It's A Child, Not A Choice

On January 22, 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that American women should have the legally protected right to abortion on demand. Since then, over 45 million babies have been killed as a result.
45 million. (45,000,000)

That’s more than the population (July 2005 estimate) of the following countries:

Afghanistan 29,928,987
Algeria 32,531,853
Argentina 39,537,943
Australia 20,090,437
Cambodia 13,607,069
Guatemala 14,655,189
Iraq 26,074,906
Spain 40,341,462
(The source of this information comes from the CIA world fact book)

There are several more countries that could fit into this list, but, you get the idea.

Speaking to pro-life rally participants today, President George W. Bush said:
“We're working to persuade more of our fellow Americans of the rightness of our cause. This is a cause that appeals to the conscience of our citizens and is rooted in America's deepest principles. And history tells us that with such a cause we will prevail. You believe, as I do, that every human life has value, that the strong have a duty to protect the weak, and that the self-evident truths of the Declaration of Independence apply to everyone, not just to those considered healthy or wanted or convenient. These principles call us to defend the sick and the dying, persons with disabilities and birth defects, all who are weak and vulnerable, especially unborn children.”

Public statements such as this from the President, plus his two recent appointments to the U.S. Supreme Court, should make pro-life advocates feel a little more confident about the repeal of Roe v. Wade, and it should cause a shrill knee jerk reaction from radical pro-abortion liberals.

I never realized how many had been killed-- esp. in perspective of the current populations of many well-known countries. Your list wasn't of some island nation in the South Pacific. Spain is a big, busy country.

Thanks for the info, even if it is disturbing beyond words.
