Biggest Pandemic Is the Culture of Death

Imagine wiping out California’s population. That’s what global abortions in 2020 amounted to.

California leads the nation with a population of roughly 39.5 million, according to the Census Bureau. But even if we add three million to that calculation, it would still fall short of the 42.7 million preborn souls that were exterminated in their mothers’ wombs globally in 2020.

“Data provided by Worldmeter revealed that as of December 31, there were 42.7 million unborn babies killed by abortion in 2020,” says Disrn’s Jenny Mount. “That number far outpaced cancer, which came in at 8.2 million, smoking at 5 million, COVID-19 at 1.8 million, and HIV/AIDS with 1.7 million deaths. Worldwide, abortion caused more deaths than cancer, smoking, alcohol, HIV/AIDS, malaria, automobile accidents, and COVID-19 combined.”

For anyone with even an ounce of integrity, this is nothing short of astounding. Yet it’s merely a (completely ignored) statistic among a good chunk of the general populace both here and abroad, even if global abortion amounts to essentially wiping out a state greater than the size of California in any given year. Read that stat again: “Worldwide, abortion caused more deaths than cancer, smoking, alcohol, HIV/AIDS, malaria, automobile accidents, and COVID-19 combined [emphasis added].” In other words, it’s a pandemic far greater than the cumulative effect of said diseases and misfortunes.

Here’s another troubling reality: Democrats here in America want not only to do way with the Mexico City policy but also repeal the Hyde Amendment. Both of these actions would add insult to injury by further padding the number of abortions not just here but around the world — on the taxpayer dime.
