Yesterday was the anniversary of Roe v. Wade.
My deepest and most heartfelt thank-you to those mothers who carried their babies to full term even when it was inconvenient, or embarrassing or negatively impacted your schooling or career.
I also thank the legions of foster parents, parents by adoption and the social workers who facilitate them.
To frame the magnitude of the raw numbers of abortions:
Number of babies born into slavery in the United States between 1778 and 1865: 7.9 million*
Number of babies aborted in the United States 1973-2019: 61 million (source)
Number of black babies aborted in the United States 1973-2019: 18.3 million (source)
*Number of slaves born based on US Census data and an assumed life expectancy of 40 years. Four million of those born into slavery lived to see freedom.
Now New York toying with abortions right up until birth. So sad, so wrong ! So many murdered.ReplyDelete
