I received this in an email today from Stand to Reason, the online ministry of Greg Koukl.
According to Time magazine, September 11, 2001, was “the bloodiest day on [American] soil since the Civil War.” When two jumbo jets slammed into the World Trade Center in New York followed by two other plane crashes—one exploding into the western section of the Pentagon and the other disintegrating into a field near Pittsburgh—2,973 people perished.
The terrorist attack on America was evil and tragic, but Time magazine was wrong. 9/11 was not the bloodiest day on American soil since the Civil War. The number of human lives snuffed out on that fateful day was less than the number of children that die every single day, day after day, for over 35 years by abortion right here in the “land of the free.”
Since 48% of pregnancies are unplanned and half of those end in abortion, the most dangerous place for a baby to be in America is resting in her mother’s womb.
That last sentence must be one of the most tragic things that could ever be said about American culture.
