A man shouting ‘death to Christian’ kills one and injured four in a machete attack on two churches in Spain

A man armed with a machete attacked the members of two Catholic churches in Spain on Wednesday, Jan 25, 2023, leaving at least one dead and four injured, The Telegraph reports. One of the injured, a priest, is in serious condition with a neck injury. According to witnesses, the man entered the churches in Algeciras located in Southern Spain, shouting ‘death to Christians’ and ‘Allahu akbar’. Authorities believe it could be a terrorist attack. Police have since arrested a 25-year-old Moroccan, who they believed acted alone. The man had been issued deportation orders a year earlier.

It costs more to charge an EV, than fill a gas-powered vehicle in Britain

People promoting electric vehicles told us that they were cheaper to operate than gas powered vehicles. Well, that green dream may soon be coming to an end. A British study says it is now cheaper to fill up a gas-powered car in England than an electric one as the price of electricity in that country has soared, The Telegraph reports. According to a report by AA, electric vehicles cost more per mile to operate than gas-powered vehicle, a difference of 16.18 pence per mile for an EV compared to 14.45 pence per mile for gas. This is the equivalent of £10 more per fill. And with the British government considering a ban on the sale of petrol vehicles over the next few years, the demand for and cost of electricity will only continue to rise.

WEF speaker told not to use the words God, religion or faith in his talk about ‘keeping the faith’

At the recent World Economic Forum (WEF) annual meeting held in Davos, Switzerland, the organization actually held a session on ‘keeping the faith’. However, there was one major caveat, the speaker, Farhan Latif, was told not to mention ‘God’, ‘faith’ or ‘religion’ during his speech, LifeSite News reports. “Before I jump in, I want to offer a trigger warning for the audience. As I was preparing for this session … they told me, ‘Don’t use the words religion, faith, and God,’ and so I just ask people to translate that to ‘mindfulness,’ ‘purpose-driven,’ ‘spirituality,’” said Latif who serves as president of the El-Hibri Foundation. It was probably a joke and though Latif’s comments were met with laughter from the crowd, some wonder if it represents a deeper sentiment about removing God from any discussions about the future of the world. As Emily Manigiarcina explains in her article for LifeSite, God is a threat to WEF’s globalist agenda writing: In fact, God and authentic religion are a threat to the WEF’s agenda, not only because they …

Survey: Nearly 1 in 4 Dutch young people believe the Nazi holocaust never happened

According to a survey commissioned by The Conference on Jewish Material Claims against Germany, nearly one in four Dutch young people (Millennials and Gen Z) believe the German Holocaust is a myth, CBN reports. The survey also found that a significant number of Dutch people also think the number of Jewish deaths was exaggerated and believed less than 2 million Jews were killed during the Holocaust. The actual number was over 6 million. And even though, 70% of Dutch Jews (102,000 of 140,000) were hauled away and killed by the Nazis in their concentration camps, over half of Dutch of all ages do not believe Holland was affected by these events. The Nazi holocaust was one of the motivating forces behind the creation of the State of Israel in 1948, an event prophesied in the Bible. He will raise a signal for the nations and will assemble the banished of Israel, and gather the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.

Are satanists at it again?

For several years, the small community of Bramshaw, England has been inundated with satanic symbols, rituals and related vandalism. The latest involved the discovery of five animal hearts placed on top of a stone landmark at the site. It was surrounded by a large circle of candles in what appeared to have been part of a satanic ritual held at the site, the Daily Mail reports. The ceremony was performed in a popular area in a nearby park sometime around Jan 13, 2023. Public displays of the demonic rituals started showing up in 2019, when people found dead sheep lying on roads with pentagrams spray-painted on their corpses. In one instance, an upside-down cross was placed on a body. St. Peter’s Church was also vandalized with satanic symbols that same year. Then in December 2022, parishioners who were on their way to the church in preparations for Christmas, found a dead cat hanging from the flagpole. “I have no idea why it is happening in our area. If it is connected to witchcraft, then the …

US Energy Department report highlights huge cost of ending Keystone pipeline

One of the first things that President Joe Biden did when he took office in 2021 was to cancel the Keystone XL pipeline. According to a report by the US government’s Energy Department, that decision came at a great economic cost, Breitbart reports. The report entitled, Keystone XL Extension Permit Revocation: Energy Costs and Job Impacts, was released in December 2021. It stated that the decision cost between 16,149 to 59,468 jobs in the short term. The Keystone pipeline was expected to ship 830,000 barrels of Canadian crude oil to the US, and create 42,000 long-term jobs amounting to $2 billion in total wages. This was all squashed when President Biden recklessly revoked the permits of the project that was already halfway done, resulting in the stakeholders terminating the project.

