Every day in America, 50 babies . . .

The Alan Guttmacher Institute, which is the best source
for abortion statistics in the United States, reports, “Sixtyfour
percent of [abortion] providers offer at least some
second-trimester abortion services (13 weeks or later), and
23 percent offer abortion after 20 weeks. …11 percent
of all abortion providers offer abortions at 24 weeks.”
The institute also indicates that of the approximately 1.2
million abortions in the United States each year, some
18,150 are performed at 21 weeks or more. Of the 40 states
that reported in 2005 to the Centers for Disease Control,
32 states reported abortions of babies 21 weeks or older.

This means that every day in America, 50 babies the size
of a large banana are dismembered and decapitated – and
these include healthy babies of healthy mothers…and it’s
happening legally.
