When sources like this one compare Planned Parenthood’s abortion statistics to Hitler’s genocide in WWII, I can’t help but think of a much greater holocaust that goes unreported by the media and often even unnoticed by those it most affects. Note: We will assume, for the sake of this discussion, that life begins at the moment of conception. My views on this subject will be discussed in a forthcoming post.
Sources vary, but the USA seems to boast somewhere between 4.4 million and 6 million pregnancies per year. I’m going to work with the 6 million figure for no particular reason; my results are based on percentages, not actual numbers.
According to these statistics, approximately 22% of all pregnancies (excluding miscarriages, of course) end in abortion. Horrible stuff, no?
But according to statistics posted here, 25% to as many as 40% of ALL pregnancies are miscarried. So what does that do to our numbers?
BETWEEN 25% * 6,000,000 pregnancies = 1,500,000 miscarriages per year
AND 40% * 6,000,000 pregnancies = 2,400,000 miscarriages per year
So when we talk about the abortion figures, remember that we’re taking a percentage of NON-MISCARRIED pregnancies. Thus:
BETWEEN 22% * 4,500,000 pregnancies = 990,000 abortions per year
AND 22% * 3,600,000 pregnancies = 792,000 abortions per year
So if we want to talk about infant holocausts, let’s start with the 1.5 to 2.4 MILLION babies killed by God every year without anyone’s consent or approval, before we start talking about the 792 to 990 thousand abortions that are chosen for a variety of reasons, many involving health and safety.
In short, EVERY YEAR God kills TWICE as many babies as EVERY ABORTIONIST IN THIS COUNTRY PUT TOGETHER.
Just so you know I play fair, if we use the 4.4 million pregnancies statistic, we get 1.1 to 1.76 million miscarriages versus 581 to 726 thousand abortions.
God is still much eviler.
