NEW YORK, NY, September 12, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) New data on New York Citys abortion statistics reveals an abortion ratio almost twice the national average. The report, provided by the New York City Department of Health at the request of the Chiaroscuro Foundation, a New York City non-for-profit organization that supports alternatives to abortion, said that of 225,667 pregnancies in 2009, there were 87,273 abortions.
The detailed data about abortion in New York has been published at NY41percent.com in the form of an interactive graphic.
Abortion rate statistics show that the zip code with the highest abortion ratio in the city, 67%, is in Manhattans Chelsea-Clinton neighborhood, followed by rates of 60% in two Jamaica, Queens zip codes and in Manhattans Greenwich Village and Central Harlem-Morningside Heights neighborhoods.
The five zip codes with the lowest abortion ratios are on the Upper East Side, in Lower Manhattan, on the Upper West Side, and in Borough Park, Brooklyn. While there are several mostly white neighborhoods among the highest rates, there is not a zip code with less than 57% white residents according to 2010 census data among the lowest rates. About 60% of African-American womens unborn babies were aborted, 41.3% for Hispanic women, 22.7% for Asians, and 21.4% for Caucasians.
The data revealed that in 2009, 48,627 of the 87,273 abortions in New York City, or 56%, were repeat abortions. 33,401, 38%, were paid for by Medicaid.
The Chiaroscuro Foundation is grateful to the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene for providing this detailed data; no city in the nation keeps better, more current records, said Chiaroscuro Foundation Executive Director Greg Pfundstein. Even so, given the citys extremely high abortion rate, we renew our call for Mayor Bloomberg to instruct the Department to release the data in an even more current fashion: preliminarily month by month throughout the year. Remember, we are still talking about 2009 data.
By being able to measure where the highest rates of abortion are occurring in the city, we can determine over time what methods of outreach work best to lower those rates, he said.
64% of New Yorkers believe the abortion rate is too high in New York City, including 57% of pro-choice women, according to a poll conducted by the polling firm McLaughlin & Associates for the Chiaroscuro Foundation. 74% believe that the overall 60% abortion rate in the African American community is too high. The Chiaroscuro Foundation is hoping to lower the number of abortions in New York City over time by working with New Yorkers and organizations that agree that the rate of abortion in New York is too high. It has pledged $1 million for 2011 to cut the citys abortion rate.

Bloomie must be sooooo proud. After all, he’s the creator of the immortal line to one of his pregnant employees: “kill it!”
Calling Al Sharpton....are you hearing this your boy and the rat party you support “is killing yo peeps”. Oh I forgot you were given a seat at the big table, it’s ok to enslave your own, like the NAACP, and the black causcus. Hypocrites?
Put's 9-11 in perspective....
Yep, we should have 77.2 million blacks instead of the 38.6 million we have now.
Margaret Sanger would be proud.
Having twice the number of Holders people around would sure help things about now.
LOL. And twice as many Dem voters who vote almost 100% Dem. And with 71% out of wedlock birth rate and school drop out rates of 50%, this is the social pathology for failure in this society and a culture of dependence upon Big Government.
Fascinating data. Ping for later.
may I say I agree with you.
I DO NOT care...
Actually, MOST the 77.2 million should never have been conceived in the first place. The trend of babies having babies is killing this country, and they will most likely end up another statistic before they reach adulthood anyway.
It would be an interesting comparison to graph this against birth rates by the same breakout
I would bet good money they would correlate
Checking some of the zips, the highest seems to be the old Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood, Jamaica and Rosedale in Queens, just over the border in Harlem. Also Greenwich village. So not only the blacks, but also the “artists”.
It sure is. If you told blacks you were going to take over 60% of their babies out of their wombs and kill them, you’d probably get the death penalty.
If they do it by choice, why it’s a great thing.
I have more sorrow over this abysmal condition that black leaders do, and yet I am thought to be a white racist by lots of blacks because I think Obama is doing a terrible job.
Well, Jamaica and Rosedale are black but Greenwich Village and the stupidly renamed Hell’s Kitchen? (Clinton, yuck!) Mostly young single women, I would guess, although there are plenty of Section 8s and welfare recipients who are all over Manhattan. And maybe some prostitutes. My neighborhood in Curry Hill is loaded with Methadone addicts and welfare recipients living in the horrible old tenements.
