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,"

And NY lost two congressional districts in the 2010 apportionment.
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.
Sick. This is going on all over Europe too.
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.

I vote for this as post of the day!
“They will win if God and humanity doesnt stop this.”
Christ has already won.
Yep, they think the figures for blacks should be 100%.
“Christ has already won”
Well, I hope he hurries up and saves the rest of us from this madhouse.
