Society has made huge sacrifices over the past several months to save the most vulnerable people from the coronavirus.
People have been confined to their homes. Businesses, churches and schools have closed, and leaders have dedicated massive amounts of resources to stopping the spread of the virus and healing those who have contracted it.
And yet, not all people are being treated as if they are worth the sacrifice to save. New York, Pennsylvania and other state leaders are facing criticism for ordering nursing homes to accept coronavirus patients – putting the elderly and people with disabilities in greater danger.
And abortion clinics have remained open throughout the crisis, putting both mothers’ and unborn babies’ lives at risk while actual medical facilities closed to protect their patients.
As a result, abortion remains the leading cause of death in both the United States and worldwide.
On Thursday, the Centers for Disease Control announced that the number of Americans who have died from the coronavirus has surpassed 100,000. The Worldometer estimated the global deaths from the coronavirus at approximately 364,600 on Friday.
The number of unborn babies who died in the U.S. and internationally from abortions far surpasses both.
Based on Worldometer abortion statistics, there were an average 3,484,800 abortions per month in the world so far in 2020. That means that between March and May, the time of the coronavirus shutdowns, approximately 10.5 million unborn babies were aborted.

The number of abortions in the U.S. during that same time period was approximately 215,600, an estimate based on the latest abortion statistics from the Guttmacher Institute.
These abortions did not destroy “pregnancies” or blobs of tissue or clumps of cells. They destroyed unique, living human beings – unborn babies with their own separate DNA and almost certainly a beating heart. This is basic biology, and abortionists themselves admit that abortions kill human beings.
Whether from the coronavirus or abortion or another cause, every death marks the end of a unique, valuable human life that can never be replaced. And how much more tragic deaths are when they are preventable. People all across the world made sacrifices to save people from dying from COVID-19. If only more would do the same for unborn babies.
