Letter to the editor: Abortion is the No. 1 killer

To protect U.S. citizens, billions of taxpayer dollars are spent through government agencies like the Department of Homeland Security (DHS); Centers for Disease Control (CDC),; National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA); Environmental Protection Agency (EPA); Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA); etc.

And yet, our government is not doing one thing to eliminate the number one cause of death in the United States. In fact, this “killer” is even protected by our government and subsidized with U.S. taxpayer dollars.

How can that be you ask? And the answer is: Too many people have been brainwashed to believe that a woman has the right to choose whether her unborn baby lives or dies. And as a result, abortion is now the number one cause of death in the United States.

Here are the statics on the number of deaths in the United States each year – and the cause:

  1. Abortion: 1,133,652
  2. Heart disease: 614,348
  3. Cancer: 591,699
  4. Chronic lower respiratory diseases: 147,101
  5. Accidents (unintentional injuries); 136,053
  6. Stroke (cerebrovascular diseases): 133,103
  7. Alzheimer’s disease: 93,541
  8. Diabetes: 76,488
  9. Influenza and pneumonia: 55,227
  10. Nephritis, nephrotic syndrome, and nephrosis: 48,146
  11. Intentional self-harm (suicide): 42,773

Don’t you think it is time we came to our senses and put a stop to this horrendous, ungodly procedure?
