Leading Cause of Death in the United States

I am not vouching for the accuracy of the stats, but this seem at least approximately correct:
cancer?565,000 dead
diabetes? 71,000 souls lost to it
suicide? 36,000 every year
heart disease? a whopping 817, 000

abortion? 1,210,000

Take a minute, let that sink in.
Nope, didn't' accidentally transcribe an extra zero.
That was a million/

Every year.

One. Million. Two. Hundred. Ten. Thousand.

A million, two hundred and ten thousand.

All those precious, innocent little lives.

A million, two hundred and ten thousand.

Now think about how civilized we are.
