This is heartening news! According to Ministry of Health (MOH) figures released to The Straits Times, the number abortions have been in the decline since Year 2009 and was at its lowest level last year in 30 years.
According to MOH, there were 8,515 abortions last year, about 8% fewer than in 2013.

Even though the number of abortions has tipped significantly since its peak in Year 2009, every child lost in an abortion is one too many.
Abortion is wrong, based on the principles of the bible.
In particular, abortion involves the shedding of innocent blood.
There are six things the Lord hates, seven that are detestable to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, a false witness who pours out lies and a person who stirs up conflict in the community. (Proverbs 6:16-19, NIV, emphasis mine)
‘Cursed is anyone who accepts payment to kill an innocent person.’ And all the people will reply, ‘Amen.’ (Deuteronomy 27:25; NLT)
An educational film on the subject of abortion, called ‘The Silent Scream‘ was released in 1984, and you may wish to watch it in the Youtube channel below:
