Secular Humanists have deliberately killed an average of 10,000 or more people per day during the 20th century. Nearly half a billion people have been murdered by non-Christian governments in this century. This number does not count the number of people who aren't allowed to see their first birthday. In America 4,000 pre-born people are killed every day, with possibly double that number in China and the "former" Soviet Union — each. Adding these murders, and the total approaches 10,000 murders per hour.
But because Americans are so "heavenly-minded they are of no earthly good," Secular Humanists have decided to up the ante. They now are discussing possibilities for eliminating an additional fifteen thousand people per hour.
Here are the details from The New American magazine :
Cousteau the "Humanitarian"
Item: In its front-page article on the passing of famed French oceanographer Jacques Cousteau, the June 26th  New York Times stated that the "outspoken Mr. Cousteau was often at odds with other leaders of the environment movement. He not only lent a sympathetic ear to technological fixes for pollution problems, but he also refused to put the interests of animals above those of people. 'I'm not an ecologist for the animals,' he often said, 'I'm an ecologist for the people.'"
Correction: Cousteau put the interests of people so high that he concluded many needed to be eliminated so that others could survive. In an interview appearing in the November 1991 UNESCO Courier, Cousteau bared his humanitarianism and his anxiety toward certain "technological fixes":
Cousteau, you see, viewed overpopulation as the greatest problem facing humanity. But even the fates of those fortunate enough to continue living on our crowded planet would be shaped by coercive utopians like Cousteau. In the 1980s, in order to prevent nuclear war, Cousteau proposed "the compulsory exchange of children at a relatively low age, 7 to 8 or 8 to 9" to live for one year in the enemy country. "I don't see how a nation could press the button . . . when they know that 3 million of their children are over there. I mean, the mothers would not tolerate that," he reasoned to the June 13, 1985 Los Angeles Times. What could be more humanitarian than that?

When the United Nations and other Secular Humanist organizations decide who will live and who has "the right to die," will you be the one whose "rights" are "protected?"

Another human hater: Finland's Pentti Linkola
"By sacrificing perhaps billions [we] might possibly save a million," he remarks.
As one who believes another world war would be a "happy occasion for the planet," Linkola likens the current global situation to a sinking ship with only one remaining lifeboat. "Those who hate life will try to load it with more people and sink the lot." while "those who love and respect life will take the ship’s ax and sever the extra hands that cling to the sides of the boat," he declares.
To chop the metaphorical hands from the gunwales, this outspoken opponent of Amnesty International and the Vatican advises an end to third-world aid, the introduction of mandatory abortions, and the creation of a totalitarian state with strict environmental laws enforced by a ruthless "green police."
The Voluntary Human Extinction Movement
"May we live long and die out," is the rallying cry for this Oregon-based environmental faction dedicated to bringing the human experiment to an abrupt halt. However, unlike Linkola, these "deep" ecologists suggest non-coercive means to eliminate our toxic presence from the planet.

A survey of several important recent books
According to the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), 50 million abortions are performed around the world every year. That's an average of 136,986.3 abortions every single day. That's 5707.7 pre-born children killed per hour, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
