Given the recent revelations about Planned Parenthood, it’s appropriate to remind people that Planned Parenthood’s “services” are actually far worse than what they have just been caught doing.
Certainly, illegally selling the chopped up body parts of babies is twisted stuff but legally murdering those children in the first place is far more grotesque.
Making hundreds of millions of dollars doing the aforementioned is a gross insult to human life and to our creator God.
The list comes from Michael Snyder’s blog and the full references for each statistic can be found here:
#1 In a massacre that is almost unspeakable, more than 56 million American babies have been murdered in the United States since Roe v. Wade was decided in 1973.
#2 When you total up all forms of abortion, including those caused by the abortion drug RU 486, the grand total comes to more than a million abortions performed in the United States every single year.
#3 The number of American babies killed by abortion each year is roughly equal to the number of U.S. military deaths that have occurred in all of the wars that the United States has ever been involved in combined.
#4 Approximately 3,000 Americans lost their lives as a result of the destruction of the World Trade Center towers on 9/11. Every single day, more than 3,000 American babies are killed by abortion.
#5 About one-third of all American women will have had an abortion by the age of 45.
#6 Approximately 47 percent of the women that get an abortion each year in the United States have also had a previous abortion.
#7 It has been reported that a staggering 41 percent of all New York City pregnancies end in abortion.
#8 Approximately 78 percent of all abortions in New York City are performed on African-American and Hispanic babies.
#9 According to Pastor Clenard Childress, approximately 52 percent of all African-American pregnancies now end in abortion.
#10 Most women that get abortions in the United States claim to be Christian. Protestant women get 42 percent of all abortions and Catholic women get 27 percent of all abortions.
#11 About 18 percent of all abortions in the United States each year are performed on teenagers.
#12 One very shocking study found that 86 percent of all abortions are done for the sake of convenience.
#13 According to the Guttmacher Institute, the average cost of a first trimester abortion at the ten week mark is $451.
#14 Many insurance companies now prefer abortion because the average cost of a vaginal birth with no complications in the United States is now over $9,000.
#15 During fiscal year 2014, Planned Parenthood snuffed the life out of 327,653 babies.
#16 Planned Parenthood specifically targets the poor. A staggering 72 percent of Planned Parenthood’s “customers” have incomes that are either equal to or beneath 150 percent of the federal poverty level.
#17 There are 30 Planned Parenthood executives that make more than $200,000 a year. A few of them actually make more than $300,000 a year.
#18 Planned Parenthood gets more than 400 million dollars from the federal government each year.
#19 Overall, there have been well over a billion abortions performed around the world since 1980.
I recommend reading the article in its entirety. Snyder makes a powerfully disturbing case against the continuation of murdering babies by abortion.
