The "official" Transgender Day of Remembrance website claims that between 1970 and 2012, 717 transgender individuals were murdered around the world. That's an average of 17 murders per year. Sound bad?
Well, in 2012 according to the FBI 144 infants (under 1 year of age) were victims of homicide in the United States. Sounds worse to me!
And then, there are legal abortions in the U.S. alone. According to the American Life League (Abortion statistics.) it is worse than the first two statistics I've noted. Let's see what the stats tell us about abortions.
Total number of abortions in the U.S. 1973-2011: 54.5 million+
- 234 abortions per 1,000 live births (according to the Centers for Disease Control)
- Abortions per year: 1.2 million
- Abortions per day: 3,288
- Abortions per hour: 137
- 9 abortions every 4 minutes
- 1 abortion every 26 seconds
Did Kerry stop and make a big deal about this? NO...he cried about a transgender minority! Where do Liberals put their priorities? Where they can find voters (another subject).
