Unfathomable Impact of Abortion

I recently viewed “Divided Hearts of America,” a documentary on abortion in the United States, and it reminded me of the death toll resulting from abortion worldwide.

As noted at Abort73: “Accurate worldwide abortion statistics are difficult to come by since large portions of the globe do not record or report annual abortion totals.”

There are on the order of 50 million abortions around the world every year. That would mean, as mentioned in “Divided Hearts of America,” that between 2000 and 2020 about one billion people died due to abortion.

How can we comprehend such a number? Well, using the 2020 census results for Colorado Springs, one billion represents the population of about 2088 cities the size of Colorado Springs. In other words, in two decades, abortion has utterly destroyed 2088 cities the size of Colorado Springs, or 104 such cities every year.

But that is not the whole story. The descendants of those one billion people have also been destroyed, a number that is impossible to ever calculate.

We won’t be graced with all the blessings these innumerable people would have bestowed on our society. What did we miss?

How much more will we miss as abortion continues its destruction of the world?
