    It should say so on cigarette packages immediately.

    "Cigarette smoking is responsible for more than 480,000 deaths per year in the United States, including more than 41,000 deaths resulting from secondhand smoke
    exposure. This is about one in five deaths annually, or 1,300 deaths every day."

    But the COVID numbers are only so low because of the social distancing, and because of the personal protective equipment (I guess that mainly means masks),
    and because of the shut downs and temperance of commerce. Making people panic and
    take precautions is a good thing, but the economy is all important, and preeminent. If cigarette marketing, (and sale location), were tempered even more,
    there would be even LESS smoking deaths. But if people didn't know the dangers of
    smoking, there would be even MORE smoking deaths.


    But we should really get those 100% free first trimester early abortions going,
    cause saving all these lives is going to hurt/cost.

    Any sane civilization begins with population *planning*, (not control, but planning) (and sanitation).

    Let us pay $1,000 Federal dollars, to any doctor who performs an early term abortion, so that any woman can just walk in and get an abortion for free, no other insurance needed. There are 2.5 million unplanned pregnancies per year (not
    counting nearly 1 million miscarriages more), and $1,000 x 2.5 Million = $2.5 Billion per year.

    There are 1.5 million unplanned children, born every year in America. That is 15
    million people per decade, and 60 million people, in 40 years. In the 13 years of
    K-12, that is 19.5 million people x $12,000 per pupil for K-12 = $234,000,000,000
    per year. In 5 years, that's over $1 Trillion extra spent. In a decade, $2 Trillion, in 5 decades, $10 Trillion dollars. On K-12 alone.

    It's far cheaper to abort.

    90% of all abortions take place in the first three months, presently, anyway.

    There's no brain nor ghost in the fetus in the first three months. You didn't come out of a zygote. If one sperm and one egg are in a petri dish, are they a
    human, BEFORE the sperm fertilizes the egg? Do you think that's a "you" the moment AFTER it fertilizes? There are ghosts. There is reincarnation. There is
    God. For, "This is the message which we have heard from Him, and declare to you,
    that God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all." 1 John 1:5

    So where does God fit in with the zygote; or are you materialists?
