Abortion Statistics

Abortion creates a wound on our nation’s psyche which bleeds onto all sorts of aspects of American life

By Maria V. Gallagher, Legislative Director, Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation

The clergyman had recently gotten word of a new assignment which would take him away from the congregation where he had launched his ministry. But before he left, he gave a sermon that I believe will always be etched in my memory.

He said that, whenever he caught sight of a baby, he believed he was seeing the smile of God.

There is something heavenly about an infant’s grin. It is an instant mood-elevator, an expression that conveys a joy that is contagious. It is difficult to nurse a frown, when a baby is smiling in your direction.

Which makes the cruelty of abortion all the more ghastly. It is an effort to snuff out a human being with a divine spark—a soul of limitless capabilities. It also severs the enduring earthly bond between mother and child.

No matter what clever soundbites the abortion industry might invent, nothing can hide the fact that abortion is the taking of an innocent human life. It creates a wound on our nation’s psyche which bleeds onto all sorts of aspects of American life. Our political institutions are compromised, our economic life drained because of the deep-seated problems that the abortion death toll causes.

I recently read a bizarre op-ed piece, signed by representatives of churches that have turned against the most vulnerable among us by promoting abortion. It is unconscionable that purported “faith leaders” would use their influence to push a pro-abortion agenda

For each abortion eliminates an unrepeatable human being, and leaves a woman to grieve the tragic loss of her child. A child who longed to live, and who carried the smile of God.

My father used to ask, “Who weeps for the victim?” The question is especially pertinent when the victims number more than 63 million—and counting.

I look forward to the day when the weeping will turn into dancing—when abortion is finally unthinkable, and those precious smiles of God are protected, once and for all.
