Almost 150 Newtowns, Every Single Day

Screen Shot 2013-01-20 at 4.56.55 PMThis week is the 40th anniversary of Roe vs. Wade, the landmark Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion in America. Since the decision, over 56 million innocent children have been aborted, an average of 3,835 lives per day. That’s worth repeating: Every day around 3,835 innocent lives are taken by abortion, higher than any other cause, and yet this sad fact is known by so few of the public or rarely reported by the media.

In contrast, consider the public attention brought to Adam Lanza’s shooting spree in Newtown, Connecticut just over a month ago that took the lives of 26 people, including 20 second-graders at Sandy Hook Elementary who left this earth way too early.

The tragedy rightfully dominated public consciousness and the news for a week, and the aftermath is still being covered, as it should, as we attempt to discern how to reduce the incident of such attacks.

But should the tragedy of abortion be covered less than the tragedy of Newtown?

In terms of lives lost, the daily number of abortions equates to having almost 150 Newtowns every single day for an entire year for 40 straight years.

And yet there is no daily coverage of this fact. Why does Newtown shock us but not abortion?

Are the innocent lives taken by abortion not as equal, not as valuable to us?

Many would consider abortion an even greater tragedy as the child is not given a chance to live for even one moment on this Earth.

    Demonic.

      Yeah, not a liberal tear shed for the 56 million unborn taken while they slept in their mothers womb. Of course, covering this tragedy would not give the despots talking points in their attempt take away the firearms of law abiding Americans.

    That T-shirt in the picture should say “I am guilty of murder!”

      And, that great big smile means she’s “proud of it!” I wonder if she’s happy her mother chose “life?”

        All those that support Abortion, were born and alive now.

    The number of murdered babies is reprehensible and terrible. American women should be very very ashamed of themselves. God help America.

  • Phillip_in_TX

    It should be re-named “Planned Murderhood.” What is more dangerous, the battlefield, or an abortion clinic?

    • RacerJim

      An abortion clinic is far more dangerous than any battlefield.

    It is beyond my understanding how women can brazenly advertise that they have performed this dispicable act. If they were ignorant of what happens in an abortion, maybe. And I can’t understand their making abortion, the hill they want to die on regarding rights. Karma is a beatch. There is a Hindu scripture something to the effect. “Beware that you don’t wake up in some demon’s womb on some corrupt and vicious world.” Or in Christian philosophy, what you have done to others will be done to you. These women are shameless, only stupidity is an excuse.

    I am absolutely pro-life. I have three beautiful, and wonderful daughters, four grand-kids, and one great grand-kid that mean the world to me. I would not have it any other way, and for those of you reading this who haven’t watched a video of an abortion, especially those who may think it is okay to kill an unborn – you really should watch. I don’t believe in my heart that most of the would-be-mothers of these unborn babies could bring about the tragic end to their own child, if they saw what actually happens, during an abortion. To see a so-called “Doctor”, one who has purportedly taken the Hippocratic oath, lay out the tiny parts of a baby which has been torn apart while still inside it’s mother, just to make sure he/she got all the parts, will bring the truth glaringly home: It is murder, plain and simple, in the most gruesome fashion imaginable. Our problem is that we are part of a world that is becoming more and more “live and let live”, and damn the consequences.
    Responsibility for one’s actions, whatever those actions may be, is a non-starter. We, as a society, have found more and more excuses for more and more bad behavior in the last 50 years or so, (ever since Dr. Spock) and we need to get back to that time when there were two parents in the home, and kids were taught responsibility.

    Just think if the mothers of some of our present liberal/progressives had had a abortions. we just might have been a lot better off today.

  • dudley74

    I’m very happy my Mother chose life!

    • RacerJim

      But for mothers who chose life there wouldn’t be any abortion supporters. How ironic is that?

  • GrizzMann

    Almost 1,800 black babies are aborted on average every day. Why would the Racist President be opposed by that? Eugenics, Planned Parenthood’s objective.
