Today being Sanctity of Human Life Sunday and with the March for Life approaching, everyone should be aware of two facts related to abortion in Pennsylvania:
- Abortions performed in our state have dropped in each of the last six reporting cycles (by more than 6,000 babies).
- The latest yearly number of abortions performed in PA is the lowest amount on record (32,108). That’s less than half of the highest total ever in a given year (in 1980 it was the highest at 65,777).
While we are still witnessing far too many babies being killed every year, there is some encouragement in seeing that we’re getting closer:
