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.

And yes, those states are both within driving distance of NY.
More up-to-date stats are available from the CDC, in their annual "Abortion Surveillance Report", current through 2002:
The liberals are aborting themselves out of power and don't even realize it.
In some areas of NYC, the number of live births is exceeded by the number of aborted babies. NYC is the abortion capitol of America.
That is exactly what many politicians are thinking. Right now there are probably 8 million illigal immigrants working in the US. Let's assume that 3/4 are providing some sort of ID with a SSN on it. Let's also assume tha tthey are making $12,000 and paying SS on it and their employers ae matching it.
6,000,000 X $12,000 X 14% = $10.8 BILLION that is put into the SS with no earmarks.
My daughters, 7 and 10, know what abortion is, although I can tell that they can't comprehend how any woman would deliberately kill her own baby. I also told them recently that, "it's even worse. Every other adult you meet believes that abortion should be legal." They just stared at me incredulously. I said, "people aren't as nice as they may appear to be."
Please tell me this figure is wrong.
Hey you are being intolerant when you suggest that the "natives" in the New World didn't live in the most peaceful of Utopia's!
We all know they had no problems, an abundance of food, and a just society, living in complete harmony with nature and beast.
Yes, God Almighty.
Remind me to never again go to New York.
I recall a time that, even without a slight degree of parental supervision and/or morality involved, most females who were not intentionally engaged in having a family avoided having sex with any male because they did not want to get pregnant.
Women used to avoid sex as long as possible to avoid becoming pregnant, is my point. Even aside from religious convictions and/or any other moral motivation, the key thing was that people exercised a greater degree of sexual controls prior to the availability of "abortion on demand," AND, also, most males would, too, to avoid the responsibilities. Those that didn't were undesirable by most girls and were known to be predators, irresponsible, not who you'd want to marry.
People can avoid unwanted pregnancies by avoiding consequential sexual intercourse. What we have today is a whole few generations who never learned about consequences, unfortunately, unaware that they're living on after their "abortions" as murderers, and yet not without penalty to come.
"And, remember that to many abortion is a religion, almost a sacrament (blood sacrifice?) to their "god" of international socialism/anti-Christian/anti-capitalist world order!"
Remember Baal worship, with the fire in the belly of the golden calf?
Why do you suggest this is a case of "red states" versus New York, "blue states."
You're missing the actual facts, additionally, of the story itself. Two percent of abortions being conducted on those from "out of state" could refer to people from Brazil, Tijera Del Fuego, London or wherever.
I understand that. I am probably anticipating a trend, based on history. I remember pre-1973 very well. Do you?
Yes, and illegal immigration has increased by even greater percentages. New York is among the most popular of destinations for immigrants of both the legal and the illegal kind.
Why do you ask?
And what "trend" is that?
Abortions anywhere, including in New York and your fancied "blue states" otherwise were as illegal pre-1973 as they were in "red states."
Are you a feminist? A Democrat?
Any idea how many poor Mississippi women travelled up to New York City for an abortion?
I wonder where Mississippi women who want abortions go to get them. And I wonder what woman would travel to NYC for an abortion. What states near NYC have restrictive abortion policies? Are abortion-promoters sending women to NYC?
