Abortion Was the Leading Cause of Death Worldwide in 2023

More human beings died in abortions than any other cause of death in 2023.

Over 73 million babies were killed by abortion world-wide in 2023. 

That's more than the combined population of the UK and Ireland.

In Northern Ireland, over 2,000 babies were killed by abortion in the past year. 6925 babies have been killed since abortion was legalised in 2020. This is almost double the number of people killed during "the Troubles" [see https://www.preciouslife.com/news/1184/6924-unborn-babies-killed-by-ni-department-of-health]

Contrasting the abortion numbers to other causes of death, including cancer, HIV/AIDS, traffic accidents and suicide, abortions far outnumbered every other cause. By contrast, an estimated 10 million people died from cancer in 2023, 6.2 million from smoking, 17 million from disease, and 2 million died of HIV/AIDS. Deaths by malaria and alcohol are also recorded.

With 67.1 million people dying last year from a cause other than abortion and 140 million people dying in total from abortion and all causes, that means abortions accounted for almost 52% of every death around the world last year.

Unborn babies are not recognized as human beings even though biology indicates that they are unique, living human beings from the moment of conception and they die brutal, violent deaths in abortions.

The abortion number is incomprehensible, but each of those 73 million abortions worldwide in 2023 represents a living human being whose life was violently destroyed in their mother’s womb. Each unborn baby already had their own unique DNA, making them distinct from their mother. That DNA indicated if the child was a boy or girl, their eye and hair color, their height, possible genetic disorders and other disabilities, and much more. In most cases, the unborn babies’ hearts are beating when they are aborted, too.
