The Unseen Holocaust

Since the Roe v. Wade decision 40 years ago, there have been approximately 55,772,015 abortions in the United States.  This is to say nothing of the untold number of babies killed by abortifacient contraceptives and "morning after" chemical abortions like RU-486 and "Plan B."  That translates to roughly 1.5 million abortions per year; over 3,300 per day; 137 per hour, every hour.


Total number of people killed in World War II: estimates range from 50 million to 70 million.

Total number of people killed in World War I: 37 million.

Total number of people killed by the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia: 1.5 million.

Total number of people killed by Stalin: estimates range as high as 60 million.

Total number of people killed in Mao's Cultural Revolution in China: estimates range as high as 20 million.

Total number of soldiers killed in the American Civil War, both Union and Confederate: 625,000.

Number of people who have died of AIDS (as of 2009): 30 million.

Think of it.  Since Roe v. Wade, we have had, in our abortion mills, the equivalent of one Second World War.  One and a half First World Wars.  37 Cambodian genocides.  Almost one Stalin regime.  2.7 Cultural Revolutions.  89 Civil Wars.  1.85 AIDS epidemics.  The only distinguishing feature is that the victims are nameless, utterly defenseless, and have never seen the light of day.

As long as we continue unrepentant in this course, we have no right to expect blessings on this country, and every reason to expect nothing but disaster.


  1. " right to expect blessings..."
    "...expect nothing but disaster."
    You got it!

  2. 137 babies killed per hour; that's awful. And there are so many couples that are looking to adopt babies.

  3. Powerful posting. Thanks for the comparisons. Makes me sick.

  4. Out of sight equals out of mind. The startling conclusion I have come to is that, in the end, people know they're babies. Not masses of tissue, babies. But as one young man said to me "Okay, it's a baby- so what? If my girlfriend needs an abortion, she needs an abortion." Their personhood isn't under attack so much as the overall value of all human life is under attack. Once you can convince people that human life is valueless unless you want it to have value, that's when holocausts and war crimes flourish. I am quite certain that in their hearts the Nazi officers knew that the Jews were "people" - they merely chose not to assign any value to that word.
