According to the CDC, the number one cause of death in America is heart disease. Heart disease kills nearly 610,000 people annually. That means every American has a 1 in 4 chance of dying from some form of heart failure.
A very morbid thought, indeed. Yet, people kill more babies via abortion, annually, than grown people die of Heart Disease. The CDC reports that in 2013 there were 664,435 legal abortions . That’s the fewest amount of reported abortions since 1973. So many abortions, yet the least in 40 years. A truly chilling statistic. Bear in mind, that’s only the number of legal abortions.
“But many of these are to save the pregnant mother’s life, right?” – Wrong. Less than 1% of abortions are executed because the mother is in mortal danger.
So, it seems a person is more likely to be murdered in utero than he is to die of cancer or heart disease.
Since the modern left likes to protect all lives, namely, Black Lives, LGBT lives, or any form of minority life, it may come as a shock that the left does not care about your life. Even if you are of a minority race or sexual orientation, you do not deserve the same rights prior to birth. Sounds like some backwards logic, right? I’ll leave that to the reader to decide.
The topic of abortion is a very sensitive one. It is important to remember that any mother who is considering abortion is likely in a very troubling time in her life. As tough as it may be, it does not grant her the right to terminate the life of the child living within her womb.”My body, my choice” simply doesn’t cut it. It is our duty as a society to protect those in need. We must speak for those who don’t have the power to speak for themselves. I can’t imagine a more fitting situation to apply that moral phrase.
