America’s Silent Killer: 48.5 Million Americans Lost
The Movement for a Better America, Inc. ^ | September 29, 2006 | Movement for a Better America

Posted on 10/11/2006 11:02:24 AM PDT by MBA4Life

It may sound like a scenario from a super-secret nuclear contingency plan, but a silent killer has eliminated a population equal to that of America's 60 largest cities. Forty-eight and a half million Americans have vanished without a trace! According to Dennis Howard, who heads The Movement for a Better America, "that's not some imaginary nuclear contingency plan. It is in fact the cumulative impact of nearly 34 years of abortion on demand.”

MT. FREEDOM, NJ - September 29, 2006 -- It may sound like a scenario from a super-secret nuclear contingency plan, but a silent killer has already eliminated a population equivalent to that of America's 60 largest cities.

According to a regular annual review by The Movement for a Better America, a non-profit, pro-life education organization headquartered here, "Forty-eight and a half million Americans have vanished without a trace."

"This is not some imaginary nuclear contingency plan. It is in fact the cumulative impact of nearly 34 years of abortion on demand,” says Dennis Howard, a former investigative reporter and market researcher who heads the organization and who has been tracking the nation's abortion statistic since 1992.

"What's amazing," Howard says, "is that the vast majority of Americans hardly seem to notice."

His organization doesn’t make these numbers up. They are all based on data collected by the Guttmacher Institute, the research arm of Planned Parenthood. “We simply take the most recent data and project it through the current period. Otherwise, there is always a 2-3 year lag in the estimates.”

Howard asserts, "The fact is that nothing has inflicted more permanent damage on our society than abortion. 48.5 million abortions is 43 times more than all the fatalities from all the wars in our nation’s history, including the ravages of the war on terrorism and the tragedy of September 11. Yet these numbers never seem to make the headlines.”

Howard, who began his career as an investigative reporter and later directed market research projects for major corporations, blames the media for their self-imposed censorship on the abortion issue. “A handful of casualties in Iraq will make the evening news, but the abortion industry will kill more people in two days than we have lost since 9/11, and that never gets a mention.”

”Imagine if we had lost 6,850,000 people in the so-called war on terror,” he said. “That’s how many children we have lost to abortion since 9/11."

Howard's analysis has uncovered a number of reasons for public apathy about the abortion toll:

“Politics can’t change things because of the extreme polarization between the two major parties,” he said. “That started when the Supreme Court decided Roe v. Wade by edict, instead of allowing normal democratic processes to deal with the issue.

“Roe v. Wade effectively split the country in three – left, right, and confused middle. So now we have politics by media sound bite and bumper sticker cliches instead of healthy, honest political dialogue.”

“In some ways, we’re like the ‘good Germans’ during World War II who never seemed to realize that there was a brutal holocaust going on,” Howard said.

Howard blames public apathy on the fact that the abortion industry operates behind a veil of protected secrecy. “Unlike the Germans, we don’t have industrial-scale concentration camps operating two miles out of town. Only 1 in 15,000 American women have an abortion on any given day, so no one notices. But if you multiply that by 365 days a year for 34 years, the total becomes astronomical.”

Howard has been tracking the economic impact of the abortion toll since 1992, when the count first reached 30.5 million. Since then, an estimated 18 million more babies have been aborted.

“The economic loss may be the least of our problems,” he said. “Abortion has also desensitized the culture to sex abuse, violence, and predation against children. Just look at what we see on television every night."

Nevertheless, Howard’s market research background led him to conclude that the trend had the economic impact of a major nuclear war.

“The human loss from abortion is the same as if all of our major metropolitan centers had been lost to a nuclear attack,” said Howard. “The only difference is that a nuclear war would be a dramatic, cataclysmic event, while abortions take place one at a time in the sanitized privacy of a medical clinic.”

“The long range impact on America's human resources is no different,” he said. “We measure the economic impact of other things like this all the time -- from alcoholism and drug addiction to AIDS and cancer. But the economic impact of losing a baby is far greater than when someone dies after a long life.”

