55,875,00. Let that number sink into your mind for a moment. 55,875,000. By comparison the number of lives lost in every conflict the United States of America has been involved in, including the Civil War, is roughly 1.4 million. The Holocaust, which is considered the greatest tragedy of this century, claimed the lives of 5.8 million. 55,875,000 is 10 times that number.
55,875,000 is the number of children aborted in the 40 years since Roe vs. Wade was decided. This decision legalized abortion and sanctioned the killing of children in the womb. Sadly, 55,875,000 is not a static number. It grows by around 1.2 million people a year. This fact means that by the time I am 67 there will be over 110,000,000 killings by abortion in this country. Or to put it another way, 100 times more killings by abortion in this country than casualties of war.
