One would be too many. This many is so devastating that it is hard to grasp.

This is estimated surgical abortions, I take it? Now that there is RU 486, there is another method of killing babies which can never be counted, since the woman takes the pill in the privacy of her own home.

Holocaust is not too strong a word, is it?

almost a billion in less than a century. i doubt if the Nazi exterminations and warfare killed as many as this per month

Edit, the links annual abortion average is 14 million, far lower than in my original post but far to many regardless

And people wonder "Where is the cure for cancer," or "Why can't we figure out another way to power our lives?" I have no doubt that many of those aborted babies would have grown up to discover cures for disease and make our lives better....The pro-aborts will say disgusting things like "all those babies would have grown up to become criminals, better dead than poor, etc." But every single one of those children was God's gift and deserved a chance to live.
