The facts on late term abortion, a shocking death toll

According to Planned Parenthood's Guttmacher Institute 4.8% of all abortions are performed after 17 weeks. At around 1.2 million abortions each year in the US that's around 60,000 abortions performed late into pregnancy.

Based on 2010 numbers from the CDC, that's more deaths from late term abortions than from influenza each year, and on par with the annual death toll from diabetes. Late term abortions kill almost twice as many people each year than do suicides.

Pro-abortion lobbyists say there are "virtually no" abortions performed that late, but the number of people killed each year by late term abortions is more than the Astrodome can seat.

That's how many babies are shredded alive every year late into pregnancy.
