It is said “a picture can be worth a thousand words,” but it can often be far more true (and hugely significant for those working on Capitol Hill) that a few numbers can save millions of lives.
Consider the following worldwide data from Worldometer, from Jan. 1, 2020 to Oct. 12, 2020, as of 10:36 GMT:
Covid-19 Deaths Worldwide: 1,081,944
HIV/AIDS Deaths: 1,313,556
Alcohol Deaths: 1,954,324
Smoking Deaths: 3,906,180
Cancer Deaths: 6,417,459
DEATHS BY ABORTION: 33,254,430
Covid-19 kills primarily among the elderly and those with underlyng health conditions that compromise their immune systems. There are still noticeably more HIV/AIDS deaths worldwide than Covid-19 deaths, and nearly twice as many alcohol-related deaths.
And look at the figures for deaths by smoking and cancer — the former has taken the lives of nearly four times as many people as Covid-19, and the latter more than six times!
But none of those begin to compare with the number of deaths caused by abortion, the willful destroying of innocent life in the womb. To date this year alone, we human beings around the world have killed 33 unborn boys and girls for every one person who has succumbed to Covid-19.
Psalm 139:15-16 tells us that God formed each of us while we were yet in our mother’s womb. And more than 33 million times this year alone, we have told God to step aside because we are going to kill another one of His creatures.
