Abortion numbers have been falling sharply almost every year since 1990. Each of those decreases represents thousands of unborn babies whose lives have been saved.
But that life-saving shift didn’t just happen by itself. Each of those decreases also represents the support so many of you have given to the Right to Life movement so we can save innocent lives.
Last week, we received more good news. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control reported another 5% drop in abortions between 2012 and 2013. Abortion statistics are always reported years after the fact, and the CDC numbers don’t include data from every state.
But comparing previous CDC data to the new report suggests there were tens of thousands fewer abortions in 2013 overall than the year before, which continues the life-affirming trend of the past 20+ years!
Every one of those babies saved would be worth all our labor, our prayers, our support. But when you consider that some 600,000 innocent unborn children are now being saved every year from abortion, compared to the numbers in the early 1990s, it is a wonderful story of success!
On this Giving Tuesday, I hope you will open your hearts to giving as generously as you can to the life-saving work of National Right to Life that has made this success possible.
We are thankful for every gift that ever helped us save a life.
And we welcome – respectfully ask for – your generosity today and in the future so we can save even more unborn babies.
The creators of the idea of Giving Tuesday thought it would be a day where we all look to where we can do good as we give thanks around the holidays. I can think of no better way to make a difference than to help us reduce abortions further still – and save even more precious unborn lives in the rest of 2016 and 2017.
Thank you for your prayerful consideration and God bless you for all you do!
