41% of NYC pregnancies end in abortion
abc ^ | 01.06.11 | Michelle Charlesworth

Posted on 01/06/2011 9:03:09 PM PST by Coleus

New and eye-opening statistics about the rate of abortions in New York City have been released by the Health Department. It raises questions about the effectiveness of current birth control education.

41% of all New York City pregnancies end in abortion. The rate for minorities is even higher. Both sides say the high abortion percentage is a crisis. "If 41% of New York babies are aborted, with the percentage even higher in the Bronx and among our African-American babies in the world, it is downright chilling," New York Archbishop Timothy Dolan said.

Broken down by race for 2009:

Specifically non-Hispanic Black's have a 59.8% abortion rate.

Hispanics have a 41.3% abortion rate.

Asians have a 22.7% abortion rate.

And non-Hispanic Whites have a 20.4% abortion rate.

The fact that 41% of all pregnancies in New York City end in abortion is not a secret and it's not anything new. In fact, things have been getting better over the past decade. Back in 1998, 12 years ago, the number was actually 46%.

Planned Parenthood is also not happy about the numbers, but pushes education. "We believe in comprehensive sex education, which by the way does include abstinence, but abstinence by itself has been proven to be ineffective,"

Archbishop Dolan reiterated the pro-abstinence, pro-life, anti-contraceptive position of the church. "My word, what have we done the last 30 years. 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,"

With staggering numbers like this, one can conclude that the anti abortion troops should be descending into the figurative ground zero. With almost a %50 kill rate, it only make sense.

Amazing: the more scientists learn about unteruterine development, they more they see how human the fetus is. a study reported in “Discovery” says that twin feti seem to recognize each other at 18 weeks. Some may think they are just part of the woman, but they evidentally know they are not, nor are they like their twin. Yet the public seems convinced that beings who show such signs deserve no more respect than a kidney.

Well, there is that story about a virgin who got pregnant a couple thousand years ago, but a failure rate of 1 out of billions hardly proves that abstinence is ineffective.

Russia leads the world. They murder over half their babies. In 93, over 70%.

Muslims don’t murder their babies and they have lots of them. They will win if God and humanity doesn’t stop this.

percentages are very sterile... unless you accompany them with an actual number of aborted babies

last i heard, it was roughly 1.2m / yr in the US. about 1 in 5 of all pregnancies

of that, 38,000 were in the ‘rape and incest’ category.

That’s a lot of emotional time bombs out there. The “parents” either shut down their minds or punish themselves with guilt. Either way, they become damaged goods.

Good observation... It is worrying. I highly recommend "What we can't not know" by J. Budziszewski for anyone interested in a thoughtful investigation of how this plays out. The natural law is harsh, but good....

>>Mass Murder<<

And nothing will change these numbers until “pro-choice” is excised from the English language. Abortionists are child molesters. Drilling a hole in a baby’s head and sucking out the brain qualifies as child molesting.

Bishops need to publicly excomminicate all the child molesters.

>>Participation in an abortion results in automatic excommunication.<<

It’s the age-old question: If a tree falls in the forest, and there is no one to hear it, does it make any noise.” So too with automatic excommunication. If no one hears about it, does anyone know?

The purpose of public excommunication is to expose the sinner in hopes that the sinner has a change of heart.

Didn’t the Kennedy’s support abortion all these years? Aren’t they still Catholics in good standing?

Sorry, but I don’t buy it. When will the Pope start excommunicating Bishops and Cardinals and prominent people who are openly and publicly supporting abortion and homosexuality?

As long as these people are supporting the Catholic Church with money, he never will.

Not surprised. I am sure that NARAL and Planned Parenthood are actually quite proud of this statistic and will use it in their fundraising letters. They are unscrupulous and consider abortion to be part of “women’s healthcare”, whatever that means.

I think the illiterate PP spokes-thing meant abstinence “education”. Of course, the only method that works is abstinence, if you practice it every single time! Birth control at some point fails. Just saying “no” does not exist in the vocabulary of many people.

I invite everyone to participate in the new spring campaign for 40 Days for Life which begins March 9. Join in and pray at your local death mill.

Also, Abby Johnson, who formerly worked for Planned Parenthood and “escaped,” has written a compelling book called UNPLANNED, to be release January 11. It is sure to very devastating to PP since they sued to keep her silent (and lost!).

The purpose of excommunication is to remove someone from union with the Church; the public matter would apply to a public act.

I never heard of J. Budziszewski before, so I Googled him after seeing your post. I found the following in a wikipedia entry about him:

He argues, The normal outlet of remorse is to flee from wrong; of the need for confession, to admit what one has done; of atonement, to pay the debt; of reconciliation, to restore the bonds one has broken; and of justification, to get back in the right. But if the Furies are denied their payment in [their proper] coin, they exact it in whatever coin comes nearest, driving the wrongdoer's life yet further out of kilter. We flee not from wrong, but from thinking about it. We compulsively confess every detail of our story, except the morale. We punish ourselves again and again, offering every sacrifice except the one demanded. We simulate the restoration of broken intimacy, by seeking companions as guilty as ourselves. And we seek not to become just, but to justify ourselves.[9]

Budziszewski holds that the only way to break this vicious circle is to admit that one has done wrong and to repent, in reliance on the grace of God. Failure to break out of the vicious circle leads to a variety of moral pathologies in the individual, the culture, and the body politic.

Those are some amazing insights. I can't begin to count how many women have confided in me, out of the blue, that they've had an abortion, usually followed with some kind of excuse for it. But no one has ever confessed that they have, for instance, had an appendictomy. Those paragraphs from the wiki article really do explain that behavior.
