That's well over 57 MILLION!!! An inconceivable number for us to even wrap our minds around.
But the very sad truth is that 57,762,169 (at least) is the number of legal abortions in America since the January 22, 1973 Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision legalized abortion in our nation for any reason at any time during pregnancy.
Staggering, isn't it???
The world will never know the gifts God bestowed on each of those destroyed lives! Perhaps among those 57 million, one child would have discovered the cure for cancer. Or saved the lives of countless others by ridding the planet of the HIV virus. Or learned how to power our modern world through ways we cannot even imagine. Or invented the next breakthrough in communication or travel.
Or touched the lives of unsaved people groups by sharing the gospel in the far reaches of the globe.
Only God knows what a devastating loss to mankind are those 57,762,169 human beings who never had a chance to take their first breath.
Such a fallacy that abortion is a personal decision, only affecting the woman involved. Abortion affects us ALL! And 57,762,169 lives is way, way, WAY too many....
