Do the Math – A Look at Generational Effects of Abortion

Jenn Giroux wrote a reflection on the generational effects of  ‘just one abortion’:

“We do not often think about the generational effect of ‘just one abortion’. The taking of one single life wipes out the countless souls who would have followed in all generations to come.

Look at your own Father and do the math.”

So, looking at my own ancestry, I did the math.

My Paternal Grandfather: 1

His Children :  2

His GrandChildren: 11

His Great-Grandchildren: 14

His Great-Great Grandchildren to date: 9

Total lives lost to date if my Grandfather had been aborted: 37

___

How many would the effect be in your family?
