Here are some sad statistics from Abort73:

 

ANNUAL ABORTION STATISTICS

  • Nearly half of pregnancies among American women are unintended; about 4 in 10 of these are terminated by abortion. Twenty-two percent of all U.S. pregnancies end in abortion. (AGI)…

WHO HAS ABORTIONS?

  • In 2007, 84% of all abortions were performed on unmarried women (CDC).
  • Women between the ages of 20-24 obtained 33% of all abortions; women between 25-29 obtained 24% (CDC).
  • 50% of U.S. women obtaining abortions are younger than 25; women aged 20-24 obtain 33% of all U.S. abortions and teenagers obtain 17% (AGI).
  • In 2007, adolescents under 15 years obtained .05% of all abortions, but had the highest abortion ratio, 768 abortions for every 1,000 live births (CDC).
  • 47% of women who have abortions had at least one previous abortion (AGI).
  • At current rates, nearly one-third of American women will have an abortion (AGI)…

WHY ARE ABORTIONS PERFORMED?

  • On average, women give at least 3 reasons for choosing abortion: 3/4 say that having a baby would interfere with work, school or other responsibilities; about 3/4 say they cannot afford a child; and 1/2 say they do not want to be a single parent or are having problems with their husband or partner (AGI)…

WHEN DO ABORTIONS OCCUR?

  • 88-92% of all abortions happen during the first trimester, prior to the 13th week of gestation (AGI/CDC)…”

Likelihood of abortion:
An estimated 43% of all women will have at least 1 abortion by the time they are 45 years old. 47% of all abortions are performed on women who have had at least one previous abortion.”

 As I have said before, the numbers don’t really mean anything because even one abortion is a murder and one murder is too much. What matters is, what are you doing about the number of annual, monthly, daily, abortions in your local area?

If left alone, the numbers will keep increasing. But there is hope. With groups like Live Action, Abort73, 40 Days for Life, the Pro-Life Alliance, and so many more, and more to come, are acting and really changing America for the better. The fight has only begun. At the moment the pro-life debate is a side issue in the main-stream media and in politics, we need to make it a major issue if you want to see miracles happen.

Praise be to the Great Physician for all Eternity!
