157 Babies Killed in Abortion Every Single Hour

This week our nation marks 41 years of legalized abortion — where unborn children are killed in every state in our country.
For most Americans, the 41st anniversary the Supreme Court handed down its decision will be a day to mourn — a day to mourn the loss of tens of millions of unborn children — sons and daughters, brothers and sisters lost to a world that values choice over compassion. It will be a day to mourn the damage abortion does to women — the medical problems, the mental health issues, the damaging of relationships with friends and family, and the destruction of relationships with God.
Since that fateful day in 1973, there have been an estimated 56,662,169 abortions.
Each abortion is more than just a number — it’s a tiny baby whose life was snuffed out and a mother injured in the process. Each abortion is a father who will ever experience the joy of holding his baby, watching his son play on the high school football team or watching his daughter graduate from college.
If you run the math on those terrible figures, the numbers are absolutely chilling:
1.382 million abortions every year
115,167 abortions every month
26,577 abortions every week
3,786 abortions every day
157 abortions every hour
2.6 abortions every minute
These numbers may break your heart but they have no effect on the mainstream media, the Obama administration and Planned Parenthood and its friends in the abortion industry worldwide.
They don’t want to be held accountable for this travesty — but LifeNews will.
