For every 100 babies born in New York City, women had 74 abortions in 2004, according to newly released figures that reaffirm the city as the abortion capital of the country. And abortions for out-of-town women performed in the city increased from 57 to 70 out of every 1,000 between 1996 and 2004, a subtle yet noticeable trend that experts say may reflect growing hurdles against the procedure in more conservative parts of the country.
The new Vital Statistics report released by the city Department of Health this month shows there were 124,100 live births, 11,700 spontaneous abortions and 91,700 induced abortions in the city in 2004. That means 40 out of 100 pregnancies in the city ended in a planned abortion - almost double the national average of 24 of 100 pregnancies in 2002, estimated by the Alan Guttmacher Institute, a Manhattan-based nonprofit group that researches reproductive health issues.

Chh. We're too much like "pre-flood earth" for our own good. Read Genesis 6:5-7. Sounds unsettlingly like America.
I assure you this: earth doesn't have much longer. A few months ago, I had gone out late at night with a group of coworkers/friends. We were sitting outside in a little circle, and somehow, the conversation shifted to abortion.
I was the only one in that circle of about 8 that was pro-life. Everyone else insisted 'woman's rights' and 'not a baby'. If the child was a rape baby, if the child had a handicap or medical problems, they said it was perfectly ok to get an abortion.
I was horrified. I told a story about a young woman who survived an abortion, how she was alive and well and a grown human being. One of the girls in the group was actually *shocked* to hear of a child surviving an abortion. She told me, "I didn't know abortions could be survived."
On the drive back, I sat in the backseat of a friend's car, and I started to cry. My heart was breaking. I went straight to the phone, called up my mom and asked if we could pray.
It was the first time I had ever felt the kind of sorrow we put God through every second of every day. I felt shattered, like there was no hope.
I realized fully for the first time, just how little time we have left. And I do mean, 'little'. We're going to be judged - soon. At that time, I felt like we didn't even have *days* left; and we don't. Any day now, I swear it. Any day now...
Thanks for the etiquette tip; I'm still learning the ropes around here. I don't disagree with the positive part about life, at all; I would just hope that the first experience would have also taught a positive lesson about commitment or contraception. :)
Well, that's nice. They can get in some shopping and see a play in NYC while they dispose of the defenseless child.
I agree with you. A small 'remnant' does, as well.
I saw that you were new:).Welcome to FR.
To resolve an argument with a relative, I called an abortion clinic here in Minnesota pretending to want an abortion, and they referred me to NY since the (non-existent) baby was over 24 weeks of age.
That used to be the reason given for going, sometimes, so it's not hard to imagine it would be again. Unless you can figure out a constitutional way to ban interstate travel... :[
Thank you. :)
Once again, you flak for the feminazis...
Feminazis? Time to reline that tinfoil helmet. ;)
Yeah but then they found out the money that was to be had in sucking innocent lives down a vacuum hose and dumping them in the trash.
What are you talking about? There is nothing narcissistic about my post.
True, but at least mistakes weren't compounded with deadly decisions.
BTW, The second time she got pregnant we did use contraception.
2. White folk in red states have higher birthrates than white folk in blue states. Religious white folk tend to have considerably less abortions than the non-religious of any race.
Get a friggin clue lady! Abortion would STILL be legal if Roe V. Wade were overturned. These ladies who didn't cross their legs nor use contraception could easily travel to states like New York, Massholechusetts, and California where the practice would remain legal by state law.
As someone else on another thread said,
"For Every Liberal that gets an abortion, Conservatives gain an advantage of ONE..."
