This is one of those cases where the most massive elephant in the room is overlooked
The Revolutionary War claimed more than 25,000 lives. The Civil War and World War II, almost 1/2 a million a piece. The more recent, controversial Iraq War cost a few thousand lives.
People discuss and debate the causes and the validity of these conflicts all of the time though there is one fact that is certain to shock most people. Take a look at the full chart, below:
It is difficult to say which is more controversial, the Vietnam War or the Iraq War, but, combined, these two conflicts claimed the lives of over 60,000 Americans, a high number, no doubt.
Even that disturbing number is dwarfed by the annual abortions statistic. Did you have any idea that abortions are counted in the millions?
Abortion has seen its share of controversy, as well, especially in an Election Year.
Democrat Nominee for President said the following regarding abortion:
“The kinds of cases that fall at the end of pregnancy are often the most heartbreaking, painful decisions for families to make,” Clinton said at the debate, referencing health risks to mothers and fetal anomalies to justify her extreme position
She was countered by Lila Rose, the founder of Live Action, with the following:
The first problem with Clinton’s claim is that researchpublished by the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute found that abortions for fetal abnormalities “make up a small minority” of late-term abortions, and those that are purported to be done to save the mother’s life are an even smaller number.
Even more problematic for Clinton, over 1,000 medical professionals have concluded that abortion is never medically necessary to save a mother’s life. While a life-saving treatment for a mother may result in the death of her preborn child, that treatment’s purpose is not to kill the baby. For example, removing a mother’s fallopian tube in the case of an ectopic pregnancy, or inducing labor later in pregnancy to achieve better outcomes for both baby and mother is not abortion.
Not being able to save someone because we lack the technology to do so is entirely different from intentionally killing them. Abortion is an intentional killing, and that is always a grave injustice.
Here are a couple more alarming statistics. The pro-abortion group, Planned Parenthood, receives $500 million in taxpayer subsidies. They gave $30 million to the Clinton Campaign.
All of these statistics are relevant now that the Election is over for the following reason: We need to decide what we want President-Elect Trump and the Legislature to do about abortion, and make our intentions known.
Do you agree?
