According to the respected Worldometer website, COVID-19 deaths in 2020 reached 1.8 million, a truly tragic and devastating number. There is no denying that we have experienced a real pandemic, and many of us have lost friends and loved ones to this virus in the last 12 months.
Yet, for every person who died of COVID—or whose death was hastened by COVID—almost 25 died by abortion. This is as staggering, horrifying. These babies died in the womb by human choice.
Professor Thomas Williams summarizes these year-end statistics, also looking at other major causes of death: “Abortion was once again the number-one cause of death globally in 2020, with a record 42.7 million unborn babies killed in the womb, according to data provided by Worldometer.
“As of December 31, 2020, there were 42.7 million abortions performed in the course of the year, Worldometer revealed, while 8.2 million people died from cancer, 5 million from smoking and 1.7 million of HIV/AIDS.”
Overall, Williams writes, “Globally, there were more deaths from abortion in 2020 than deaths from cancer, malaria, HIV/AIDS, smoking, alcohol and traffic accidents combined, according to Worldometer statistics.”
The numbers are so high they are numbing.
But every number represents a precious human life, snuffed out in the womb by choice.
Yet there is more. According to the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute, an organization not known for inflating abortion statistics, the numbers are far worse. The website states: “Roughly 121 million unintended pregnancies occurred each year between 2015 and 2019.
“Of these unintended pregnancies, 61% ended in abortion. This translates to 73 million abortions per year.”
