Skip to comments.Question: How Many Innocents Killed by abortion and/or illegal aliens on a weekly basis?
Posted on 12/15/2012 11:53:17 AM PST by SoFloFreeper
Like most people, I was repulsed to hear about the murder of innocent children by a lunatic in Connecticut.
While I understand a crime of this magnitude probably warrants a response, if only in rhetoric, by the federal government, I also wondered why other less "visible" deaths are ignored.
Look, we FREEPers publish almost on a weekly basis some story or stories about innocent people dying because of the action of someone in these states ILLEGALLY.
We also recognize that every day, with no real medical necessity, innocent babies are torn from the womb of their mothers.
These actions happen "one at a time", and not in one "mass" action, so they go unrecognized. Alas, the political class (and increasingly, our society) has come to consider death by illegal alien and death by abortion as "normal".
I ask: does anyone have reliable sources that provide tallies on the number of innocent people killed by abortion and illegals in our nation?
According to the Guttmacher Institute there were 1.21 Million abortions in 2008 (last year they have full results for).
last I heard, there are about 1.2m abortions per year in the US
which is about 23,000 per week
or about 3200 every day
(I often wonder about the hypocrisy when I see liberals wringing their hands over kids getting killed... yet fight tooth and nail for abortion)
I don’t think the abortions count. I’ve never heard the Metrosexuals in Pink on ESPN whining about the number of children killed by the abortion crowd ever mentioned on any of their pre-game shows.
Fifty five million legal abortions reported since the law passed in 1973 in the United States.
That doesn’t count early, undetected and unreported abortions due to the abortifacient pill.
It does not count the abortion we export to third wirld countries.
It is completely and utterly relative to the massacre which occured yesterday, as it is related to God being pushed out of our schools, leaving them truly unprotected from evil such as this.
Trying to turn yesterday’s mass shooting into a discussion on abortion will probably not have the desired effect. In fact, many will find it reprehensible.
Someday, I believe some Muslim terrorists will seize a school (remember Chechnya when Putin first took over? Some lunatic Islamofascists took over a school?) and strike fear in the hearts of Americans.
And Obama and the media will be rushing to a microphone “Let’s not jump to conclusions!” Just like he did when that Muslim “cleric” murdered innocent soldiers at Fort Hood.
But there is no crime scene, no police reports, and no news reporters on TV every 10 minutes showing us what happened. Out of sight out of mind, who could even imagine a nation as great as ours killing 55 million innocent children? But the world will condemn us if we water board a mass murderer.
Excellent point! The performance by 0bammy, crying crocodile tears, loses a lot of it's dramatic effect when you note that he advocates the killing of the unborn and newly born.
Which is why I qualified the reason for starting the thread (which no one is forced to engage in, btw): deaths of innocents that occur one at a time versus deaths of innocents that occur all at once.
Both are terrifying and wrong and repulsive. Right now, one of these categories shocks us—and the other doesn’t.
Yeah, but the general devaluation of life that permeates society is instructive.
Because most Americans don't equate abortion with gunning down a 5-year old. While you may think it is the same thing, a lot of others will disagree.
The mass shooting was a horrible tragedy for the victims, their families, their friends, and their whole community.
Now is not the time to pile on with political agendas — whether it’s about gun control, abortions, or illegal aliens.
At the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington DC on February 3, 1994, Mother Teresa stated: And if we accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another?"
Indeed, if we cannot protect the life and liberty of these smallest versions of ourselves, even with their so-called "imperfections," then Mother Teresa's words take on significant meaning.
Nothing can diminish the pain and loss which has been inflicted upon the CT community. Political leaders who may use that loss to lead a "national discussion," however, must not be allowed to limit the "discussion" to one focusing on inanimate weapons in the hands of a criminal or deranged portion of the society. Neither can it be used to emphasize only the so-called "progressive" political view.
The "discussion," to be worthy of the tragedy which prompts it, must also include a deeper discussion on the meaning and purpose of life at all its natural stages. Mother Teresa's words are worthy of consideration.
According to this, illegal aliens murder 12 Americans daily.
EIGHTEEN CHILDREN DEAD is a profitable week for a Planned Parenthood Clinic.
In Florida, the average would be about 1480 babies killed per week.
“What you do to the LEAST OF THESE my brethren, you do it also to Me.” The LORD Jesus Christ, Matthew 25:31-46
If a baby in the womb is not the LEAST of us then who is ???
