About Twenty-Five Percent of Global
Pregnancies End in Abortion
210 million image-bearers of God are formed every year in their mothers' wombs. Most are brought to term to be born, while many are lost to miscarriage. About twenty-five percent of them—56 million—end in abortion. This is more than all yearly global deaths from all causes, including disease, starvation, war, murder, accidents, old age, and more. What God has intended as the safest place on Earth for a child—her mother's womb—has become the most dangerous place.
Abortion is a deep offense against the preborn child, but it is also a direct attack on God, in whose image the preborn child has been made. Abortion not only ends a life, it is—according to Mother Teresa—“the greatest destroyer of love and peace.” This can be seen in the deep fractures throughout families, communities, and entire nations. All around the world, Satan is attempting to destroy human life and take hold of those affected by abortions—mothers, fathers, family members, and entire communities. These communities are in desperate need of Jesus Christ, His gospel, and His power to rescue people, heal hearts, and save souls.
