The following comes from a Jan. 2 story on The Christian Post.

There were approximately 41.95 million abortions carried out around the world in 2018, an organization that tracks death statistics reported.

Christian Daily Reporter was one of a number of websites to note the statistics on Worldometers on December 31, which issues live tallies on global births and deaths, based on statistics published by the World Health Organization.

The website, which is now displaying the statistics for 2019, said that 8.2 million people died from cancer in 2018, while there were 1.7 million victims of HIV/AIDS.

Overall, the deaths by abortion outnumbered those from cancer, malaria, HIV/AIDS, smoking, alcohol, and traffic accidents put together….

The live abortion tracker on Worldometers reports that there have been 165,000 global abortions as of Wednesday morning, the second day of the New Year.