A list of the top 60 cities with a population equivalent to the loss from abortion can be found on MBA's website: www.movementforabetteramerica.org

A few of the more obvious repercussions include:

Social Security: If half of the 48.5 million kids we aborted were working today, they would be contributing an additional $88 billion a year into the Social Security trust fund.

Taxes: The downstream loss in future tax revenues from abortion currently exceeds $18 trillion dollars. “Someone else will have to pay those taxes.”

The end of the Youth Market. “The 30% bite that abortion took out of the youth market is a major reason for the drop in daily newspaper circulation as well as increased competition for young audiences by other media. By supporting abortion on demand, the liberal media are killing off their own future audiences. Pro-choice politicians are doing the same thing. That’s why they have such a hard time winning.”

Labor shortages: There is a looming shortage of labor in critical fields such as nursing, teaching and even the armed forces. “We’re raiding countries like the Philippines for nurses today, and using citizenship as an incentive for immigrants to fill the ranks of the military. Where will that leave us in a major military crisis?”

Immigration: “The labor vacuum created by abortion is also related to the immigration crisis,” Howard claims. “Ross Perot had it wrong: The giant sucking sound was really the sound of illegal immigrants crossing the border from the south, not just jobs heading the other way. Right now, apples and peaches are rotting on the ground in Oregon and Washington because there aren’t enough workers to pick them.”

“As the Pete Seeger song says,” Howard concludes, “‘When will they ever learn?’”

Unfortunately, the law treats children like velveteen rabbits.

These 48 million were unloved, so they were not real.

Now you have the REAL reason local, state and federal governments turn their heads on illegal immigration.

I'm glad to see your post. I've been speculating that sub-replacement rate fertility is the real motive behind goobermint not doing anything about illegals.

My only question is are they smart enough to know the impact of a sub-replacement fertility rate.

From the early Clinton years I can recall Joslyn Elders bemoaning the loss of "our best and brightest" from AIDS (GRIDS). Yet she and others of her ilk "celebrate" the slaughter of the innocent millions, among whom might very well have been the incipient biochemist(s) who would go on to discover cures this and other lethal maladies.

We should consider these precious ones at least as important as humpback whales, the polar ice cap, or the rainforests. Don't ya think? No? Life has been cheapened.

Eleanor Smeal said on O'Reilly last night that 35% of American women had had an abortion. Is this true?

Well, it's virtually impossible for the United States to revert back to mostly one-income families...wouldn't you agree?

Sure...there would be more children born if mothers stayed home and raised children but to survive and enjoy a reasonable standard of living? Impossible, IMO.

I see your point. But usually, a troll or a ZOT poster likes better headlines, like " Bush/Cheney may have said" something or other...30 years ago.

Right. I've been saying for years that a county that kills off a million of its own citizens every year and then allows a million foreigners to cross the border illegally doesn't need "immigration reform" -- it needs a collective psychiatric examination.

It would be hard to say, since some states don't report abortion stats at all. The general figure is that one out of every 3 or 4 pregnancies ends in abortion, so over 33 years that's a LOT of women who would have had one.

Yeah, and certainly we all were "new" at one time. We'll see if this is one or not. My initial suspicion is that it is (a "hit and run" troll). BUT, there's only one way to tell -- sit it out and see if you *ever* get a response or not. That's how you tell.

P.S. -- I actually see that this is probably a poster either associated with the website (that is referenced), or has similar opinions to that web site, or is the webmaster (or founder) himself. BUT -- there is *no article* that matches what is put in here.

And it is *referenced* as coming from there. I simply *cannot find* the complete article -- as listed here. So, that's another problem with this poster.

You're referencing something on the main page of that web site, that you have for a "link" in this article. BUT, I *do not* see it there. Where is it?

And it appears that the item you have (for the first paragraph, which is italicized) is there, but is *not* part of an article -- at least not the one that is included here.

AND THEN, it appears that it is part of an article (*somewhere* maybe) but we don't have the link for the article. We only see a dateline for the article. Where is that article?

