Background and Commentary: A
The Origin of the Project
Every person who
looks at them (regardless of their position on
abortion) will say, "See. That's how big you were in
mommy's belly..." You see, they have no
trouble seeing their children as fully human during
A few years ago we wondered what the real cost of
We knew it had to be more than just the
numbers (which are not even accurate due to minimal
reporting). So we
spreadsheet and tried to get some idea of the total
economic impact of abortion.
Frankly, it is almost beyond comprehension. We have
systematically removed more than 60 million individuals from
our country. People who never had a chance to grow,
innovate, produce, provide, buy, sell, love, grow. This is
the source of our housing crisis (we've killed all the
buyers). It's the source of economic slowdown (we've
killed all the innovators and workers).
Of course, the pragmatic argument gets one's attention.
But it does not replace the real issue: Somehow we have
chosen to accept the outright killing of human beings.
If we tried to do this to a dog or horse or a cat, or
attempted suicide, or cut off our limbs, we'd be arrested.
Yet every day, every 24 seconds, a defenseless human is cut
up, salted out, has its brains sucked out and more. Why?
Because we've been convinced the infant in the mother's womb
not a real person or we just don't care that they are.
Every year at our local fair we show the box of
infants at various stages of growth (7 weeks through 30
weeks). The models feel like real babies, same weight and
size. Every person who looks at them (regardless of their
position) will say, "See. That's how big you were in mommy's
belly..." You see, they have no trouble seeing their
children as fully human during pregnancy. So what is
the difference? What is the difference? You tell me. Don't'
bother, you cannot. Abortion is murder and it's that simple.
Where are the people?
Recent headlines indicate the effect: We are missing millions of
'replacements' for key fields and tasks. This 'demographic
winter' effect is a serious issue. And what do expect? We have
tampered with the design of creation.

Accuracy of the Data: Scarier and Scarier
Getting accurate abortion statistics is nearly
impossible. Other figures are based on government reporting
and IRS averages. Please do not attack this project on a
statistical basis. I know and you know the figures are
general. Even if this is off by 10%, 20% or more, it
is still a staggering number (and is likely much worse than
the sheet shows).
The data on chemical abortions is estimated. Dr Bogomir
Kuhar, executive director of Pharmacists for Life
International, estimates that chemically induced abortions
would increase the base numbers by 2 to 3 times. Please
visit their website at
http://www.pfli.org for more information.
What is the difference between chemically induced
abortions and surgical abortions?
All legal, medical, and ethical research points to
conception as the only logical definition of the
beginning of new life.
Chemically induced abortions are caused by birth control
pills and devices that cause a fertilized egg to abort and
are therefore no different than surgical abortions.
Surgical abortions are procedures that occur typically
after 7 weeks and in most states can be performed all the
to delivery. Surgical abortions use a range of techniques
and procedures including chemically induced death,
dismemberment, removal of the babies brains, and other
gruesome techniques. Please review the methods at the
excellent website, Abortion Education at
http://www.abortioneducation.org. The abortion methods
section starts at this page
Our data begins at Roe v Wade in 1973. But the birth
control pill was widely available in the early 60's. It is
impossible to estimate how many babies were killed in in the
years between then and 1973.
It Gets Even Scarier
And we haven't touched the obscene amount of money that
flows through the abortion industry from insurance, taxes,
and other public funds. Nor have we discussed the staggering
emotional toll on the mothers and fathers of these children
who have for the most part been duped into accepting this as
an acceptable alternative to dealing with the results of a moment of
passion. Sooner or later they realize what they've done. Nor
have we discussed the long term medical implications of abortion
and the related costs.
And for what? To be free from a most sacred
responsibility? For a moment of sexual pleasure? For that
we've terminated millions and millions of innocent lives?
Sex is an important part of our experience. But it is not a
reason to kill. You want to have sex? Use a barrier
contraceptive or self control. But don't kill the product of
We spend millions of dollars a year protecting the lives
of our citizens, our children, the elderly, the handicapped,
and criminals. Why? Just because they escaped from their
mother's vagina? Is this the new Berlin Wall? Is it the
new window to freedom? Really, any person who puts an iota
of thought into this will realize the absurdity of the
Don't Make This Mistake
|We weep for mistreated animals and sigh when we see a
dead cat on the road. We decry murder and injustice. We comfort couples who have
had miscarriage. But we ignore the cries of our fellow
humans who are chopped up like fruit in a blender, burned out of the womb by
acid, and have their brains
sucked out even moments before birth. What have we become?
This is perhaps the most critical issue facing our
country. Our housing market will not recover. Our economy will not grow. We are
close to the tipping point. Unless we turn this trend of death to life our
country is headed to a slow, painful, descent.
In response to this data many people will say, "Wow. But
where would they live?" Or, "How could they find jobs?"
These are completely fallacious arguments. These are not
reasons to kill babies. The fact is our economy is
struggling because of the loss of talent, life, industry,
and innovation. So what are you going to do with this? You
must decide if you will act on this. Abortion is murder and
we are all allowing it to continue to destroy lives and our
