Death by AbortionUpdated: July 21st, 2017Created: 21/07/17
Although the meaning of the words 'life' and 'death' are questionable, let alone the meaning of life, the colloquial term of being a conscious consumer may help in this case.
When does a foetus become a conscious consumer and is that really the beginning of life.
Although conscious consumer may seem a fit description it may still include relatively dumb beings, that is dumb to the more grown up human values.
Still it seems fair to consider aborting a human foetus the act of killing, though not statistically murder.
But the statistics are: that death by abortion
in the England and Wales account for 27% of deaths and
in the USA that figures rises to 37%
The Guardian . . . published a chart showing . . . death (in 2010) in England and Wales. They list 493,242 fatalities . . . they don’t include, . . 189,574 deaths by abortion . . . 27% . . .
. . . in the United States, . ~ . they account for more than 37% of deaths . . .
To put that percentage in perspective, 15.3% of that 10,677 die from heart disease (the leading cause of death according to the CDC) 14.5% from cancer, and so on.
