While not typically recognized by the governments of major nations as a leading cause of death, the abortion procedure kills millions of unborn babies each and every year around the world, and 2020, pandemic and all, was no different.
In fact, it abortion was the leading cause of death, a fact which takes on particularly poignancy after watching the global economies of the world fall to their knees for the sake of stopping the spread of a virus that has taken fewer lives than pregnancy termination.
How is it that abortion has become so commonplace that even a historic global pandemic can’t claim as many lives as this immoral practice?
A new report from Worldometers reveals that more human beings died due to abortion than any other cause worldwide in 2020, Life News reports.
The independent site collects data from governments and other reputable organizations and ascertained that a stunning 42,655,372 unborn babies were killed in the womb last year.
This number, Life News notes, “far outnumbered” any other cause including cancer, HIV/AIDS, traffic accidents, suicides, and of course, the coronavirus.
For comparison, 1,830,979 people are recorded to have died of COVID-19 while 8.7 million died from cancer, 5 million from smoking, 13 million from disease, and 1.7 million from HIV/AIDS.
Worldometers estimates that roughly 59.6 million deaths occurred worldwide in 2020, a number which excludes unborn babies killed in abortion.
“Unborn babies are not recognized as human beings even though biology indicates that they are unique, living human beings from the moment of conception and they die brutal, violent deaths in abortions,” Life News notes.
“The abortion number is incomprehensible, but each of those 45.6 million abortions worldwide in 2020 represents a living human being whose life was violently destroyed in their mother’s womb. Each unborn baby already had their own unique DNA, making them distinct from their mother. That DNA indicated if the child was a boy or girl, their eye and hair color, their height, possible genetic disorders and other disabilities, and much more. In most cases, the unborn babies’ hearts are beating when they are aborted, too,” they add.
In the United States, just under 1 million unborn children are aborted annually.
While abortion rates have been declining, it still remains the leading cause of death nationally.
“An estimated 62 million unborn babies have been killed in abortions in the U.S. since Roe v. Wade in 1973. In January, pro-life advocates will gather for the annual March for Life in Washington, D.C. to remember the anniversary of that infamous decision and call for restored protections for the unborn,” Life News notes.
