Click Here To See If The Number of of COVID-19 Related Deaths Exceed The Number of Abortions

It’s not even close.

But don’t take my word for it. Open your favorite internet search engine and search “covid-19 deaths” and then search “abortion statistics 2020.” See what you find.

I’ll admit, it may be difficult finding super current abortion statistics for 2020. COVID-19 numbers will be a little more accessible as it’s being reported every day. Try this: if you can’t readily find abortion statistics for 2020, try searching for 2019. Or 2018, or 2017, or 2016, or…well, you get the point. Any year will do.

Does it concern you the fuss we’re making over COVID-19 deaths for a virus that’s under a year old, from 2019 to be exact,* and we have multiple years of abortion statistics to compare it to?

Not sure how to look it up? Sometimes these numbers can be overwhelming. Here, I’ll help: The Wall Street Journal reported as of April 30, 2020 there have been 61,000 deaths in the U.S. attributed to COVID-19. This number is still under the total number of abortions performed in 2017 and 2018 (combined) in Illinois alone.

Only one of these we’re actively fighting (hint: it’s not abortions).

Only one of these we’re going bankrupt over (hint: it’s not abortions).

We’ve turned our culture upside down to fight COVID-19 in order to save lives…so let’s save some lives.

We must put an end to abortion.

*Yes, that’s what the “19” in “COVID-19” refers to.
