Gary Bauer: Do the Math, That’s 1,176,000 Abortions a Year in America


Gary Bauer Reports:

Susan B. Moskosky, a top official in the Obama Department of Health and Human Services, published a report last week in the “Public Health Reports” journal. It contained thisdisturbing statistic: “Each year, approximately 2.8 million women have an unintended pregnancy. Approximately 42% of these end in abortion. . .”

Do the math: That’s 1,176,000 abortions a year.

Official government data is notoriously behind the curve when it comes to reporting on abortion. For example, the most recent government report on abortions performed in America was released in November and it only covered data from 2012.

That year, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control, there were 699,202 reported abortions. But if Ms. Moskosky’s figures are correct, that means there has been a shocking 68% increase in abortions in recent years.

One abortion is one too many in my view. But the notion that nearly 700,000 innocent unborn babies — more than 13,000 a week — AT A MINIMUM — are destroyed in the United States is unimaginable.

With all the headlines of terrorism, racism and idiotic quarterbacks, it is easy to overlook the weakest and most vulnerable in our society. And for all the talk about justice — social justice, environmental justice, economic justice — the taking of innocent life remains the greatest injustice of all.
