Fascinating site shows New York abortions by Zip Code - 60% of black babies aborted
LifeSiteNews ^ | 9/13/11 | Jeremy Kryn

NEW YORK, NY, September 12, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) – New data on New York City’s 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 Manhattan’s Chelsea-Clinton neighborhood, followed by rates of 60% in two Jamaica, Queens zip codes and in Manhattan’s 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 women’s 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 city’s 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 city’s abortion rate.

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.

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.

I've heard this is why the crime rate in NYC is at historic lows. They're aborting the next generation of criminals. It's quite funny, in a perverse sort of way, that the actual abortions are OK, but what I just said isn't. What a strange, dysfunctional society we have.

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.

Is it at all possible on FR to make a “truth hurts” comment without four letter words and wishing disease on people? I can remember a time on FR when four letter words were unheard of. So different from Democratic Underground. Times change.

I understand your point. I also think that increasingly WE are getting our belly full of being polite while we are slandered and looted. That poster saved me from perhaps a more crude post, so much the better for the discussion.

At least those are words. Deeds are coming because those people are getting on our last nerve. Sorry it has come to that.

It seems black areas, and the areas where the “artists” (theater types) populate are the most decimated.

One of the problems with being a liberal is that they MUST control the media and education elites, because they don't reproduce. The liberals kill off their young (abortions) or don't even have them (the homosexuals and population control crowd) so their population must necessarily constantly be fighting a decrease, unless they can import (illegal aliens) or convert (innocent kids in the liberal school system and people who listen uncritically to the alphabet networks and MSM).

Not to worry. They are bringing in more than enough voters to make them the permanent majority party thru our pro-population growth legal immigration policies. 87% of the 1.2 million legal immigrants who enter our country annually are minorities as classified by the USG.

And almost all of the 500,000 illegal immigrants who enter each year are minorities. An estimated 300,000 to 400,000 anchor babies are born to illegal alien parents each year. By 2019 half of the children 18 and under in the U.S. will be classified as minorities and by 2039, half of the residents of this country will be minorities. Generally, immigrants and minorities vote predominantly for the Democrat Party. Hence, Democrats view immigration as a never-ending source of voters that will make them the permanent majority party.

The U.S. adds one international migrant (net) every 36 seconds. Immigrants account for one in 8 U.S. residents, the highest level in more than 80 years. In 1970 it was one in 21; in 1980 it was one in 16; and in 1990 it was one in 13. In a decade, it will be one in 7, the highest it has been in our history. And by 2050, one in 5 residents of the U.S. will be foreign-born.

Currently, 1.6 million legal and illegal immigrants settle in the country each year; 350,000 immigrants leave each year, resulting in a net immigration of 1.25 million. Since 1970, the U.S. population has increased from 203 million to 310 million, i.e., over 100 million. In the next 40 years, the population will increase by 130 million to 440 million. Three-quarters of the increase in our population since 1970 and the projected increase will be the result of immigration. The U.S., the world’s third most populous nation, has the highest annual rate of population growth of any developed country in the world, i.e., 0.977 percent (2010 estimate), principally due to immigration.

It’s not just artists - I’m in the theatre in NY so I’ll do a little bit of defense on the arts crowd. Remember, there are thousands of young women who come to New York to make it in business. In fact, most of my young neighbors are in business, not the arts. In any case, your statistics are deeply upsetting. Thanks for posting.

“In the theatre” - sounds like an interesting life! Can I ask you, do you have any idea what that particular zip (10018) has the very highest rate of abortion (67% of all recent pregnacies ended in abortion!) in NYC? That just seems SO high.

Very strange - it’s Hell’s Kitchen (or Clinton as the real estate agents insist on calling it). I don’t think of this area as being particularly black or Hispanic or any ethnic group, although, of course, there are plenty of blacks & Hispanics living there. But it’s not a ghetto or inner city. I would suggest it’s mostly a young, up and coming professionals. Unless it’s all the hookers who hang out on 11th Avenue.

Anyone out there who can explain this mystery?
