US News & Incorrect World Report

tragedy.jpgThe Jan. 29-Feb. 5 issue of U. S. News & World Report included this in an article by Lewis Lord, "A conqueror more lethal than the sword" :

Experts believe that in 1492 perhaps 10 million people lived above the Rio Grande - twice as many as may have inhabited the British Isles at that time. The hemisphere's population possibly exceeded 15th-century Europe's 70 million. But by 1650, records suggest that only 6 million Indians remained in the New World. The catastrophic loss of native life, wrote Alfred Crosby, author of The Columbian Exchange, "was surely the greatest tragedy in the history of the human species."

That is incorrect. With regrets that they in actuality win the title of Greatest Tragedy in the History of the Human Species, babies aborted worldwide have surpassed the one billion mark.

This according to the Guttmacher Institute, research arm of Planned Parenthood, which estimates 46 million babies are aborted around the world each year. So this statistic is just for the past 20 years. The U. S. Census Bureau estimates the world's current population is almost 6.6 billion, so no other comparison can possibly come close.
