortion, over 55 million babies have been killed. The numbers are staggering and continue to grow. Maybe this will help you get a handle on it –
Time: If you counted 1 baby per second, it would take you 1 yr and 9 months to get to 55 million, and by then an additional 2,400,000 babies would have been aborted. In fact, 3 more babies will be aborted in the time it takes for you to read this post.
Population: 55 million abortions is the approxomate equivalent of eliminating everyone living in the States of Califonia and New York… or wiping out everyone who lives in the United Kingdom, or Italy. It would cut Mexico’s population in half… or eliminate every Canadian with 20 million deaths to spare.
Deadly comparisons: The Atomic Bombs dropped on Nagasaki and Hiroshima killed an estimated 250,000 people… and the Holocaust killed 6 million Jews.
55 million dead American babies is a mind boggling number.
Abortion: “Safe, legal and rare?” That’s what pro-death politicians tell us they want. Rare… really? They get all excited about 20 kids getting shot by some random mental case (a vivid example of the reality of evil) and want to ban guns… but have no problem funding America’s baby-killing machine, Planned Parenthood – 334,000 children killed in 2011… and the government (We the people) paid these “contract killers” $538 million to do it.
So who are the crazies in America, the people sitting safe and warm on their couches yawning, “oh well”… or the people in the streets yelling, “Enough!” My wife and I threw our lot in with the folks in the streets… in 20 degree snowy weather.
