42 million abortions occurred worldwide last year, according to data compiled by Worldometers.
Those numbers exceed deaths related to traffic accidents, suicide, HIV/AIDS, and cancer.
Worldometers collects data from governments and other reputable organizations. The sources for the status of abortion were given by Sexual and reproductive health of the World Health Organization.
LifeNews explained: “Each of those 42 million abortions represents a living human being whose life was violently destroyed in their mother’s womb. Each unborn baby already had their own unique DNA, making them distinct from their mother.
“That DNA indicated if the child was a boy or girl, their eye and hair color, their height, possible genetic disorders and other disabilities, and much more. In most cases, the unborn babies’ hearts are beating when they are aborted, too.”
In the United States alone, 1 million babies are aborted every year. The rates have been declining the past decade but the practice is still one of the leading causes of deaths in the US.
Around 60 million unborn babies have died since the passage of Roe v. Wade in 1973, a terrible incident that will be remembered at the March for Life.
In a statement to the World Health Assembly in Geneva, the United States delegation criticized efforts to make abortion and issued a strong pro-life statement.
“We remind our fellow delegates that the International Conference on Population and Development forged international consensus that abortion should in no case be promoted as a method of family planning.”
The US statement continued: “The United States remains a stalwart defender and donor to maternal and children’s health, life, and wellbeing. And we will never waiver on that support.”
