Silent Genocides

January 11, 2021

In 2020 over 42 million abortions were conducted worldwide. Moreover, in Europe alone, births of babies with Down Syndrome (DS) falls by half as DS prenatal testing increases.

Two among the many genocides – daily and silently perpetrated worldwide – deserve attention: aborted babies and abortions of babies who had been diagnosed with Down Syndrome (DS).

1) According to data compiled by Worldometer, a website monitoring statistics in real-time, over 40 million abortions are performed worldwide annually, and 42.6 million abortions were conducted worldwide in 2020 – as it appeared on website’s homepage on New Year’s Eve.

In 2020 the total number of deaths worldwide, excluding abortions, was nearly 59 million. By comparison, more than 13 million people worldwide died due to communicable diseases, more than 8 millions due to cancer, 5 millions due to smoking, 2.5 millions due to alcohol. And what about covid deaths? Official statistics unanimously assert that in 2020 worldwide “confirmed covid deaths” were nearly 1.8 millions.

2) A study recently published in “The European Journal of Human Genetics” found that the number of babies with Down Syndrome (DS) who were born in Europe fell by half while prenatal testing for DS increased, leading many women to choose to abort children diagnosed with DS.

The paper, titled “Estimation of the number of people with Down syndrome in Europe”, examined the years 2011-2015 to determine the number of babies born with DS across all countries in Europe, and compared that data to estimates of how many babies would have been born with DS in case they had not been aborted.

Study says: “For Europe, 2011–2015, we estimate 8,031 annual live births of children with DS, which would have been around 17,331 births annually, absent selective terminations. The estimated reduction of live birth prevalence was, on average, 54%, varying between 0% in Malta and 83% in Spain. As of 2015, we estimate 417,000 people with DS are living in Europe; without elective terminations, there would have been about 572,000 people with DS, which corresponds to a population reduction rate of 27%. Such statistics can be important barometers for prenatal testing trends and resource allocation within countries. Disability awareness initiatives and public policy initiatives can also be better grounded with these more precise estimates.”
