The Stats of Unborn Death

“…Since the passage of Roe vs. Wade in 1973, there has been more than 30 million abortions in the United States. (Estimates world-wide range from 100-200 million, but few nations have accurate or efficient reporting of those numbers.) Almost one third of all pregnancies end in abortion. In some large cities, however, the number of abortions exceeds live births. Twenty-six percent of women who have abortions are less than 20 years of age, 33 percent are 20-24 years of age, and 41 percent are over 25 years of age.

The time of pregnancy when abortions are preformed denotes the reality of this terrible slaughter. In 1987, 51 percent were performed at 8 weeks or earlier and 39 percent at 9-12 weeks. Some 3.6 percent were performed from 16-20 weeks when the infants are not yet viable, but are able to live for a few minutes and make struggling motions to survive (if they are not killed or dismembered by the abortion process). Some 0.6 percent were performed at or after 20 weeks, when all babies are potentially viable and some have been “saved” when born prematurely.

These latter figures from 1987 are more striking, however, if they are presented numerically. The 3.6 percent is 55,910 abortions and the 0.6 percent is 9,030. In other words, over nine thousand babies are aborted who are otherwise viable at the time they were killed…

The total number of illegal abortions prior to its legalization was not reported. If, however, this number of deaths is compared to the total number of abortions in Canada and Great Britain, then the total number of abortions in the United States was approximately 100,000 per year. This number is also confirmed by the projecting back the increased number of abortions after legalization in those countries… these statistics should be sufficient to give an overview of the problem and its history…

…Dr. Allan Carlson used such items to calculate the lost productivity for those aborted children, assuming that the current numbers of abortions continue. By the year 2000, some 40 million babies will have been aborted. In the year 2025, their economic impact (all figures are in 1984 dollars) would have totaled $1.45 trillion in that year alone… His figures for those already aborted are a total impact of $636 billion and taxes of $127 billion in the year 2010. He called this loss, “The Malthusian Deficit”…As Christians, we should adopt the axiom that any violation of God’s laws has a severe economic consequence in the long run. Abortion in itself is heinous, but its consequences extend far beyond the act alone. “The wages of sin is death” (Romans 6:23) – both directly to the unborn child and indirectly to the economic and social health of a nation.”
– Parts of Chapter 7: “Abortion: The Killing Fields”; (of) Biblical Healing for Modern Medicine by Franklin E. Payne Jr., M.D.

That was written in 1993.

When I was reading Dr. Payne’s book, mostly during the chapter about abortions, I was shocked, emotional, and pained at the sin of abortion. I beg you to invest, find, and buy Dr. Payne’s book and read it, chapter 7 most of all.

In America, and most of the world at large, we are going through an “economic crisis.” What Dr. Payne foresaw is happening now at a much grander scale. Abortion must end now if we want to even start changing the world properly. Start locally, then statewide, then nationwide. Support groups like Live Action. Start your own group, website, blog, newspaper, book, etc. Get the Truth out because the Truth and nothing but the Truth of God will set us free!

Praise be to the Great Physician for all Eternity!
