Leftists abort 898 American babies every day; mass murderers, terrorists don't even kill one American per day

Liberal media

(NaturalNews) There has been much outrage expressed in recent years over incidents of mass murder in the United States. In addition, politicians, foreign policy and national security experts have warned of the dangers of the ISIS terrorist movement, and have decried the group's murderous brutality directed at unarmed men, women and children.

There has been far less handwringing over the lives lost to abortion, however, and that silence has been deafening especially since a series of videos in which Planned Parenthood officials haggle with actors posing as "clients" over the sale of body parts from aborted babies.

As reported by CNS News, according to the latest data from Planned Parenthood, published in its 2013-2014 report, shows that the organization performed a total of 327,653 abortions in a single year - or an average of 898 abortions per day.

CNS News further breaks down the figure:

From Oct. 1, 2012 to Sept. 30, 2013, Planned Parenthood performed 327,653 abortions. Over the course of those 365 days (or 8,760 hours), that averages out to 898 abortions per day and 37 abortions per hour.

The difference in lives lost isn't even close

While much of the liberal-dominant mainstream media has largely ignored the videos and the unlawful selling of body parts by Planned Parenthood beyond standard initial reporting, mass shootings almost always get much wider play. For weeks and even months after each incident, the mainstream media continues to "advance" the storyline, or at least that what they call it; in reality, the MSM is simply echoing calls for more gun control. They "advance" that singular narrative in part by interviewing additional pundits and politicians who are advocating against the Second Amendment.

And yet, when comparing daily deaths from shootings versus lives lost each day in the country's Planned Parenthood abortion mills, the disparity is stark.

According to the FBI's Crime in the United States - 2012 report, the latest available, there were a total of 8,855 gun-related homicides in the country. Handguns made up the bulk of those homicides (6,371); rifles - including the so-called "assault rifles" that are regularly besmirched by the MSM and left-liberals - only accounted for 322, less than half of homicides committed by "hands, fists, feet, etc." (678).

So, broken down, the number of gun-related homicides per day in 2012 came to around 24.3 per day - far fewer than the 898-per-day abortion total. If we break down the number of people killed in "mass murders," that figure is less than one per day. And, of course, the incidence of terrorism in the U.S. is even more rare.

"Shockingly unprofessional"

That said, the dearth of reporting - not outrage, per se, but just reporting - of the Planned Parenthood scandal by the MSM is being noticed, and by some highly influential social commentators and analysts. In a wide-ranging interview with Salon, Camille Paglia criticized left-leaning mainstream media for all but ignoring the story.

"Now let me give you a recent example of the persisting insularity of liberal thought in the media. When the first secret Planned Parenthood video was released in mid-July, anyone who looks only at liberal media was kept totally in the dark about it, even after the second video was released," she said.

"But the videos were being run nonstop all over conservative talk shows on radio and television. It was a huge and disturbing story, but there was total silence in the liberal media, " she added. "That kind of censorship was shockingly unprofessional. The liberal major media were trying to bury the story by ignoring it."

And this, from a former member of Planned Parenthood.

Nevertheless, "I was horrified and disgusted by those videos and immediately felt there were serious breaches of medical ethics in the conduct of Planned Parenthood officials," she said.

Some Americans obviously will disagree with Paglia, but what is not debatable is the glaring discrepancy between the number of lives lost daily to abortion versus those lost to a much more often maligned and talked about cause - gun-related homicide.
