How many babies are aborted every year worldwide?

The short answer is, of course, too many.  One would be too many but, unfortunately, our world is several million times worse than that.  EWTN reports that a new study from the Guttmacher Institute (a Pro-"Choice" organization) shows that there were 41.6 million babies killed in abortions worldwide in 2003 (the statistic here lags for some reason and '03 data is new).

41.6 million!


In days of $2 trillion healthcare bills, 41.6 million might not seem like much.  But imagine if every year the entire population of Missouri was murdered.  That would be horrific . . . but that many deaths would pale in comparison to worldwide abortion numbers.  To come close to 41.6 million killed, you would have to include every man, woman, and child in Missouri and every single state bordering us (save Nebraska).  That's everyone in Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Kansas, and Iowa.

Imagine that many people being killed off every single year.  Every single year!

May God have mercy on us.

Indeed. We need mercy, and most won't ask for it or recognize the need. How can we as a nation, or world, have the gall to expect prosperity, goodness and peace when we murder our own progeny?
