As a mental exercise just to drive home the enormity of the apocalypse known as human abortion, let’s compare the casualties of the War on Babies to another well-known tragedy, the Vietnam War.
The Vietnam War Memorial is a pair of walls on which are engraved the names of all known American casualties of that war, numbering over 58,000. To achieve this vast number, the structure is a gargantuan 493 feet 6 inches long.
Not to take anything away from the victims of Vietnam, but the figures got me to thinking what a comparable wall for the humanists’ War on Babies would look like.
I did the math, and the numbers are staggering. In order to display the names of the over 53 million victims of abortion, a comparable wall would not be just hundreds or even thousands of feet long, but hundreds of thousands. Indeed, when all said and done, the unimaginable structure would measure a whopping 84.96 miles long.
Visiting such a memorial would take you at least a whole weekend for no other reason than that merely walking its length alone would take you about 28 straight hours.
In fact, the number of American deaths by human abortion dwarfs the total American deaths of all American wars to date—by a factor of about 39 times over.
When believers start to get things in proper perspective, we can begin setting our priorities straight as well. It’s long past time to #EndAbortionNow. You can begin getting acquainted here, and stay tuned for more.
