40 Facts That Prove That America’s Moral Collapse Is Spinning Wildly Out Of Control by Michael Snyder for The Economic Collapse Blog
According to a brand new survey that was just conducted by the Pew Research Center, 77 percent of all Americans are either “very worried” or “fairly worried” about America’s moral health. Of course the truth is that we should all be deeply concerned, because we can see evidence of the cancerous moral decay that is eating away at the foundations of our society all around us. In life, each one of us gets to make choices, and some of those choices can lead to very bad outcomes. We all have old friends that “got on the wrong path”, and their lives ended up becoming cautionary tales. Well, the same principle applies to nations as a whole. America has been given very clear choices between good and evil, life and death, blessings and curses over and over again, and we have consistently made the wrong choices. If we stay on this road, there is only one result that will be possible.
As long as we are drawing breath, there is always an opportunity to turn things around. That is true for individuals, and it is also true for our entire nation. But if we continue running toward evil, it is only a matter of time before exceedingly painful consequences overtake us.
The following are 40 facts that prove that America’s moral collapse is spinning wildly out of control…
#1 America has killed more than 60 million children since Roe v. Wade was decided in 1973. The federal government endorses this activity by heavily funding the country’s leading abortion provider, and after that abortion provider harvests the organs of the dead children, the federal government also heavily funds the research that is conducted on those harvested organs.
#2 According to a Quinnipiac University poll from last year, 63 percent of all Americans want to keep Roe v. Wade in place.
#3 America is a global leader in sexual depravity. If you doubt this, just check out what is going on in Cleveland at the end of this month.
#4 Americans are now more likely to die from an opioid overdose than they are from a car accident.
#5 In the city of Baltimore, approximately one out of every four babies is born as an opioid addict.
#6 Overdosing on drugs has now become the leading cause of death for Americans under the age of 50.
