A recent report from pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute shows that over 20% of all pregnancies in the year 2020 were terminated through abortion.
This staggering statistic, in stark contrast to the national decline of abortions between 1980 and 2017, is gut-wrenching and proves that the propaganda perpetuated by the abortion industry has an effective impact.
Biblical commentator and President of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary R. Albert Mohler states it is “an assault upon the nation’s birth rate,” in reference to the contraceptive movement and abortion movement in tandem.
National Review reports that one probable reason for the increase was the rise in chemical abortion, or abortion by mail, which climbed to 54 percent in 2020. For part of that year, a judicial ruling suspended the requirement for women to receive medical consult prior to obtaining the abortion pill, allowing them to receive the chemical abortion drug via mail.
Other factors such as the fear of financial pressure during a pandemic, as well as the fear of being out in public for regular physician’s consults during pregnancy, and the efforts in some states to fund abortion through the Medicaid program, have also been cited as possible contributors to the increase.
The real travesty is the societal and governmental exploitation of pregnant women, who are brainwashed to believe that there are no other options, their baby is not yet a life, and there will be no negative repercussions from the decision to murder their child.
The abortion industry preys on the vulnerability of women in America and throughout the world, manipulating their emotions for monetary gain. It is criminal, and should be treated as such.
After all, successful abortion results in the violent end of human life.
