Abortion Accounted for More Than Half of Deaths Worldwide in 2022

According to statistics compiled by Worldometer, the number of abortions worldwide in 2022 surpassed 73 million, which made it the leading cause of death—52% of a total of 140 million deaths—and thus surpassed all other causes put together.

Worldometer is an independent organization that collects and publishes data received from governments and various organizations, and makes estimations and projections based on these figures.

In the United States, it is estimated that between 1,500 and 2,500 abortions take place every day. Close to 20% of all pregnancies in the United States—except miscarriages—end in an abortion.

For the year 2020, the Guttmacher Institute reported 930,160 induced abortions in the United States, at a ratio of 14.4 per 1,000 women, Worldometer reports.

If we compare the abortion figures to other causes of death, including cancer, HIV/AIDS, road accidents, and suicide, abortions far outnumber all other causes.

In 2022, an estimated 10 million people worldwide died of cancer, 62 million died of tobacco-related diseases, 2 million died of HIV/AIDS, and 17 million died of other illnesses. Thousands of people also died from malaria and from alcohol.

The total number of deaths rose to 140 million people, including 73 million from induced abortions and 67 million from other causes, meaning that abortions represent close to 52% of deaths worldwide in 2022.

It is appalling to see that the rate of abortions does not stop increasing throughout the world, and to note the ever more pressing demands of large international organizations, like the UN, for expanded abortion and the possibility of killing children until the last day of pregnancy. It seems that nothing can stop this frenzy of murders and blood.