Nancy Pelosi had Roman Catholic priests perform an exorcism at her home, daughter states

According to the daughter of former House speaker, Nancy Pelosi, her mother had Roman Catholic priests come into her home and perform an exorcism after Pelosi’s husband was seriously injured in an attack at their home on Oct 28, 2022, The Blaze reports. Nancy’s daughter, Alexandra Pelosi, made the admission in a recent interview with the New York Times, stating that the attack deeply impacted her mother. “I think that weighed really heavy on her soul. I think she felt really guilty. I think that really broke her,” Alexandra said in the interview. Nancy’s husband was severely injured in the attack after being hit with a hammer by an intruder in their home while police were standing only a few feet away. Roman Catholic exorcisms include blessings, prayers, and invocations found in an 84-page manual entitled Of Exorcisms and Certain Supplications. This can include such invocations as: Depart, then, transgressor. Depart, seducer, full of lies and cunning, foe of virtue, persecutor of the innocent. Give place, abominable creature, give way, you monster, give way to …

Elon Musk calls WEF, an ‘unelected world government’

If you are unaware, the World Economic Forum (WEF) is on the last day of its annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland. Many believe the organization funded and founded by Klaus Schwab is pushing for world domination. Elon Musk, Twitter’s new owner, recently condemned the WEF calling it an ‘unelected world government,” Fox News reports. “WEF is increasingly becoming an unelected world government that the people never asked for and don’t want,” Musk tweeted. The WEF’s annual meeting, held this year from January 16 to 20, attracts elites from areas of academia, politics, and business, and its founder Klaus Schwab has described the recent COVID pandemic as an opportunity for a great reset, and to make the world in Schwab’s image. That includes a program called Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG), and Musk later tweeted the S actually stands for Satanic.

After brutal media attacks, Provorov’s jersey sells out at NHL online store

There has been a subtle shift in culture where a person can no longer remain neutral on certain issues, but must actively support them, or risk being called some type of ‘phobe’. Ivan Provorov, a defenceman for the Philadelphia Flyers, recently found himself being lambasted by the woke media and on social media for not donning a pride-themed jersey during warm-up prior to a game against the Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday, Fox News reports The Russian-born player sat out the warm-up stating that he didn’t feel comfortable doing it, choosing instead to stand with his convictions and religious beliefs. In an interview after the game, Provorov told reporters: “I respect everybody and I respect everybody’s choices. My choice is to stay true to myself and my religion. That’s all I’m going to say.” Provorov, who attends the Russian Orthodox Church, wasn’t being critical, he just couldn’t support it. But it seems a person can no longer remain neutral on these issues but must be seen actively supporting them or face the wrath of the woke …

Rabbi Pesach Wolicki explains what Jehovah means

In an article for Israel365 News, Rabbi Pesach Wolicki had an interesting read on what the name of God, pronounced Jehovah (spelled YHVH) actually means. He starts off by turning to Exodus 6:2-3, when God revealed His name to Moses, explaining that His actual name was different from the name that the patriarch knew God as: God spoke to Moses, and He said to him: I am the Lord (YHVH). I appeared to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob as God Almighty (El Shaddai), but with My name “the Lord,” (YHVH) I did not make myself known to them. (Exodus 6:2-3) So what does YHVH actually mean? Wolicki explains that at its root, YHVH means “to exist.” But a closer examination of the various elements of this word provides a different picture. Wolicki writes: “The form or conjugation of this root that is the name YHVH is an impossible mix of past, present, and future tenses. We can see where God’s name YHVH comes from if we consider three words: #1 YEHYEH        Will be …

Mom meets the son she saved after changing her mind while lying on the abortion table

CBN recently had a story about Melissa Coles, who in 1993 changed her mind about having an abortion while laying on the table and eventually met her son, whose life she spared. Coles, 18, was poor and unmarried made the decision as the doctor’s hand touched her leg to start the procedure. She blurted out ‘I can’t do this’ and the doctor rolling his eyes stopped. Unaware of what to do next, she later found out that adoption was an option. The story exposes the oldest lie in the abortion handbook, that the child is unwanted. The baby may not be wanted by the mother, for a variety of reasons, but there are thousands of families desperate for a child. In Coles’ case, it ended up being a Christian woman, who had given birth to two children who later died because of their disabilities. Coles gave birth to a baby boy in December 1993, who was named David James. Eighteen years later, Cole had a chance to meet the son she had given up for …

