Human News

About 10 million female fetuses were aborted in India over 20 years. If you say the life of an aborted fetus is equivalent to, for example, 3% of the life of a child or adult, then the abortions were equivalent to 300,000 lives x 60 years/life = 18 million life-years.

Human News aims to devote 1 character to each 40,000 life-years, or 1000 average lives. Thus, this story can have (18 million) / 40,000 = about 450 characters.

Comparing the space devoted to articles in Human News and on the front page of the standard newspaper, this article occupies 23% of Human News and 14% of the standard newspaper.
