Are you or your children survivors of this genocide? Would you like your name to be listed within these rolls? Please leave a comment or send me an e-mail and I’ll add you/them to the list. And please, please pray for the end of this genocide.

Statistics for 1973-2006 were obtained from The CDCs abortion surveillance project. Statistics for 2008 are from the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute.

*Statistics were not reported by the states of California or New Hampshire from 1998 to the present. Alaska did not report from 1998-2002. Oklahoma did not report from 1998-1999. West Virginia did not report from 2003-2004. Louisiana has not reported from 2005 to the present. The children in these states murdered through abortion remain unnumbered, but not forgotten.

    wow…this is a real eye-opening post! I think it was a great idea to use your cousins and siblings to make a comparison!

  2. It’s really fascinating to see the numbers grow from a personal perspective. I like how you connected dots between family and the horror that is abortion.

    I had no idea that states were not reporting the numbers either. Appreciated that tidbit of info there at the end.

    Thank you for posting!

    Wow. This is incredibly sobering. Thank you for this reminder of the real people behind the numbers.

    (And on a much lighter note…goodness, you have a lot of cousins!)
