NEW YORK, New York, January 5, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) With the highest abortion rate in the nation, nearly double the 23% national average, New York continues to be a place that babies in the womb cannot love.
New York City Department of Health released data that shows that 83,750 abortions were performed in New York City in 2010, which translated to 40% of all pregnancies, down from 41% in 2009.
The Bronx saw a staggering 48% of pregnancies end in abortion. The city lost 38,574 African-Americans babies to abortion, a dumbfounding 60% of the citys African-American pregnancies. New York has the highest abortion rate in the country.
In parts of the city more than half of all pregnancies end in abortion - this is very, very disturbing, said Greg Pfundstein, Executive Director of the Chiaroscuro Foundation, a pro-life organization that says it was instrumental in the citys decision to itemize the abortion and pregnancy statistics and release them in a more timely manner.

The abortion industry must be making bank.
The black community can thank Planned Parenthood!! Why are no Black leaders decrying this?
Paging Al sharpton and Jesse!
New York City....the true “murder capital” of the United States.
The only shock to me is that it isn`t higher. After all, the partial-birth abortion-supporting”leader” in the WH considers babies a “punishment.”
I wonder how many of these are partial-birth murders?
This is really sad, and combined with the fact that Rasmussen came out with poll results that said that only 43% of Americans are pro-life, while 49% are pro-abortion. http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/general_politics/january_2012/49_of_voters_are_pro_choice_43_pro_life It just goes to show we still a lot of progress to make.
The abortionists and women who have abortions in NYC are no different than the thugs sitting on Death Row.
...New York City is Auschwitz.
But seriously, can you imagine being part of that generation, knowing when you get to school, for every three kids you see, you know two other were aborted.
A partial birth abortion in no worse than a first trimester abortion as they are both murder.
If conservatives killed this many African-American babies it would be "genocide" (the deliberate and systematic extermination of a national, racial, political, or cultural group). Of course, when the liberals/progressives do it, it's only "pro-choice".
Nah, look at it this way; 38,574 future welfare recipients that we don’t have to pay for.
I guess condoms don't work as well as their supporters claim.
Dems killing Dems.
....and that won’t be voting.
