DESCRIPTION: The Abortion Worldwide Report (AWR) [Informe Mundial del Aborto (IMA)] first focuses on foundational truths necessary to restore the sanctity of human life in theology, medicine, human rights, civil government and law. Then the core of the report contains the most comprehensive compilation of the history and policies of 196 nations from 1803 to 2016, and systematically tracks more than 1 billion abortions in 100 nations and territories from 1921 through 2015. The integrity of the data collection and sources are described, as well as the logical methods for estimating missing years of abortion data. From actual policies and data, the authors developed 35 major findings, created 130 analysis and national abortion graphs, 15 regional and world policy maps, 67 lists and tables, and ranking of nations by cumulative abortions. After tabulating the greatest genocide in history, the authors examine from Scripture how God views innocent bloodshed, holds individuals and nations accountable, and offers forgiveness of sins and restoration to those who genuinely repent. Then words of truth and hope are given for women, men, families, churches, healthcare professionals, and those serving in civil government, including addressing matters of conscience. Finally, the report concludes with a summary of the major findings and selected recommendations, followed by national abortion graphs, the 454 data source list, a country index, and a general index. The AWR is the most comprehensive report every published on abortion worldwide. It is the culmination of 35 years of research.
