Happy Thanksgiving: Give Thanks for Fewer Abortions

Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from him. (Psalm 127:3)

Here are excerpts from an article in TownHall.com today.

According to newly-released statistics from the CDC, the number of abortions in 2012 (the latest year available) were at “historic lows,” with approximately 13 abortions per every 1,000 women.

This is a continuation of past trends, and the abortion rate has been effectively halved since 1974, the first year after the Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade that legalized the procedure throughout the country.

About 699,000 abortions were reported to the federal government in 2012 — about 31,000 fewer than the year before.

For you, O Lord, are my hope, my trust, O Lord, from my youth. Upon you I have leaned from before my birth; you are he who took me from my mother’s womb. My praise is continually of you.(Psalm 71:5-6)

Have a happy day.
