Due to scientific advancement, we know now that life truly does begin at conception.
Let us examine the fiscal impact of abortion since Roe Vs Wade passed in 1973 and abortion became legal.
Consider that essentially an entire generation has been eliminated, as over 50 million babies have been aborted over the past 40 years.
A generation who could have been contributing to our society by paying taxes, creating jobs, buying homes, having families of their own, contributing to social security, and of course, voting – to name a few.
Also, there’s the annual fiscal impact of abortion to you and I as taxpayers. For example, Planned Parenthood – according to their recent 2012 statement – performed over 333,0000 abortions last year which generated an estimated $155 million in income to their organization.
Yet, you and I as taxpayers funded Planned Parenthood over $542 million in 2012, which represents 45.2 percent of the group’s total annual budget.
And consider the health ramifications of abortion, which carries a high risk of breast cancer, as well as emotional issues to both men and women, which often surface well into the future after their abortion.
When we think of abortion, let us step back from the sole choice aspect, and consider abortion for what it really is:
- An entire generation who could have been contributing to our society has been eliminated.
- A fiscal impact so significant that we as a country can not afford it.
- Abortion causes great physical and emotional harm to our citizens.
We as a country can do better than this.
Let us all look forward to the day when Americans can welcome all life, and that all life will be protected by law.
