ACCORDING to data provided by Worldometer, a free statistics website, 42.6m abortions took place around the world, which dwarfs the number of deaths from cancer (8.2m), road traffic fatalities (1.4 m), or death from Covid-19 (1.8m).

42.6 million babies lost through abortion is a catastrophic death toll.

These are the latest statistics published by the World Health Organisation (WHO).
