The Centers For Disease Control (CDC) report the following causes of death in the United States for the year 2006:

Number of deaths: 2,426,264

Death rate: 810.4 deaths per 100,000 population

Life expectancy: 77.7years

Infant Mortality rate: 6.69 deaths per 1,000 live births

Chronic lower respiratory diseases: 124,583

Accidents (unintentional injuries): 121,599

Diabetes: 72,449

Alzheimer’s disease: 72,432

One statistic is missing.  How many deaths by abortion were there in 2006? The total is over 1,206,200 unborn humans dying.  Consequently, if that 1.2 million is added to the 2.4 million deaths that the CDC reports, then abortion is the cause of death for 1/3 of all deaths in 2006.

In the year 2002 there were slightly over 2.4 million deaths reported, but without the 1,293,000 abortions included in that statistic that year. The ratio is even more than 1/3 of all deaths caused by abortion.  Since 1973 approximately 50 million unborn humans have died that are excluded from government death statistics.

What Can We Do About It?


To start there are many activities this week marking the 37th anniversary of Roe v Wade.  Most states will have events, but there are two major national marches and events in Washington DC and San Francisco.  If you can’t make it to those there’s a great new opportunity called the Virtual March For Life where thousands have already signed up.  Let’s remember the unborn every day of the year.  The following videos explain more about the events.