Buffalo Bill QB, Josh Allen says ‘God is Real’ after Damar Hamlin’s collapse and recovery

After Buffalo Bill’s safety Damar Hamlin experienced a cardiac arrest during a game against the Cincinnati Bengals on Jan 2, Bill’s quarterback, Josh Allen says the incident sparked a spiritual awakening among some team players, The Blaze reports. In an appearance on an NFL Network podcast hosted by Kyle Brandt, Allen spoke of the spiritual spinoffs from Hamlin’s recovery. “I said this in my press conference the other day,” Allen said, “[There was] just kind of a spiritual awakening really for me and … for a lot of other people that maybe didn’t have the strongest belief or wasn’t one of the biggest, strongest Christian followers.” “I’ll be the first to admit, like, I haven’t been the most devoted Christ follower in my life,” Allen added. “I’ve had my different beliefs and thoughts and ideas and stuff like that, but something got a hold of me there, and it was extremely powerful that, you know, I couldn’t deny it.” “It’s been really cool to see how guys have been moved and touched by this whole …

Man allegedly ordered to leave Mall of America over ‘Jesus Saves’ message on his shirt

According to reports, a man wearing a shirt with a Christian message printed on the front and back was allegedly ordered by security to either remove his shirt or leave the Mall of America, Church Leaders.com reports. In a video posted on YouTube and other social media platforms, two security approached the man wearing a shirt that says “Jesus saves” on the front and “Jesus is the only way” on the back. Alleging that people were offended by the message, the guards told the man that he needed to either remove the shirt or leave the mall. “Jesus is associated with religion, and it’s offending people,” says a guard who appears to be from the Mall of America. The guard added that the shirt is ‘religious soliciting’ and this is not allowed in the mall. According to Church Leaders, the confrontation sparked some debate on social media, with some suggesting the man should have turned the other cheek and taken off the shirt, while others stated he needed to stand up for religious freedom.

Former drug addict states San Francisco’s syringe exchange program keeps people in bondage

A former drug addict recently stated that San Francisco’s syringe exchange program is doing nothing more than keeping addicts “in a state of bondage,” Fox News report. The city’s woke council has provided 20 locations across the city that distribute syringes, pipes and tinfoil to help users maintain their addiction. The program also provides naloxone, which helps reverse overdoses. The city’s goal is to provide a warm, safe place, without judgement, where people can safely continue living their life of addiction. Fox News interviewed, Ricci Wynne, a former addict and drug dealer, who broke free of his addiction and now promotes drug abstinence. “They should restart rethinking their policies here because this harm reduction site, it just doesn’t work,” Wynne said. “They need abstinence-based treatment, they need to get clean, they need help to get back on the road to recovery.” READ: San Francisco addicts are kept ‘in a state of bondage’ by syringe exchange programs, former drug user says

British satirist critiques woke culture and the climate cult

With the climate cult claiming governments must limit how much CO2 an individual person can emit annually, it was interesting to watch British comedian, Konstantin Kisin, critique woke culture and the climate fanaticism dominating society, the Daily Wire reports. Kisin, starts off his presentation to the Oxford Union, which has been viewed over 5.6 million times, with this indictment of wokeness: “I want to talk to those of you who are woke, and who are open to rational argument. A small minority, I accept, because one of the tenets of wokeness is of course that your feelings matter more than the truth.” And he continues by adding that since Britain only emits 2% of the world’s CO2, it doesn’t matter what their country does, it will change nothing. If you believe CO2 is destroying the world, the changes need to happen in Asia and Latin America from people who are just trying to survive and couldn’t care less about climate change. He finished off by saying: “The only thing that wokeness has to offer … …

Are offshore wind farms impacting whale populations?

There have been calls for a moratorium on further offshore windmill developments after a seventh dead whale in just over a month washed ashore near such a project off the coast of New Jersey, the Western Journal reports. The latest death involved a humpback whale that washed up on a Brigantine beach on Jan 12, 2023, just six days after a similar incident a few miles down the shore at Atlantic City. At this point, the cause of these deaths is unknown. Calling it alarming, Cindy Zipf, the director of Clean Ocean Action, said she had never seen six dead whales washing ashore in just 33 days. Many are calling for a moratorium on further offshore wind development until studies have determined if they are having a negative impact on whale populations.

