Today is Sanctity of Life Sunday. A day that isn’t really acknowledged much but should be. Here are some statistics that you might not know about abortion:
Every single day, a silent horror kills more Americans than were killed on 9/11. Every single year, this silent horror kills about as many Americans as have been killed on all the battlefields in all of the wars in U.S. history combined. This silent horror is called abortion, and it is a national disgrace. Overall, more than 50 million babies have been slaughtered since Roe v. Wade was decided in 1973. We have become a nation with so little regard for human life that nobody even really talks that much about this issue anymore. But the truth is that it is at the very core of what is wrong with America.
The following are a few facts about abortion in America that should make you very sick….
More than 4,000 babies are aborted EVERY SINGLE DAY.
More than 90% of babies diagnosed during pregnancy with Down Syndrome are aborted.
There have been more than 53 million abortions performed in the United States since Roe v. Wade was decided back in 1973.
When you total up all forms of abortion, including those caused by the abortion drug RU 486, the grand total comes to more than a million abortions performed in the United States every single year.
One very shocking study found that 86% of all abortions are done for the sake of convenience.
Planned Parenthood Founder Margaret Sanger once said the following….
“The most merciful thing that a family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.”
In a 1922 book entitled “Woman, Morality, and Birth Control”, Planned Parenthood Founder Margaret Sanger wrote the following….
“Birth control must lead ultimately to a cleaner race.”
Planned Parenthood performs more than 300,000 abortions every single year.
Planned Parenthood received more than 487 million dollars from the federal government during 2010. I am sure it is much more than that now.
The following is one description of the five steps of a partial birth abortion….
1) Guided by ultrasound, the abortionist grabs the baby’s legs with forceps.
2) The baby’s leg is pulled out into the birth canal.
3) The abortionist delivers the baby’s entire body, except for the head.
4) The abortionist jams scissors into the baby’s skull. The scissors are then opened to enlarge the skull.
5) The scissors are removed and a suction catheter is inserted. The child’s brains are sucked out, causing the skull to collapse. The dead baby is then removed.
How can we murder our own children?
These are just a few of the statistics that I researched and know about. There are many more horrible and sad statistics. I have made no apologies nor will I ever as to my VERY strong stand of being pro-life. I have been faced with the “choice” of abortion. I was told my baby would not survive birth and that even if she did that she would never walk or talk. I was told that she would have NO quality of life and that it was my DUTY as her mother to do what was best; which in the doctor’s opinion was ABORTION! This mother and father did what was RIGHT and what was BEST and we will NEVER have the regret that so many women and men have after choosing abortion. I can honestly say that the only regret I have is that I didn’t tell that doctor where he could stick his opinion! Although, 6 weeks after Hannah was born I did run into that doctor and when he told me how adorable Hannah was, I reminded him that he was the one that told me I should murder her! I digress……I am pro-life…..I don’t understand abortion, I never will. I would never want the blood of an innocent child on my hands……
New International Version (NIV)
13 For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be.
17 How precious to me are your thoughts,[a] God!
How vast is the sum of them!
18 Were I to count them,
they would outnumber the grains of sand—
when I awake, I am still with you.
