International Women’s Day is meant to celebrate the achievements of women everywhere, but that hasn’t stopped hundreds of thousands of unborn baby girls from being aborted around the globe.
“This is how many girls were killed between 2000-2014 by sex-selective abortion,” Live Action President Lila Rose tweeted Thursday, pointing to the shocking number of girls aborted globally.
India has aborted 12,771,043 girls between 2000 and 2014 and currently has 37 million more men than women. China has aborted 9,615,875 girls — its men outnumber women by 33 million. Pakistan aborted 1,280,228 girls, while Vietnam aborted 555,002 girls between 2000 and 2014. Azerbaijan has also aborted 105,418 unborn female babies in this time period.
“We cannot advance women’s rights if we kill our littlest women in the womb. Sex-selective abortion is a scourge against women worldwide, and the most blatant and deadly form of discrimination,” Rose also tweeted.

The last 20 years have also seen a rise in the ratio of men to women in the U.S. and the United Kingdom, according to Live Action’s video.
Planned Parenthood has aborted 7,132,130 babies in the U.S. since Margaret Sanger’s founding of Planned Parenthood. The organization’s doctors aborted more than 328,348 unborn babies in 2016 and killed 6,803,782 unborn babies between 1978 and 2016, according to CNS News.
