If you can believe it, more human beings died as a result of abortion around the world than those murdered with guns or by democide in 2018. According to a new report, the murder of human beings in the womb is the leading cause of death for the year 2018. Nothing to be proud about.
Even as I write this article, worldometers.info is live reporting that over 67,000 abortions have occurred across the planet today alone.
The abortion number is incomprehensible, but each of those 42 million abortions represents a living human being whose life was violently destroyed in their mother’s womb. Each unborn baby already had their own unique DNA, making them distinct from their mother. That DNA indicated if the child was a boy or girl, their eye and hair color, their height, possible genetic disorders and other disabilities, and much more. In most cases, the unborn babies’ hearts are beating when they are aborted, too.
In America, just under 1 million babies are aborted every year. Though abortion rates have been dropping in the past decade, abortion remains the leading cause of death in the United States as well.
An estimated 60 million unborn babies have been killed in abortions in the U.S. since Roe v. Wade in 1973. In January, pro-life advocates will gather for the annual March for Life in Washington, D.C. to remember the anniversary of that infamous decision and call for restored protections for the unborn.
Globally, just under a quarter of all pregnancies (23 percent) were ended by abortion in 2018, and for every 33 live births, ten infants were aborted.
There were more deaths from abortion in 2018 than all deaths from cancer, malaria, HIV/AIDS, smoking, alcohol, and traffic accidents combined.
The staggering number of deaths from abortion, in fact, has led certain observers to call abortion “the social justice cause of our time,” since judging from the sheer magnitude of the problem other human rights issues pale in comparison.
The annual March for Life in the United States will take place in Washington, D.C., on January 18, 2019 with the theme “Unique from Day One.”
The stated purpose of the march is to end abortion by “uniting, educating, and mobilizing pro-life people in the public square.”
The annual march commemorates the January 22, 1973 Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade that invalidated 50 state laws and made abortion legal and available on demand throughout the United States.
With that in mind, Actress Ashley Bratcher has risked her career to play the role of Abby Johnson, the former Planned Parenthood employee who is now a pro-life activist.
You can listen to Abby’s keynote from the 2014 Georgia Right to Life Banquet by click here.
“I knew from the very beginning, they warned me, they said, ‘You’re probably gonna get blacklisted. This could end your career.’ I said, ‘I don’t care. It’s worth it,’” she told Fox News’ Ainsley Earhardt.
Bratcher took the role of Abby Johnson in the movie “Unplanned” regardless of the risk because she felt that the project was worth it.
“When I started learning the details she shared of working at Planned Parenthood, it really opened my eyes to the reality of what abortion really is,” she told Fox News.
"This movie is not about judgment and condemnation, it's about mercy and forgiveness." – #AshleyBratcher
Both the reporter and the actress who stars in @UnplannedMovie, cry during this interview.

What’s interesting it that while filming, Bratcher’s mother called her to inform her that she was on the table preparing to murder her, but changed her mind and left the clinic! See the impact that has for today people!
“I got up and I walked out and I chose you,” Bratcher recalled her mom saying, “And I never knew that. It blows my mind.”
“This movie is not about judgment and condemnation, it’s about mercy and forgiveness,” Bratcher said.
I can attest to several times a week thinking of the woman that gave me birth, who didn’t decide to murder me for the sake of convenience but gave me up to loving parents who raised me as their own. Wherever she is, I wish that she knew how appreciative I am of her determination to face humiliation and other things in that time period in order not to compound one problem of carrying a bastard child with another of murdering me.
I wish people understood that these children are precious no matter the circumstances they are conceived in, whether rape, incest, out of wedlock or even in marriage. Children are a heritage and a blessing from the LORD (Psalm 127). Never forget that!
