Attempting to get global focus for President Obama’s war on cancer, Vice President Joe Biden called cancer a “constant emergency”. He added that it kills 3,000 daily in the United States alone.1 (The same article’s estimate is closer to 1,600 per day, still a tragedy.)
Speaking of constant emergencies, “there are over 3,000 abortions per day. Twenty-two percent of all pregnancies in the USA (excluding miscarriages) end in abortion.”2
Cancer research must be a high priority as it impacts so many lives, often indiscriminately, not by choice. Abortion kills and always by someone’s choice.
In addition to massive funding, curing the various cancers will take time. It cannot be willed overnight. Creating a more supportive pro-life society may require additional expenditures on the part of compassionate citizens and even governments if they become enlightened. However, not to abort is a decision capable of being willed overnight.
With such an achievable goal at hand, why isn’t there a war on abortion?
