While the world, and Americans, have been worried about a virus we learn that the greatest cause of death in the world is abortion. Mother’s killing their babies is the leading cause of death, bar none.
In a January 3rd, 2022 LifeNews.com article titled “Abortion Was the Leading Cause of Death Worldwide in 2021, Killing 42.6 Million People” Steven Ertelt reported:
More human beings died in abortions than any other cause of death in 2021.
A heartbreaking reminder about the prevalence of abortion, statistics compiled by Worldometers indicate that there were over 42.6 million abortions world-wide in 2021. The independent site collects data from governments and other reputable organizations and then reports the data, along with estimates and projections, based on those numbers. It reveals 42,640,209 people died from abortions in 2021.
When contrasting the abortion numbers to other causes of death, including cancer, HIV/AIDS, traffic accidents and suicide, abortions far outnumbered every other cause. By contrast, 8.7 million people died from cancer in 2020, 5 million from smoking, 13 million from disease, and 1.7 million died of HIV/AIDS. Deaths by malaria and alcohol are also recorded.
With 58.7 million people dying last year from a cause other than abortion, that means abortions accounted for 42% of every death around the world last year. [Emphasis added]
The Supreme Court of the United States is now considering the merits of a case that could end this slaughter of the unborn by overturning Roe v. Wade. In December 2021 the Supreme Court heard an abortion case out of Mississippi, Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. It would appear to be the most serious challenge to Roe v. Wade in three decades.
We have written extensively on the issue of abortion.
We believe that a woman has a plethora of ways not to get pregnant including: abstinence, birth control devices (male and female), birth control pills and the common sense approach to not having sex when the woman is in her most fertile period.
Both men and women have a duty and responsibility when it comes to procreation.
We believe that once a woman gets pregnant she has only two choices: 1.) to keep the baby or 2.) put the baby up for adoption.
Killing an unborn child is against everything that is good and wholesome about any culture. It is anti-motherhood and has lead to a culture of death using the myth of choice.
As the first Catholic President John F. Kennedy, at a Commencement Address at Yale University, June 11, 1962,
“The great enemy of truth is very often not the lie–deliberate, contrived and dishonest–but the myth–persistent, persuasive and unrealistic.”
A woman’s “right to choose” abortion has become a persistent, persuasive, unrealistic and murderous myth, killing over 60 million unborn in American alone at a time when we are witnessing as Elon Musk warning that we’re in a “dangerous decline in our population.”
We hope and pray that the Supreme Court will overturn Roe v. Wade in 2022. That truly is a great way to start out the new year.