Some bizarre laws from around the world

The Daily Mail recently had an article on some bizarre laws being enforced around the world. Here are a few of them: CAN’T FLUSH A TOILET AFTER 10 PM: Apparently, it’s illegal to flush a toilet in an apartment building in Switzerland after 10 pm, because it is considered noise pollution. Some landlords even impose restrictions on no flushing between 10 pm and 7 am. MUST WALK DOG: If you own a dog in Turin, Italy, you must walk them at least three times a day, according to a law passed by the city council. DON’T SHARE ALCOHOLIC DRINKS WITH MOOSE: In Fairbanks, Alaska it is illegal to feed alcohol to Moose. Apparently, a moose, who was later named Buzzwinkle, went on a rampage in 2007 after getting into some alcohol at a local brewer. DON’T RIDE COWS WHILE INTOXICATED: Based on legislation passed in 1872, it’s still illegal for an intoxicated person to ride a cow in Scotland. DON’T BUILD SAND CASTLES: It has been illegal since 2016, for anyone to build sandcastles on …

American Heart Association Journal: Study suggests mRNA vaccine ‘may contribute to Myocarditis’

The American Heart Association Journal recently published a study that suggests mRNA-vaccines may be contributing to heart issues among certain young adults and teens, CBN reports. The Journal cited 16 cases between January 2021-February 2022, where young adults and adolescents experienced Myocarditis after receiving a COVID vaccine. A rare condition, Myocarditis involves a weakening of the heart muscles that can result in chest pain, shortness of breath, fatigue and swelling of the lower limbs. The study is uncertain why the mRNA vaccines would contribute to this problem. It falls in line with research conducted by Florida’s Department of Health which revealed there has been an 84% increase in cardiac events among 18-39 year old males, that may be associated with the vaccines.

Prayer makes the difference

On the heels of Buffalo Bills receiver, Damar Hamlin, nearly dying during a game with the Cincinnati Bengals, former NFL running back, Peyton Hillis, 36, was also on his deathbed after saving his children from drowning on a Florida beach. He was airlifted to a nearby hospital in critical condition but is now on the road to recovery. In an Instagram Post, Hamlin’s girlfriend, Angela Cole asked for people to continue praying for Hamlin because he still has a long way to go, The Blaze reports. Cole continued that prayer, “truly makes all the difference.” But she wasn’t the only one to credit, prayer for making a difference, so did Former NFL quarterback Robert Griffin III. “There is POWER in prayer!” Griffin tweeted. “Peyton Hillis is off the ventilator and doing much better in his recovery. Awesome job by the medical professionals caring for him.” And of course, we know of the prayers that went up Hamlin after he collapsed to the ground after tackling a Bengal receiver, requiring CPR to restart his heart.

CNN hits record viewership lows

According to data published by Adweek, the average number of people watching CNN on Jan 10, 2023, was just 520,000, with only 120,000 of them in the key demographic, 25 to 54, coveted by advertisers, the Daily Caller reports. These are reportedly the lowest viewership numbers in CNN’s history. This could potentially lead to yet another round of layoffs at the beleaguered network which over the years has been accused of being little more than a shill for the Democrat Party.

Is the left loving the homeless to death? The homeless think so.

An interesting interview of a homeless woman by KATU TV in Portland, Oregon revealed the failure of the left-wing politicos when it comes to dealing with homelessness, The Blaze reports. When asked what it is like being homeless in Portland, the woman who went by the name of Wendy, said it is a piece of cake: “I mean, that’s why you probably got so many out here because they feed you three meals a day, You don’t have to do s*** but stay in your tent or party. Or, if you smoke a lot of dope, you can do that.” Then Wendy added, “They are loving us to death.” Kevin Dahlgren, who works with a homeless outreach called, We Heart Portland, explained what she meant: “Not just Wendy, but multiple homeless have said that the system is ‘loving us to death. They hate the idea that they’re being enabled. They may not say no to it, but they still don’t like it. What they want is to be empowered. They want responsibility. They want accountability.“ …

Uranium, possibly intended for a dirty bomb, was seized at Britain’s Heathrow Airport

The seizure of a package of Uranium at Heathrow Airport in London, England is raising alarms over fears it was intended for a dirty bomb, the Daily Mail reports. The package containing several kilos of Uranium was shipped from Pakistan to UK-based Iranians and arrived in Britain, on Dec 29, 2022 via Oman Air. Though it was not weapons-grade Uranium and could not be used for a nuclear weapon, it could be combined with a conventional bomb to spread nuclear contamination. According to reports, a major search has been launched for the individuals who were supposed to receive the shipment. If this proves to be the case, this would not be the first time there have been threats of a dirty bomb attack in that country.

