Much of the media spent large amounts of time reporting end-of-the-year statistics, but here’s one that is rarely mentioned: Worldometers, which gathers information from the World Health Organization, reports 42 million abortions occurred last year. In the U.S., there are 1 million abortions each year, and there have been more than 50 million abortions since Roe v. Wade was decided by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1973.
The 46th annual March for Life in Washington, D.C., is scheduled to remember and protest Roe v. Wade. The media rarely notes the number of people who descend on the capitol each year. They are a prayerful and peaceful but vigilant mixture of people of all faiths who abhor abortion and want Roe v. Wade overturned.
