Injustice, right here, right now – in America! – is STAGGERING!!

October 24, 2008

I’ve done some research into abortion recently, and I’ve been absolutely blown away by the statistics. I’m ashamed to say that I was naive to just how devastating the situation is…

According to the Guttmacher Institute, in the United States:

– More than 45 million legal abortions occurred from 1973 through 2005.

– About 1.2 million abortions take place every year.

– Over 1/5 (22%) of all pregnancies (excluding miscarriages) end in abortion.

– At current rates, about 1/3 of American women will have had an abortion by age 45.

The video below is very disturbing, but I decided to post it because it helps us see abortion for what it truly is. Be sure you want to watch it before you do:

 

In addition to abortion, the rates of sex trafficking – right here, right now – is staggering… The video below is a preview to a documentary made on this awful, right-under-our-noses, reality:  

 

I’m grieved. And I’m convicted. The church needs to be more aware! We need to do a whole lot more! I need to do a whole lot more…
