Happy Roe v Wade!

by Susan Olsen

In order to properly celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Roe v Wade, I offer the following:

Below are famous genocides of the 20th century.  The table ranks them in order of the estimated number of human beings slaughtered and tells us the times we would need to commit those same genocides again in order to match the aggregate slaughter of unborn children racked up by mothers and doctors since Roe V Wade was decided in 1973.

Fun fact:  You’d have to murder every person currently living New Hampshire more than 41 times to match R v W.
