Globally speaking, more than 42.3 million unborn babies were terminated before leaving the birth canal this past year, making abortion the leading killer of humans by a longshot.
Data compiled from government databases and other reputable organizations by the group Worldometers shows that abortion far outpaces cancer, HIV and AIDS, traffic accidents, suicides and all other primary causes of death by a wide margin – though you're unlikely to ever hear this from the mainstream media.
Believe it or not, abortion almost kills more human beings than all other causes of death combined.
"Worldometers estimates about 58.6 million deaths world-wide in 2019, but that number does not include unborn babies' abortion deaths," reveals Harbingers Daily.
"By contrast, 8.2 million people died from cancer in 2019, 13 million from disease, and 1.7 million died of HIV / AIDS. Deaths by malaria and alcohol are also recorded."
As it turns out, unborn babies are not afforded human personhood status by health authorities or official government bodies, which is why they're rarely, if ever, mentioned in statistics about the leading causes of death.
Worldometers recognizes unborn babies as human beings, though, which is why it included this data as part of its latest analysis. But you'll be hard-pressed to find similarly inclusive data from any mainstream sources.
"The abortion number is incomprehensible, but each of those 42 million abortions represents a living human being whose life was violently destroyed in their mother's womb," Harbingers Daily notes.
"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."
As disturbing as it truly is, the data also shows that the vast majority of these 42 million abortions occurred when the unborn victims' hearts had already begun to beat, further proving their personhood.
While abortion rates have thankfully been dropping in the United States ever since Roe v. Wade was decided back in 1973, there are still about one million unborn lives that are terminated within our borders every single year.
This is vastly more than the number of children being harmed or killed by flavored e-cigarettes, by the way, which President Trump recently decided to ban because he's worried that they're destroying "our families."
A potentially sizeable number of human babies are also being murdered after leaving the womb, we recently reported, as infanticide grows increasingly more prevalent in our depraved and dying society.
Based on current population figures and historical data, the U.S. has murdered at least 61 million unborn babies since 1973, which amounts to nearly 20 percent of our current national population (based on an estimate of 330 million people currently living in America).
This is an absolutely horrific number – though even just one unborn child being murdered through abortion is horrific. How did our country, which was founded on Christian principles, slide so far into the abyss as to regard child sacrifice as an acceptable form of "birth control?"
Eliminating prayer in our public schools certainly didn't help, and neither did implementing nihilistic atheism as a replacement for intelligent design and the recognition that human life is precious and made in the image of God.
