China Has Aborted 336 Million Babies since 1971

This, according to that country's own records apparently.

According to World Magazine's Jamie Dean, this number is "equvalent to the U. S. population".  Of course, the U. S. population would be much larger without our country's own abortions, government protected if not government sponsored.

A new estimate published by the National Right to Life Committee indicates there have been an estimated 54,559,615 abortions [in the U.S.] since the Supreme Court handed down its 1973 Roe vs. Wade decision allowing virtually unlimited abortions.

-from a 1/23/12 post in, a post a year old.  So the figure today would be greater.

I would suggest that the collective culpability of our nation is greater than China's, given our cultural and religious history, and the peace, freedom, and prosperity with which God has blessed us for over two centuries.  Think of what China has had to deal with in the last two centuries.  In the 20th Century alone, think of its exploitation by the West, its invasion by Japan, its civil wars, and the Cultural Revolution.  I don't say that to excuse China, because it also had a profound penetration by the Gospel in that century.  I am saying it to elucidate more fully our own moral situation here in the United States.
