Christians and conservatives have been waging war against the unjust killing of human beings since Roe v. Wade, however, it has seemed like an uphill battle for decades. A new study, however, shows that we still have a long way to go, but abortions have hit a historic low.

As Christians, we know our battle cannot stop until the entire war is won and abortion is abolished from the face of the Earth. And further, we know that the gospel of Jesus Christ alone is the only sword we have in the battle and all other actions we take must be grounded in our belief that all people — including the unborn — are made in the Image of God and we have a duty to protect them.

As Big Tech continues to censor conservative publications like ours, we must increasingly rely on supporters to continue our work. Much of our work, particularly as it revolves around a biblical worldview on social and cultural issues, isn’t even allowed to be shared on social media anymore.

That is biblical justice.

The following report is from CBS News that details the findings of the CDC study showing how much abortion rates have dropped.

CBS NEWS — All statistics measuring abortion in the U.S. — the rate, the ratio to live births, and the absolute number — reached a “historic low” in 2016, according to new data released Wednesday from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

In 2016, the most recent year available, the government agency reported 623,471 abortions, the lowest number the CDC has ever seen since it began tracking the procedure in 1969, according to the study. That’s a 2.3% decline from 2015, when the CDC recorded 638,169 instances of the procedure. 

During the same time period, the abortion rate dropped to 11.6 abortions per 1,000 women of reproductive age and the ratio fell to 186 abortions per 1,000 live births, according to the CDC’s data. The agency compiled data from 48 reporting areas — 47 states plus New York City. (California, Washington D.C., Maryland and New Hampshire did not report data.)

The government agency’s data were similar to results released earlier this year from the Guttmacher Institute, a research organization that supports abortion rights. According to Guttmacher, the abortion rate was 13.5 abortions per 1,000 women aged 15 to 44 in 2017, the lowest rate recorded since Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion nationwide. That’s an 8% decline from 2014, the last time Guttmacher calculated the United States’ abortion rate, and 54% lower than when the group recorded the peak rate in 1980.
