Abortion, a leading cause of death globally in 2019: reports

Published 07 January 2020  |  

Statistics from the Worldometers show abortion as the leading cause of death globally with more than 42 million procedures performed across the world in 2019.

"The abortion number is incomprehensible, but each of those 42 million abortions represents a living human being whose life was violently destroyed in their mother's womb," authors Steven Ertelt and Micaiah Bilger wrote in their LifeNews article.

"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."

According to World Health Organization, around 40 to 50 million abortions are performed annually across the world, which is about 125,000 a day. Then, within first three days of the New Year 2020, around 375,000 abortions would have been performed internationally.

LifeNews reported that in 2019, 13 million people died from disease, 8.2 million from cancer, 5 million from smoking and 1.7 million from HIV/AIDS. The number of deaths from all these reasons sums up to 27.9 million, which is a little more than half compared to the number of deaths due to abortion last year.

With an estimated 42.3 million deaths, abortions is the leading cause of death globally.