If you are the one making the comments, then make it clear that it's your comment. If you are quoting a part of a web page, them make that clear. If you are quoting *another* newspaper article (somewhere) -- then -- include that link, so we can see it. I can't make "up or down" of where you got what from your material included here.

what's the difference? isn't the content of the article that is the more important? The number of surgical abortions per year is a fact that can be easily found on the net.

I highly recommend reading Abortion: the Silent Holocaust. It was written by Fr. John Powell, S.J. (Click on “abortion: books” then scroll.) I believe it is one of the most important books on the subject ever written. This book has overwhelming importance for readers from high-school age onward, as well as adult study. The author speaks directly to the reader as few writers can. He takes you along his personal journeys from his studies in Germany and tour of the death camp in Dachau, through his work in the pro-life movement.

You said -- "what's the difference? isn't the content of the article that is the more important?"

It's by referencing links to verifiable sources (or even some source), as opposed to "vanity posts" that one is able to evaluate the veracity of claims made.

As it stands, I don't know if this poster made this up or made a vanity post, or is collecting information from a variety of sources, some trustworthy, some not.

So, in this case, it's more important to know the source in order to know if the content is correct or not.

have you ever read an article in a newspaper or posted on the FReerepublic from WND, NewsMax, National Review, etc.? Is their info. backed up by footnotes? No. It's a person giving a report, writing an article. So why is this article any different. We know that over 45 million surgical abortions were performed and know that depopulation is bad as we are now seeing in such countries in Japan, and a few in Europe.

You said -- "I don't know what your objection to the article is."

Here's my objection -- it does *not exist* at that web site. That's what the problem is!

Take a look at this first paragraph. Let's just look at the byline -- for example --




MT. FREEDOM, NJ - September 29, 2006 -- It may sound like a scenario from a super-secret nuclear contingency plan, but a silent killer has already eliminated a population equivalent to that of America's 60 largest cities.




I don't find that date (for the article) or the city that it was from. This is an indication that it is from *somewhere else* than that web site -- BUT -- it is indicating (by means of the referenced link), that it is from that web site. I don't see that it is.

I want the exact reference and the exact location. I don't find it. Who is the "author". I don't see it. I see that it references the web site, so maybe someone would think that it's authored by the web site owner -- BUT -- (once again), it's *not even on the web site* itself.

That's the problem...

Regards,
Star Traveler

P.S. -- AND..., I don't see that the original poster has responded or answered to clear up the issue. I thought that this was a "hit and run" post -- and it appears to be so.

You asked -- "have you ever read an article in a newspaper or posted on the FReerepublic from WND, NewsMax, National Review, etc.?"

Yes, I have -- and when I see that I can also *go to* that link and find it there -- *word-for-word* exactly as it's given here. If someone is changing something -- OR -- if they are posting something as from a web site AND IT'S NOT FROM THAT WEB SITE -- then that's FORGERY or misleading or lying. I haven't found out *where* that article is from *yet*. And the original poster is apparently a "hit and run" poster and not answering and *not* clarifying the issue.

So, that's a *real big problem* for me -- and I think it would be for anthing posted on Free Republic. Whatever we post here doesn't have to be *accurate* in terms of what the *original source* says -- BUT -- it had better be *EXACT* as far as *what* they say -- word-for-word *exactly*.

That's a big problem with this article.

I don't find this article at this web site. There is some *general information* that matches the "idea" of the article -- BUT -- *not* the article. If they are referencing this, I want to find the original source and this web site appears to *not* be the source for what was referenced and posted here on Free Republic. I would expect that *at least* we can reference *where* something came from. This appears to be an article from "somewhere else" -- but it's not from this web site, even if the "ideas" are similar.

P.S. -- The original author is not answering so it appears (at least to me) to be a "hit and run" post, and they just signed up today. Perhaps they don't know how to post things at Free Republic. Or, perhaps they are stirring the pot, or giving some misleading or false information. I don't know what it is. I just want to find the original source for the *exact quoted article* as given here.

Do a "search" on every page for *just* this alone. You won't find it anywhere!! It does not exist.

