55 million babies have been killed in America since 1973

January 22, 2014
Forty years ago this week the U. S. Supreme Court handed down it decision in Roe v. Wade. Since then there have been over 55 MILLION abortions in this nation. That's roughly one-third of the last two generations of Americans. While it is tempting to view these facts from a callous "loss of economic capital" perspective of macro-economics, there are two other much more profound perspectives. Of course one of those is the loss of all those babies. The other is the psychological toll that has been laid on millions of young women.

In recognition of the anniversary of Roe we are posting a piece that was written by a young woman, Kristan Hawkins in It speaks for itself. She writes:
What can I say that hasn't already been said about today?

Yesterday evening, I was sitting in my living room working while watching my sons play. I began to think about what my life would have been without them. How different I would be. How their lives have already made this world a different place since they were born. How much I would hurt if I had chosen abortion.

Then, I thought of the more than 55,000,000 lives that have been taken in the U.S. since 1973, and I became overwhelmed at the tragedy. Tragedy for the babies, their mothers, their fathers, families, and us.

Who is our nation missing? What price is our society paying for the ultimate deceit of abortion?

40 years ago today, seven men on the Supreme Court decided in favor of a case presented to them from a 27 year-old, unknown, post-abortive lawyer, Sarah Weddington. That case was Roe v. Wade and, along with its companion Doe v. Bolton, it legalized abortion in all 9 months of pregnancy, for any reason, in the United States.

Today, this 27 year-old is writing to you as a survivor of that decision. The undeniable fact is that nearly a third of my generation is missing. We are missing brothers, sisters, cousins, friends, husbands and wives.

You see, Miss Weddington's generation got it wrong. In attempting to correct gender inequality in the workplace and in our society, they set into motion the ultimate act of discrimination abortion. Instead of glorifying motherhood, they pitted the mother against her child, creating an endless cycle of selfishness, pain, and deceit.

But this generation is determined to set it right. We've seen the ultrasounds of our siblings, googled "abortion" and seen the bloody images, and sat with a friend as she cried about her abortion. This youth generation is the most pro-life generation of young people since 1973; we're even more pro-life than even our parents' generation. And this week our presence will be known as this generation will be the predominant participants in Wednesday's March for Life in Washington, D.C. and pro-life rallies across the nation.

This week, we will be proudly carrying our "I am the Pro-Life Generation" signs, and Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry will watch their target audience slip away.

In fact, we already have. When Nancy Keenan, the former president of NARAL/Pro-Choice America, announced her resignation last year, she cited the lack of young pro-abortion leaders as the reason she wanted to step down. This month's Time magazine headline story dealt with the same problem, claiming that the pro-abortion movement has been losing since 1973.

And last week's new Planned Parenthood video and talking points on abortion confirm this fact. They don't want to use the term "pro-choice" anymore because it's too negatively associated with abortion. You see, they know when abortion is mentioned, their favorability falls. Their goal? Never bring it up.

So, what should be our goal? To bring up abortion in every conversation we can in church, the grocery store, at school, and at the neighborhood party. To never forget about abortion, no matter how busy our lives may get or how sad or immobilized we become by this immense, overwhelming tragedy.

Friend, it's time to rise up. Rise up off of your couch, out of your dorm room, or pew. Rise up and dedicate your life to something bigger than yourself.

We would also mention that we recently published a story about the Chief Justice of the U. S. Supreme Court who went to South America to adopt two Irish children after he and his wife spent months waiting on an ever growing list of Americans who wanted to adopt children.

And may God have mercy on America's soul.

    abortion stats

    that works out to about 4,000 abortions per day,7 days a week for 40 years, which is 17% of the USA population.

    Somebody somewhere got their finger on the wrong key on their calculator. I am surprised your paper did not question this instead of just going along with it.

    I just calculated the number of babies that have been aborted in my homeland (Germany) in 2012.

    It have been 292 Babies per day and the survey states these are just the "official" abortions done by real doctors. They also say that the dark-number might be twice this much.

    So yeah, for a country as big as America, 4000 abortions per day could be possible. Very sad, but true...

    I am appalled at the number of abortions (murders) since Roe v. Wade.

    This murderous campaign is more horrendous than the Holocaust by Hitler, and exterminations by Pol Pot, Stalin, and Mao combined.

    But I have a story to tell. My wife became pregnant with quadruplets, which is a very rare blessing from the Almighty. Well, the first thing her high risk perinatologist said was, "It is unlikely that you will bring these babies to term. Therefore, we believe you should do a SELECTIVE REDUCTION to increase the chances for survival and a successful pregnancy."

    My wife and I looked at each other in disbelief. They explained that the operation is performed with sonogram guidance of a syringe needle, which contains a saline solution, which is inserted into the beating hearts of those babies to be "reduced". The mother us awake, watching the needle go into the beating heart, the saline is injected, and everyone watches as the heart stops and a human life is exterminated.

    They further explain that sometimes the heart will restart, up to a week later. They make you sign a promisory which says that in the event the hearts restart, the ENTIRE PREGNANCY must be terminated due to the risk of deformity and brain injury caused by the saline, which makes its way into the othet fetuses.

    This is a nightmare, a scene from Frankenstein's monster. We could never, ever do this to a human life.

    Why is it ok to inject a saline solution into the heart of a 12-week old fetus, but not ok to inject the same solution into the heart of a full grown adult, as everyone watches?

    Answer, it is NOT OK in either case because both are FULLY FORMED human beings.

    Well, my quadruplets were born on October 4, 1989. My son was accepted at Harvard, Georgetown, Columbia law, finishing his second year now at Georgetown.

    Two girls have degrees in vocal performance, and are pursuing masters in teaching while they work as music teachers and audition for parts.

    One daughter oassed away a month after birth. She had 5 congenital heart defects. I think God had sent her as a Guardian Angel to make sure the other three made it. She did her job, then went back to our Lord and Savior.

    God will punish mankind for what we have done. A holicaust of 55million just cannot go unanswered.

    Thank you God for blessing me with these quadruplets. May others decide to keep what you have bestowed upon them. Help them to resist the temptations of Satan, who could care less about the death of the innocent. Pkease send your Archangel Muchael to protect these unborn so that they may continue to live in your presence, and perform your goid works.

    The same people who would die to preserve a woman's right to kill her unborn child will also die to prevent someone who has committed the heinous crime of raping and killing a child from being killed by the state.
    It defies all logic.

    Not so simple

    So we have record unemployment and you're saying that we should have added 55 million people to the equation -- mostly to single mothers who couldn't afford to raise them (and some who had mental illnesses or drig and alcohol addictions)? I'm not being callous here -- just trying to understand. Are you also against contraception?

    It's a complicated issue. I don't think anyone is pro-abortion. It's devastating to women and it's not normally a light decision. I do wish that more people chose to have the babies and give them up for adoption -- but I also understand the shame, stigma and high costs, even today, of being a pregnant single mom.

    I was born to a 17-year-old mom and adopted in the early 70s. Today, chances are that that mom would get an abortion. It's tough to find babies to adopt. I'm sad about that -- and I'm happy my mom made the decision to put me up for adoption (abortion wasn't an option then).
