Are there more gun crimes or abortions in America every year?


Hey Jack.. That is such an irrelevant question.. Little babies in a womb aren't little babies at all.. They are like little lollipops. Next thing you know, you are going to ask if welfare contributes to crime and an attack on family structure.. LMAO!!! Cons are so weird!! Oh, about the lollipop thingy.. This might make a few women mad. Usually, they start talking about ureteritis.. Just a warning.


One is legal, the other isn't. The crimes should be addressed ... that's the only significant number.


Abortions. The following two texts are discussing data from two separate years (2009 for abortions, 2010 for gun deaths) however, I picked them irrespective of this because they were the most comprehensive analyses I could find regarding each subject matter. It's clear from this that abortion is substantially higher, "Abortion Surveillance 2009 In 2009, 784,507 legal induced abortions were reported to CDC from 48 reporting areas. The abortion rate for 2009 was 15.1 abortions per 1,000 women aged 15–44 years and the abortion ratio was 227 abortions per 1,000 live births. Compared with 2008, the total number and rate of reported abortions for 2009 decreased 5% and the abortion ratio decreased 2%. The change from 2008 to 2009 represented the largest single year decrease in the total number and rate of reported abortions for the entire period from 2000 to 2009. Additionally, from 2000 to 2009 the number, rate, and ratio of reported abortions decreased 6%, 7%, and 8%, respectively, to the lowest levels for this entire period. Women in their twenties accounted for the majority of abortions in 2009 and throughout the period of analysis. The majority of abortions in 2009 took place early in gestation: 91.7% of abortions were performed at ?13 weeks’ gestation, and of the abortions performed at ?13 weeks’ gestation, 69.8% were performed at ? 8 weeks’ gestation. In 2009, 16.5% of all abortions were medical abortions. Source: MMWR 2012-61(No. 8)." "In the U.S. for 2010, there were 31,513 deaths from firearms, distributed as follows by mode of death: Suicide 19,308- Homicide 11,015- Accident 600. This makes firearms injuries one of the top ten causes of death in the U.S. The number of firearms-related injuries in the U.S., both fatal and non-fatal, increased through 1993, declined to 1999, and has remained relatively constant since. However, firearms injuries remain a leading cause of death in the U.S., particularly among youth (CDC, 2001) (Sherry et al, 2012). The rates of firearms deaths in the U.S. vary significantly by race and sex. The U.S. national average was 10.2 deaths per 100,000 population in 2009. The highest rate was 28.4/100,000 for African-American males, more than quadruple the rate of 6.3/100,000 for white males. (CDC, 2009) The number of non-fatal injuries is considerable--over 200,000 per year in the U.S. Many of these injuries require hospitalization and trauma care. A 1994 study revealed the cost per injury requiring admission to a trauma center was over $14,000. The cumulative lifetime cost in 1985 for gunshot wounds was estimated to be $911 million, with $13.4 billion in lost productivity. (Mock et al, 1994) The cost of the improper use of firearms in Canada was estimated at $6.6 billion per year. (Chapdelaine and Maurice, 1996)"


I expect on this one you'll hear from those "liberals" who think De Nial is a river in Egypt. Good work! lol


If there were more abortions, there'd be fewer gun crimes.


You tell me

How is abortion good?
Abortion is good in that it does not allow the world to go unguided. If a woman prays to God and God tells her that her abortion is good, then it is good. And we must remember that God himself uses abortion on a daily basis. God looks to see if a child will be properly cared for, he checks...