Is this a published article? Who is the author? Is it published in a newspaper and then referenced *in the web site*? Is it *only* from the web site and *not* published anywhere?

None of this is answered -- by means of the false way in which this was posted here on Free Republic!

I already went to that page and it did not have the *very first few words* of what you posted here!

There is no date (there is a date included with this Free Republic posting. Where did that date come from? Did you add it?

AND, before we even go further down the line on the issue, *your* name is *not* the poster's name -- AT ALL!

And continuing, the byline is not there *at all* on the web site, but it is indicated here on Free Republic. Where did that come from??!! Are you adding things, just to throw things in -- or -- are you quoting something from a web site (or not??)?

What we are supposed to be including here is an *exact quote* of what is included somewhere else.

AND, is this from a newspaper article (as it's supposed to be *misleadingly* indicated here in this Free Republic article)??

AND, where is the author of the article? Who is it? It doesn't indicate it here (on Free Republic) and it "seems" to indicate that the author is someone *vague* ("apparently" associated with the web site).

From the article posted *here* on Free Republic, one might guess (from its formatting) that it's a newspaper article posted. If it is -- then include the name of the paper, the date, and the author of it. If it's not -- then make that clear and don't *add* things that *ARE NOT* on the web site.

You're changing content when you do that. That's called lying and -- therefore -- one can conclude that your other information is just as invalid, by reference to what you've done here.

South Dakota 'Ground Zero' in Abortion War


Kim Shemon crooks an elbow around her four-month-old daughter and keeps a wary eye on her four-year-old son as she puts a donation on the table and picks up a "Vote Yes for Life" sign for her yard.





NOW, CONTINUING IN MY RESPONSE...

Now, if you were posting this, you would have all that information. I would go there and see that it was "By the NewsMax.com Staff"

And then, I would see the date of it -- "Wednesday, Oct. 11, 2006 3:06 p.m. EDT"

Following that -- I would see the title of the article -- "South Dakota 'Ground Zero' in Abortion War"

And then, I would see the first paragraph of the article -- "Kim Shemon crooks an elbow around her four-month-old daughter and keeps a wary eye on her four-year-old son as she puts a donation on the table and picks up a "Vote Yes for Life" sign for her yard."

ALL OF IT -- would be *exactly* as was printed in the NewsMax article and it wouldn't be altered or changed or anything!!

I would go there and *find it* -- EXACTLY as posted here on Free Republic. Otherwise, if someone makes *any changes* to it THEY ARE LYING when they post it.

P.S. -- And, also, you are *not* the poster of this information on Free Republic. I'm waiting to hear from the "hit and run" poster...

Nothing is backed up in the newsmax article, how do you know that kim sherman is a real person and vote yes to life is a real organization, they didn't provide a pic. of the person or a link to the organization. How do you know if Gov. Mike rounds signed a law? did you see a document with his signature on it? there is no proof. How do you know the Catholic Diocese of Sioux Falls printed cards? did newsmax provide a source?

What I know -- EXACTLY -- is that it came from a *named web site*. I can go to that web site and see it *EXACTLY* as it's posted here on Free Republic. I can see that it has a *date* that matches what is posted *here* on Free Republic. I can see that it has a *title* that matches *exactly* what is posted *here* on Free Republic. I can see that it has an author (whether it's the "staff" or a "named person", which is stated *exactly* as it's stated on the web site -- here on Free Republic.

If *any* of this information is -- changed, added to, subtracted from, emellished, quashed -- or *whatever* -- then -- it is A LIE!

And so, everything that is posted here is supposed to be *exactly* as it is elsewhere -- or else the poster is *lying* and promoting a "version" (in his own limited mind) that does *not exist* in *reality*.

As soon as the author comes back (or maybe not, since he appears to be a "hit and run" poster) -- we'll find out what he was doing and/or thinking...

Well, it's virtually impossible for the United States to revert back to mostly one-income families...wouldn't you agree?

