It's a numbers game really...

It's a numbers game really... Take a look at these statistics to gain perspective on abortion in America. In the end, it's a deadly, horrific, sinful numbers game.

Since 1973, there have been over 50,000,000 abortions in the U.S. But let’s be honest, that number is too big to wrap our heads around. So let’s break that down into who those children could have become:

There are 2.1 doctors for every 1,000 Americans (691,400 in 2012). Therefore, over 105,000 doctors were killed before their first patient was served.

There are .3 writers for every 1,000 Americans (129,100 in 2012). Therefore, over 4,500 writers were killed before their first work was crafted.

There are 5.1 musicians for every 1,000 Americans (167,400 in 2012). Therefore, over 255,000 musicians were killed before they heard their first note.

There are 2.3 police officers and detectives for every 1,000 Americans (780,000 in 2012). Therefore, over 115,000 police officers and detectives were killed before their graduation from the academy.

There are 2.8 teachers for every 1,000 Americans (955,800 in 2012). Therefore, over 140,000 teachers were killed before their first class.

There are 1.04 computer programmers for every 1,000 Americans (343,700 in 2012). Therefore, over 52,000 computer programmers were killed before they learned to type.

There are .04 professional athletes for every 1,000 Americans (14,900 in 2012). Therefore, over 2,000 athletes were killed before they ever touched a ball.

These stats are not exact; they are estimations by a guy who knows very little about math. But I do know these numbers are easier to grasp, and to me, grasping the numbers makes it much more traumatic.

*Stats were calculated by taking the number of jobs in each designated field from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (hyperlinks), divided by total population (rounded to 330,000,000). That gave us the percentage we used to find the “per 1,000” and number killed by abortion.