Former Pussycat Dolls pop star, Kaya Jones, shares her journey to forgiveness

In an interview with Christine Yeargin, as part of Students for Life podcasts, former Pussycat Dolls pop star, Kaya Jones, 38, shared her journey to Christ that included leaving the popular girl’s group in 2004, CBN reports. At times, Jones felt like a prostitute, as a member of the popular girl band, because she had sold herself to a dream and popularity. She felt manipulated, controlled and at times as little more than an ‘owned commodity.’ Her journey included three abortions. The first took place when she was 16 and the second as a member of the band, when she was told to get an abortion. The third happened after she was raped at the age of 30. But it was a moment during one of her concerts that really spoke to her. Jones, who was in the process of having the second abortion, saw two young girls in the audience. “When you are doing things that are really incorrect and your body is up for grabs, this is where we have to take a …

Will the Biden administration be targeting Christian universities and colleges?

Bob Eitel, president of the Defense of Freedom Institute and a former senior counselor to the secretary of Education, is warning the Biden administration may soon be targeting Christian universities and colleges, the Washington Examiner reports. Eitel raised this concern after the Biden administration announced plans to revisit regulations that impact accreditation and student loans for schools of higher learning. In 2020 then President Donald Trump instituted several changes that allowed Christian schools to function freely according to their faith. This prevented regulators from forcing religious institutions to compromise their values on non-academic issues such as abortion to maintain their eligibility for accreditation and student loan eligibility. “That the Biden Education Department would take it upon themselves to undo that consensus doesn’t make any sense,” Eitel said in his interview with the Washington Examiner. “[And] given some of the anti-faith postures taken by the department in the Biden administration on issues of religion and faith and culture, anybody who attends a faith-based institution should be very concerned about what the department might do.” In an …

Will we all soon be needing a horse and cart?

If I understand the global warming cult correctly, we need to go electric in order to save the planet. If we do that, then according to their propaganda, the world will start cooling off.

Seattle school district sues Big Tech over mental health crisis

In an interesting move, a US public school district in Seattle, Washington is suing several social media giants alleging they are causing mental distress, anxiety, and depression among children, Breitbart reports. Included in the list of those being sued are the Chinese-owned TikTok, Facebook and Instagram which are owned by Meta, and also Snapchat, YouTube and Google. In a statement explaining its action, the school board said that it wants to hold “‘social media companies accountable for the harm they have wreaked on the social, emotional, and mental health’ of students.” “The increase in suicides, attempted suicides, and mental-health related emergency room visits is no coincidence,” the statement added. The statement also alleged that Big Tech has manipulated, “the psychology and neurophysiology of their users so that they spend more and more time on their platforms…creating a mental health crisis among young Americans.” READ: Big Tech sued by Seattle schools over mental health ‘crisis’ RELATED: Study: Social Media Causes Children to ‘Dislike Their Own Bodies’ AND Facebook Knows Instagram Is Toxic for Teen Girls, Company …

Canada: Two in critical condition after allegedly being shot by a man out on bail

Similar to what is happening in the US, alleged felons, who have been released on bail, go out and commit new crimes, including murder. In this incident reported by the Toronto Sun, the alleged attacker was out on bail for gun charges: Not even 24 hours after burying OPP Const. Greg Pierzchala, who was allegedly shot by a man who had skipped bail on gun charges, a major crime incident occurred in London on Thursday that saw a man in a retail store shot in the chest and his female co-worker hit in the head with a blunt object that sources say was a hammer.

While secular universities and colleges report declines, enrollment increases at Christian schools

While universities and colleges across America as reporting declines in attendance, the same can’t be said for Christian schools of higher education, the Daily Caller reports. The National Student Clearinghouse Research Center reports that since 2020, the number of students attending universities and colleges across the US has declined 4.2%. While it is easy to blame COVID for the decreased enrollment, there was also a 1.1% decline in the fall of 2022, when the pandemic was largely over. Meanwhile, over the same period of time, many Christian colleges and universities were reporting increases: So while it is easy to blame COVID for the reduced enrollment in secular schools, if it was solely to blame, then the Christian schools should have seen declines as well, but they didn’t. This tells us that other issues are also contributing to the declining attendance in secular schools.

