Abortion has become the No. 1 killer of human beings on the planet.
This is according to The Worldometer, a website monitoring international births, deaths and other vital information. Its abortion stats come directly from the World Health Organization.
Comparatively, 1.9 million people are dying annually from the China virus. That's less than 1/20 the rate (5%) of prenatal homicide.
In just the United States, more human beings die each year from abortion than from heart disease, stroke and accidents combined.
And these deaths are only from surgical abortions.
Human Life International reports around four times as many preborn children are killed by the common birth control pill than by surgical abortion. The secondary mechanism in the pill makes the mother's uterine lining impossible for the tiny child to attach to when conception does occur, flushing the tiny child out without even the mother's knowledge.
Dr. Bogomir Kuhar of Pharmacists for Life estimates between 8 and 13 million preborn children are killed annually in the United States alone — only some 10% percent of these are surgical abortions.
Between surgical and chemical means of killing the unborn, abortion has become, by far, the world's No. 1 killer.
