This is a long blog post and no doubt the least popular of the lot I’ve been writing lately. I didn’t intend for this to be a series, but after continuing to read pro-abortion arguments based mainly in emotion, misconception, and even prejudice, I felt the record needed to be set straight.
For reference, my first two articles in this series are On the Overturning of Roe vs. Wade and The Basics of a Woman’s “Constitutional Right to Abortion”.
Before getting into the main topic, I want to make a few points. First of all, according to National Right to Life (PDF), between 1973 and 2019, a grand total of 63,459,781 abortions were performed. Barring twin and triplet pregnancies, that means 63,459,781 human lives were ended in their mothers’ wombs. For comparison, between 40 million and 50 million people died in all of World War Two. During the Vietnam War: as many as 2,000,000 civilians on both sides and some 1,100,000 North Vietnamese and Viet Cong fighters died. The U.S. military has estimated that between 200,000 and 250,000 South Vietnamese soldiers died.
63,459,781 lives and that’s only up until three years ago. Let that sink in.
