 In 1973, in light of the Roe vs. Wade case, the Supreme Court of the USA declared that the banning of abortion in the USA is “unconstitutional” and therefore they lifted the ban and made abortion legal in all 50 states. Since that one Supreme Court decision that the banning of abortion was unconstitutional, the rate of recorded abortions has increased so much over the years.

 Before the case of Roe vs. Wade the number of recorded “illegal” abortions in America was as follows: (Note- I found this information here: http://www.christianliferesources.com/?/library/view.php&articleid=1042)

 Add this all up and you have about 52,008,665 recorded abortions since the year 1973! 52,008,665 abortions in the USA alone in only 33 years! This number varies a lot between different pro-life organizations, but keep in mind, whatever number you read is only the recorded abortions.

 Here is another statistic graph by the group Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life about the USA abortions recorded since 1973 to 2008:

50,766,331 abortions 1973–2008

Reported abortions in the United States, by year (1973 to 2008)

 The problem is not how many abortions have taken place. Even one abortion in the USA is too much for me. The problem is getting abortions banned and/or getting the amount of abortions down considerably, as in less than 1,000 abortions per year or even better no abortions at all!

 Here is some good news…

Between 2006 and 2007 there was a 2% decrease in the annual amount of abortions in 49 areas that reported. (The 2% here equals 18,752 babies that might otherwise have been aborted!) (Info found on the CDC website)

 But the fight is just beginning…

 I found this article that was last updated on 9/30/2011. Please read it here: http://www.buzzle.com/articles/abortion-statistics-in-america.html

  In it the writer states that the amount of current annual abortions in the USA only is 1.4 Million abortions! 1.4 million babies are murdered legally in the USA before they are born! And about 46 million abortions are preformed around the world EVERY YEAR! 46 million babies are murdered, whether legally or not, annually!

 Although you and I can’t stop all of those abortions every year in the whole world, that doesn’t give us a reason not to try. Start local. Find a group of friends and family who are pro-life, find an organization that seeks to end abortion, make your own group. Write, call, or go to your congressman, mayor, or governor, example the problem, your belief and stand point and ask them to help you end abortions. Write a book, blog, and or a newsletter. Go to local abortion clinics or hospitals and try, peacefully, to change to mind of the women who go in them. Be prepared with the needed information to change their minds. Pictures, testimonies, videos, books, or groups they can go to for help, etc. Whatever you do to help lower and end abortions in the USA… do something!

 Praise be to the Great Physician for all Eternity!
