This week was the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the landmark trial which legalized abortion in the United States of America. Since then, over 55 million abortions have been performed in our country.
Let me do the math here. The current US population is 315,220,547 (source: US Population Clock), while it was 211,357,000 in 1973 (source: US Census Bureau). This means about 103,863,547 children were born since abortion was legalized. In the same period of time, 55,854,140 children were not (source: US Abortion Counter).
As you might have noticed, the number of aborted children in the past forty years is over half the number of non-aborted children. Percentage wise, it's a 65-35 split. 65% of the children were born, while 35% of them were aborted. I should consider myself fortunate for being born during this time period; my odds of being carried to term were a little less than two thirds.
