Rep. Vicky Hartzler (R-Mo.), speaking at the 40th annual March for Life on the National Mall on Wednesday, said more Americans were killed through abortion than died in the Revolutionary War, Civil War, World War I, World War II, Korean War, Vietnam and Gulf War combined.
“Think about it – in 2008, more children from abortion than Americans died in the Revolutionary War, Civil War, World War I, World War II, Korean, Vietnam and Gulf War combined. This must stop!” said Hartzler, one of several House members who attended the pro-life rally, marking the 41st anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion.
In 2008, there were 825,564 abortions reported to the Centers for Disease Control.
