The Christian Action Network (CAN) estimates that well over 1.8 million babies have been killed by legal abortions in South Africa since 1997 with the actual number of legal abortions higher than the official amount due to outstanding statistics from some provinces in previous years and a possible failure of some hospital officials to accurately record abortions in state hospitals.

The war against the pre-born is compounded by illegal abortionists who encourage vulnerable young women in every town and city to use abortion as a contraceptive, says CAN. It urges everyone to scrape off illegal abortion posters whenever possible.