That was a trap. Originally a second income gave a family a boost. But labor is also a matter of supply and demand. Increasing the labor force put downward pressure on real wages (against the upward pressure from increasing per capita productivity). The end result is that the two incomes now amount to one and neither worker can quit without a substantial reduction in the standard of living.

You ravage your gene pool. You probably have killed a third to half of offspring with high potential. In a kind of reverse eugenics, brighter, well off mothers have kiled their children at as least as high a rate as the poor.

My first point is that the cost of child care while a mother has a career outside the home is forbidding.

Taxes are confiscatory...to the point that child care and taxes clean out a lot of the 2nd family income...so abortion is chosen as the answer to maintain a standard of living.

I'm not figuring accidental pregnancies from 'hooking up'.

The post was from a news release on prweb http://www.prweb.com (search "48.5 million" + movement for a better america) that is the same as the post. It was based on the article posted on the movement for a better america website of which I am the author. http://www.movementforabetteramerica.org. My byline was left off the original article inadvertently.

I've been researching this topic for over 10 years and make no apologies for what I have written. Nor do I have time for petty squabbles. And, yes, I am new to FR. I will be back again when I have something worth sharing. Meanwhile, thanks to all who read and appreciated my post.

SUPPLY THE LINK!

*This* is the link (that should have been in the link up above, for this posting on Free Republic --

http://www.prweb.com/releases/2006/9/prweb443630.htm

It should have been indicated as a PRESS RELEASE from an organization, and then name the organization. That's much different than a news article. Press Releases are a "dime-a-dozen".

However, if you want to try and *promote* your web site, then just promote it *directly* and not try to use "subterfuge" to do it, pretending that it's a news article...



Well, here is the beginning of that PRESS RELEASE on the PRWeb Press Release Newswire --





America’s Silent Killer: 48.5 Million Americans Lost

It may sound like a scenario from a super-secret nuclear contingency plan, but a silent killer has eliminated a population equal to that of America's 60 largest cities. Forty-eight and a half million Americans have vanished without a trace! According to Dennis Howard, who heads The Movement for a Better America, "that's not some imaginary nuclear contingency plan. It is in fact the cumulative impact of nearly 34 years of abortion on demand.”

Mt Freedom, NJ (PRWEB) September 29, 2006 -- It may sound like a scenario from a super-secret nuclear contingency plan, but a silent killer has already eliminated a population equivalent to that of America's 60 largest cities.




If you're trying to give us a PRESS RELEASE, just say so and reference the press release (give the direct link and people can reference it directly). That's what "links" are for. AND, we all know what a PRESS RELEASE is all about...

There's nothing new under the sun...

Tertullian about 197 A.D.


"In our case, a murder being once for all forbidden, we may not destroy even the fetus in the womb, while as yet the human being derives blood from the other parts of the body for its sustenance. To hinder a birth is merely a speedier man-killing; nor does it matter whether you take away a life that is born, or destroy one that is coming to birth. That is a man which is going to be one; you have the fruit already in its seed" (Apology 9:8 [A.D. 197]).

"Among surgeons’ tools there is a certain instrument, which is formed with a nicely-adjusted flexible frame for opening the uterus first of all and keeping it open; it is further furnished with an annular blade, by means of which the limbs [of the child] within the womb are dissected with anxious but unfaltering care; its last appendage being a blunted or covered hook, wherewith the entire fetus is extracted by a violent delivery.

"There is also [another instrument in the shape of] a copper needle or spike, by which the actual death is managed in this furtive robbery of life: They give it, from its infanticide function, the name of embruosphaktes, [meaning] "the slayer of the infant," which of course was alive. . . .

"[The doctors who performed abortions] all knew well enough that a living being had been conceived, and [they] pitied this most luckless infant state, which had first to be put to death, to escape being tortured alive" (The Soul 25 [A.D. 210]).

"Now we allow that life begins with conception because we contend that the soul also begins from conception; life taking its commencement at the same moment and place that the soul does" (ibid., 27).

"The law of Moses, indeed, punishes with due penalties the man who shall cause abortion [Ex. 21:22–24]" (ibid., 37).
