Skip to comments.New York City: More Blacks Aborted than Born
Posted on 07/10/2010 1:01:59 PM PDT by nhungerford
Racist eugenicist and Planned Parenthood Founder Margaret Sanger would be so proud:
"According to the city Health Department, 2008 saw 89,469 abortions performed in New York City seven for every 10 live births. Among black women, abortions out number live births by three to two."
These statistics from New York City more closely resemble the abortion mill culture of post-communist countries like China and Russia (who have historically devalued the worth of individual human life in favor of the collective good), than the old Clintonian mantra, safe, legal and rare.
I realize that many people, liberal and otherwise, are proponents of abortion choice, but the situation in New York City raises important ethical questions on the consequences of this perspective: Even if one is in favor of legalized abortion, does such a person want to live in a society in which more people are aborted than born? My guess is that most people do not. Secondly, if the answer is indeed no, how do we avoid this situation? A system which merely offers abortion as an alternative cannot discriminate between what pro-choice people deem as acceptable reasons for abortion and say, a woman who wants to use it as birth control. You have to allow them all.

Obozo and Shabazz very sad, Bush’s fault.
Someone "in favor of legalized abortion" will not ask that question or think about the answer. That person is of the dead, and no longer figures in the culture's future.
Very true. The Guttmacher Institute put out a report which stated that 75% of those who had abortions were aware of, and had access to, contraceptives, but didn’t bother to use them.
Remember it’s about Obama’s “pay grade” to comment on that.
Yes, BLACKS lead the charge with abortions!
I don’t see the problem here...?
Were you aware of these statistics?
Deaths in America per year
1,400,000 people die from abortion
650,000 people die of heart disease
560,000 people die of cancer
143,000 people die of stroke
75,000 people die of diabetes
18,000 - Deaths by death penalty in American history (all the way back to the 1600s).
1,315,000 - Deaths in all American wars combined.
50,000,000 - Deaths by abortion since Roe v Wade
Pray for an end to abortion in the United States of America.
- - - and this is supported by the racist party, spelled D-E-M-O-C-R-A-T!
Let me say it again: “The RACIST Democrat Party of America!”
“According to the city Health Department, 2008 saw 89,469 abortions performed in New York City seven for every 10 live births. Among black women, abortions out number live births by three to two.”
Holy Cow!!! A nearly 1 for 1 ratio of abortions to births in total but when broken down by race it is 3 deaths for every 2 births?
Blacks are killing themselves!
That is just terrible.
I’m using that for my tag.
Yes, and they vote for their own genocide.
Keep voting Democrat black folks, they are killing you off slow but sure, and bringing in Mexicans to replace you, and making you think they are doing you a favor.
Classic textbook example of cognitive dissonance
“Planned Parenthood... killing more blacks than the Ku Klux Klan could have ever dreamed of.”
That would make a great tag line!
Only if some group mounts a nationwide informational campaign to drill this data into the heads of black voters.
It's going to take a lot of awareness raising for blacks to begin voting for pro-life candidates.

Politics provides the machinery to kill, or the constraints to avoid infanticide - it cannot, however, supplant the moral vacancy of those directly involved in the act of abortion.
The most distressing aspect of this is the epidemic lack of respect for life. Politicians reflect this, they don’t directly effect it. Citizens can be trained to behave according to laws established by politicians, but the collective will of the constituents should correct the immoral laws - that will for Life is scarce.
The saddest of all is back before the dubious ‘Great Society’ blacks had a higher marriage rate and lower out of wedlock birthrate than whites.
IMO, it was because the black community was able to use shame to help make fellow community members responsible. A man that knocked up a woman and didn’t do right by her was looked down upon.
Shame is a useful thing. Too bad many people have none and are never reminded that they should be ashamed of themselves.
I’ve been using that specific term when posting on news sites; including but not limited to WaPo and WSJ.
The black family has been destroyed, as Daniel Patrick Moynihan, the last intelligent Democrat, pointed out in Congress in the 60s, when the black illegitimacy rate was 25%. He said that soon, the numbers would be much higher, therefore the expectation of marriage before childbearing was over for blacks.
Trouble is, at this point in time, white and hispanic illegitimacy rates are higher than black rates were then, and have been for some time. So it's all over but the profiteering by "wedding planners" and divorce lawyers.
