For You From The Word

You may be surprised to learn some of the facts about abortion – particularly its sheer numbers and how deeply it has penetrated our culture. Thousands of American lives are lost each day to abortion. If you are prepared with solid facts, you’ll be better equipped to defend the cause of life.

Facts about abortion

  • Incidence of abortion in the U.S. remained unchanged between 2005 to 2008
  • 100,000 Americans are aborted monthly
  • The number of abortions in the U.S. peaked in 1990 at 1.6 million
  • There are at least 1,793 abortion providers in the U.S.
  • Roughly 16% of abortions a year (199,000) are chemical abortions, using the abortion pill mifepristone (RU-486) or Methotrexate, increasing a woman’s risk of hemorrhages, ruptured ectopic pregnancies, or serious infections
  • There have been 49,551,700+ legal recorded abortions in the U.S. to date

Facts are a powerful ally in the fight for life.

For You To Pray

Omnipotent Father,
Equip me with the facts I need to defend life. Give me opportunities to use facts to help others see truth.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
