    I found this statement quite interesting. The next time someone around you brings up the topic of enhanced gun control, ask them how they feel about this statement?

    :tear: Planned Parenthood kills an estimated 4,000 babies every day; before they ever make it to school. There is no need for any kind of gun! Simply, the unmitigated disregard for the sanctity of life! :tear:

    While the numbers are still abysmal and tragic and every single life counts I think in order to maintain credibility we need to make sure that our numbers are accurate.

    Although there are nearly 4,000 child killings committed everyday in the US the number performed by Planned Parenthood is about 1,000 a day.

    The point is just as valid with the accurate number.

    The "problem" here is that those who advocate abortions believe that all they are doing is removing nothing more than dead skin. Until someone realizes that the result of conception is a new living person - the argument statement above is in vain.

    I believe PP released stats recently saying that in 2011 they murdered 33,964 babies in the USA. So it actually works out to about 100 a day, at least here. Bad enough.

    I checked Christianity Today's fact checking site, that's where I got the numbers I had.

    The only point is that when we use inflated or inaccurate numbers we invite ridicule and it hurts our arguments in the eyes of those who oppose the prolife point of view.

    If you walked along Sheridan Road today, you probably noticed hundreds of tiny American flags lining the sidewalk, with signs declaring that there are 3,700 abortions each day. Today is the 34th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, as the signs also note. In today’s Daily, two students from Northwestern Students for Life, the group that put up the flags and signs, make the case that fetuses deserve protection. So are there really that many abortions in the United States?

    Just about. Nationally, there are about 1.3 million abortions each year, which works out to 3,562 abortions each day, according to the New England Journal of Medicine. That number was based on this report. The New York Times cites a similar figure.

    The number of abortions performed every day in the op was correct. It was just attributed solely to PP and that is not correct.

    Your numbers are more accurate and they get ~$500,000,000 in taxpayer money to perform these services!

    That is incorrect. The number is ~1,000 each day!

    Even one pp child killing a day is unacceptable. My only issue is that we do better in our argument when we keep our figures accurate.
