Abortion was the number one cause of death worldwide in 2019, with over 42 million children killed before birth throughout the year, figures have revealed.

Up until December 31, Worldometers counted 42.4 million abortions around the world.

The number is more than half the total number of deaths by every other cause (58.6 million).

Abortions dwarfed every individual cause of death, including overall deaths due to disease.

To put the number into perspective, 8.2 million people died from cancer, 5 million from smoking, and 1.7 million died of HIV/AIDS during the year.

In fact, there were more deaths from abortion in 2019 than all deaths from cancer, malaria, HIV/AIDS, smoking, alcohol, and traffic accidents combined.

Worldometers was voted one of the best free reference websites by the American Library Association (ALA).

The organization keeps a running tally through the year of major world statistics, including population, births, deaths, automobiles produced, books published, and CO2 emissions.

Based on the latest statistics on abortions published by the World Health Organization (WHO), it also records the total number of abortions in the world.

The true total number of abortions may be either lower or higher, however, as Worldometers relies on health and mortality statistics from the World Health Organization (WHO), which in turn relies on estimates from the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute, according to LifeSite News.

“(O)f the 56.3 million global abortions Guttmacher estimates annually, no more than 10 percent can be officially accounted for and only 23 percent have any basis in empirical evidence,” Abort73’s Michael Spielman has written.

“The other 77 percent are assumed based upon a complex statistical model that estimates” a variety of factors.

Most significantly, Guttmacher “assume(s) a constant abortion rate that is unaffected by the legality of abortion,” potentially to sway the findings in favor of the abortion lobby’s claim that pro-life laws are ineffective.

Worldometers found similar numbers last year, leading left-wing outlets such as Snopes to attempt to minimize the news not by disputing the numbers but by arguing that abortion should not be considered a “cause of death.”

Scientifically speaking, however, it is a settled biological fact that the embryos and fetuses destroyed by abortion are living human beings.

Worldometers tracks and estimates statistics in real-time on a wide variety of subjects, based on data from sources such as the United Nations, WHO, International Monetary Fund (IMF), and more.

It boasts recognition and citations from a wide variety of media outlets and academic works, as well as the endorsement of the American Library Association.

By the end of January, Worldometers has already counted more than 3 million worldwide abortions so far in 2020.
