Compare and contrast

Since Roe v. Wade there have been some 58 million abortions in the United States.  Such a huge number is hard to comprehend, but watching this  video, only 4 ½ minutes long, will give you a far better sense.  58 Bells for the Unborn

Why is it so immensely powerful? As the numbers spin and whirl across the screen, like a kind of demented Dow Jones figure. a bell tolls each time the cumulative abortion count is shown. That alone would be enough to grab your attention.  But in addition, the numbers roll directly under a map of the United States with the states in yellow. State by state “disappears,” representing the ever-mounting numbers of children who have disappeared over time.

Whatever someone’s view is on abortion, this video will help them grasp the immensity of the loss of life which is the real legacy of Roe v. Wade.
