AFA initiatives, Christian activism, news briefs

March 2019 – A recent Breitbart article by Thomas D. Williams, Ph.D., reported that abortion was the number one cause of death around the globe in 2018. A theologian, author, and renowned lecturer, Williams teaches ethics at University of St. Thomas in Rome and was 2018 visiting research scholar at Notre Dame University.

According to a Worldometers clock, Williams wrote that abortion killed 41.9 million babies in 2018 — more than cancer, HIV/AIDS, smoking, alcohol, malaria, and traffic accidents combined.
