There are disturbing reports coming from England and Wales as national statistics show that more than a quarter of all deaths in the countries are caused by abortions.
The numbers were released by the Office for National Statistics of the U.K. and offers a complete accounting of the mortality statistics for all deaths that occurred in 2010.
The report was divided into two parts; major causes of death and death from external causes. The report listed the total number of deaths and the resulting cause or factor.
The report listed a total of 493,242 deaths in England and Wales from “all causes” in 2010. This number includes 224 babies who died “before, during or after birth.” However, the 224 babies who died were not represented in the 189,574 human deaths from abortion in England and Wales in 2010.
Adding the total number of pre-born babies who died as a result of abortion in 2010 to the total number of human deaths in England and Wales for that same year produces an overall total of 682,816 deaths. This leads to 27 percent or 189,574 of the 682,816 deaths being caused by abortion.
