According to the Centers for Disease Control, there were 619,591 legal abortions in the U.S. during 2018. That’s an average of 1,698 lives lost per day.

COVID-19 is also a life issue: 3,055 people died from COVID-19 on Dec. 9 in the U.S. The daily death rate is rising.

We need to work for an end to abortion and we need to do our part to slow the spread of the coronavirus. Specifically, we need to wear masks, socially distance and support restrictions that will reduce the spread of the virus.