Major empathy study concludes women are different from men

A major international study involving 300,000 participants has concluded that there are differences between men and women, the Christian Post reports. The study first reported in Fortune concluded that despite differences in ethnicity, nationality, language and age, women were on average more empathetic than men. “Our results provide some of the first evidence that the well-known phenomenon — that females are on average more empathic than males — is present in a wide range of countries across the globe” said David Greenberg, the study’s lead author from Israel’s IBar-Ilan University. “It’s only by using very large data sets that we can say this with confidence,” Greenberg added. The study further concluded that the difference is due in part to genetic variations between men and women: “On average, more men than women have a Type S brain type and more women than men have a Type E brain type. It is suggested that these brain types are caused by genetic and prenatal hormonal levels (2,3), as well as by environmental factors.” Coming to such conclusions in …

Famed Toronto psychologist, Dr. Jordan Peterson, called in for re-education

I briefly touched on this earlier, but I think it deserves its own post. Toronto psychologist, Dr. Jordan Peterson, has been called in for re-education training by the College of Psychologists of Ontario. If the famed conservative commentator fails to submit to re-education, the college is threatening to pull his license. His crime: Should Dr. Peterson refuse: One person tweeted this interesting comparison: But, I presume Dr. Peterson’s re-education training will not include sleep and food deprivation, blaring heavy rock music 24/7, interrogation and bright lights popularized historical re-education programs. Dr. Peterson added that he would agree to it as long as there is full disclosure of the event. READ: Renowned Psychologist Jordan Peterson Ordered to Submit to Woke Retraining or Lose License

Peter Hitchens: Calls for a return of facemasks are about fear and control

We are already hearing wails for a return of facemasks and mandatory vaccinations, especially in light of the chaos out of China where its failed zero-covid lockdowns actually made things worse, not better, by preventing people from catching COVID and building up a natural immunity. Peter Hitchens, a columnist for the Daily Mail, recently responded to an editorial in The [London] Times, entitled ‘Wear a Mask, where the newspaper called for people to start wearing facemasks. “It is none of my business, and none of the Government’s business,” Hitchens writes. “What other people wear, on their faces or anywhere else (except for the needs of personal modesty).” “In return, I ask only that you do me the same favour, and do not urge me, let alone try to compel me, to don a garment which I think silly, pointless and politicised.” Hitchens believes this call for a return to facemasks is ultimately about fear and control. But he didn’t stop with just that, Hitchens then pointed to the mountain of evidence that showed that facemasks …

We can’t find aliens, because they all killed themselves off, study suggests

Maybe it is a sign of desperation. But researchers have come up with a new theory on why we have been unable to find any signs of alien life in our vast universe, it is because these great advanced alien civilizations have killed themselves off. “Why aren’t they sending telescope satellites through our part of space?” Caroline Delbert writes in her article for Popular Mechanics. “And how can it be that out of all the planets and systems we’ve peeked into so far, we’ve seen nothing? She then cites a study by three researchers from Caltech and a high school student who concluded that we aren’t finding aliens, because these ancient civilizations have wiped themselves out. “They could even be extinct,” Delbert explains. “In fact, the research includes parameters for extinction and the idea of “self annihilation,” a probability that could be extraordinarily high.” When you remove God from the equation for the development of life on earth, and believe it happened through natural evolution, you have to conclude that it could easily happen anywhere. …

For the fourth year in a row, abortion is the world’s leading cause of death

According to Worldometer, a website that tracks a variety of statistics in real time, for the fourth year in a row, abortion is the leading cause of death in the world, the Christian Post (CP) reports. According to Worldometer, there were over 44 million abortions in 2022. Coming in second was communicable diseases which resulted in 13 million deaths, cancer which caused 8 million deaths, smoking which was blamed for 5 million, alcohol which resulted in 2.5 million deaths and AIDS which is blamed for 2 million deaths. Though deaths due to COVID were included in the communicable disease category, on its own it only accounted for 1.2 million deaths in 2022. It barely beat out deaths from automobile accidents at over just one million and one million deaths due to suicide. But CP noted that there is some disagreement on the total number of abortions performed in 2022. The World Health Organization (WHO), which ironically considers abortion an essential health service, puts the number at closer to 73 million. READ: Abortion is leading cause …
