When the Drudge Report linked Kristen Hawkins’ piece about being “overwhelmed” by the 55 million deaths of unborn children since Roe v. Wade became law in 1973, it had the intended effect. For me, anyway.
It’s hard to believe: 55 million people who should be here, aren’t.
So I Googled “55 million.” Here’s what I found.
There were 55 million status updates per day on Facebook in 2013.
Americans use nearly 55 million paper clips a day.
55 million meals are served in Disneyland parks each year.
55 million Americans watched Prince Charles wed Lady Diana on television in 1981.
55 million is 10% of children under the age of 5 worldwide today.
55 million is the population of Italy.
55 million people died from 1939-45 in World War II, including the holocaust and Chinese revolution.
In 2011, an estimated 55 million people died worldwide.
And since 1973, 55 million people have been legally killed in America because the Supreme Court decided they have no right to life.
This is why we March, no matter what the weather.
