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.
If only they had more sex education in schools, there would be no need for abortion.
“Nah, look at it this way; 38,574 future welfare recipients that we dont have to pay for.”
And a hell of a lot of Dems too!
I do not like abortion, however. The silver lining is that democrats embraced abortion rights and account for abut 69% of all abortions since Role vs. Wade. I dispise publically funded abortions but again the democrats prevailed spending our tax money to kill mostly their own population. Christian’s (about 70% of the republicans by many counts) raise families with a both a father and mother, unlike the democrats who are mostly single mothers and bra burning hipsters. The silver lining is that without 43 million more democrats pulling the level this year at the election booth, Obama and his minions will need all the illegal aliens they can “non-ID” to vote at the polls.
Their destiny is not predetermined by their parent’s values. Statistically speaking, you are probably right but predetermining which innocent lives are worth allowing and which are not is wrong. God makes those decisions.
Aborting innocent life is OK with you as long as the parents are lefties?
“Dems killing Dems.”
You don’t know that. Are you God? You can predict what the murdered innocent life would have been?
“The silver lining is that democrats embraced abortion rights ...”
There is no silver lining in the abortion of innocent life.
Not that it makes much of a moral difference, but very few doctors will perform those.
In New York City (and Chicago), abortionists advertise their phone numbers on little posters in public transportation such as buses and subways. Waiting until the last minute is unlikely.
The earlier less gruesome abortions are the easiest, and that's the way the abortionists like it.
“Aborting innocent life is OK with you as long as the parents are lefties?”
yes, frankly I dont believe 3 month old embryo is an indpendent life.
Well then whose DNA does it have?
I am pro-life. I was just pointing out that, as designed by Sanger and her rascist cohorts, blacks are being wiped out. 92 percent of blacks vote commie.
An innocent pre-born baby does not have a party affiliation.
Killing them for the sins of their parents is murder.
You do realize this is pro-life site, right?
yes, frankly I dont believe 3 month old embryo is an indpendent life.
Neither is a 3 month old, what does that have to do with anything??
Can you finish this sentence?
It’s OK to kill a baby in the womb when ________??
Oh, and yes it’s a baby, never in the history of man has a human pregnancy ended in puppies, goldfish, etc.
“Since you are in favor of pre-born babies being killed by abortion, you ARE a liberal.”
No I just dont agree with everything anyone says.
The "black community" can thank the demonicRat Party, for which it votes >90% in every election.
The "black community" can also thank itself ... Neither Planned Barrenhood nor the demonicRat Party forces those women at gunpoint to walk into the abortuary. They do it voluntarily, or they do it under pressure of their families ... all members of the "black community". They're committing ethnic cleansing on themselves.
You do, however, agree with killing babies.
Question is, are you an actual baby killer or do you just provide top cover for them?
I agree with you. I was merely pointing out the irony of their position.
“You do, however, agree with killing babies.
Question is, are you an actual baby killer or do you just provide top cover for them?”
Give me a break-I dont believe a two month old embryo is a human baby and neither do most people.
“Give me a break-I dont believe a two month old embryo is a human baby and neither do most people.”
Then perhaps you are hanging out with the wrong people. The owner of this site is pro-life. Take it up with him or post your liberal garbage somewhere else. You go to a thread on THIS site about abortion and take a pro-abort position?
I’m not interested in listening to some fool defend the murder of innocent life. This site is for conservatives.
First of all, ALL pro-lifers know that life starts at conception.
Secondly, if you don't believe a two month old fetus is a human, what EXACTLY do you believe it is? Do you think there's a chance that it might grow into a giraffe or something?
This is a PRO-LIFE forum and your beliefs show that you clearly don't belong here.
Newsflash, this is a pro-life site and ‘most people’ around here do believe a 2 month embryo is a human baby.
Then just what do you/those people think it is?
It would appear that bilhosty....has been aborted.
(Your mom already did...she didn't abort you -- when she could have)
And, hey, that wasn't some bilhosty "imposter" up to some superstitious "Magical" point in your mom's womb...was it? That was you, wasn't it?
-I dont believe a two month old embryo is a human baby and neither do most people.
What is he or she then? A monkey? A rat? Less than that?
Even if you were only educated to read Dr. Seuss, you'd at least know "a person's a person no matter how small."
But since you apparently never got up to the Dr. Seuss level, you can still see ultrasounds of little ones.
Brain waves at 40 days in the womb. Heart beats at 3 weeks in the womb. Those 2 things will be used to determine when you're dead. All 2-month embryos have them. Since you negate their brain waves and heart beats as no determination of their lives, do us all a favor and ask that those two criteria be eliminated from your own as some "determination" of if you're alive or not.
(Hey. At least you'll be a bit more consistent)
Thank you, Jim! There is nothing more righteous or chivalrous than defending the unborn. You’re the Man!
