    In New York City, 41% of pregnancies aborted

    In New York City, 41% of Pregnancies Aborted - Among minorities, rate is even higher

    A whopping 41% of pregnancies in New York City ended in abortion in 2009, and that rate was even higher among some minorities, according to new data released by the health department. Non-Hispanic blacks, for example, had a 59.8% abortion rate, while Hispanics had a rate of 41.3%. Asians and non-Hispanic whites, meanwhile, had lower rates of 22.7% and 20.4%, respectively.
    No wonder the libbos are trying so hard to give amnesty to illegals. They're killing off all their future voters!

    Wow, 60 percent of black women's pregnancies are aborted in New York? That seems unfathomable.

    And the story says this was an improvement from the previous year? What in the hell is going on up there, other than a ton of casual schtooping.

    Can you imagine the cost if this was covered by government-run healthcare?

    Several reactions:

    1. That statistic is astounding and disheartening. 41% is a sickening rate of abortion, and shows just how messed up our society has become.

    2. What makes you think those babies would grow up to be Democrats? Doesn't NY have a Republican mayor?

    3. What makes you think that most of those abortions weren't paid for by the government in one way or another?

    4. Just from a purely economic standpoint, an abortion is cheaper than a delivery, isn't it?

    If they're killing off their future voters, why are you pissed off? Shouldnt you be jumping for joy?

    Thats one sick way of looking at it. Personally I would encourage giving up said child up for adoption. Abortion should only be legal in cases of rape and related crimes.

    I agree, actually, but had to answer Erod's worry about how much all this would cost if it were paid for by public health care.

    I could have said that national health care, if it ever does pass here, most likely won't include abortion.

    That umber is so astouding that I have a hard time believing it is true.

    2. What makes you think those babies would grow up to be Democrats? Doesn't NY have a Republican mayor?
    That's an assumption and no. Bloomberg is an Independent now.

    3. What makes you think that most of those abortions weren't paid for by the government in one way or another?
    I don't think NY, or any state, pays for abortions.

    4. Just from a purely economic standpoint, an abortion is cheaper than a delivery, isn't it?
    I would have to say that probably depends.

    And I just looked up the abortion rate in NYC....43% according to this website: http://www.abort73.com/abortion_fact...on_statistics/ That is just incredibly sad.

    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    Pro lifers don't rejoice over any abortion.

    The very idea of a world ankle biter deep in New Yorkers is too horrid to contemplate.

    Michael Bloomberg is no republican. He's an independent.

    The part you left out:

    The crazy part? Those numbers are actually an improvement. Twelve years ago, the city that never sleeps aborted 46% of its pregnancies, according to ABC. Still, no one’s really celebrating. “It is downright chilling,” the archbishop of New York told reporters, reiterating the Catholic Church's pro-abstinence stance. "There’s candy bowls on people's desks with condoms, they're dropping them from airplanes, yet nothing seems to improve, so they've been on the wrong track here." Planned Parenthood also bemoaned the figures, but said it only underscored the need for more comprehensive sex education.
    I agree 100% with Planned Parenthood, much more education is needed. It's criminal that they are not getting it.
