Shock: 40% of New York pregnancies aborted
Life Site News ^ | 1/5/12 | Peter Baklinski

Posted on 01/05/2012 4:10:13 PM PST by Nachum

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 city’s 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 city’s decision to itemize the abortion and pregnancy statistics and release them in a more timely manner.

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.”

280 innocent lives snuffed out every day in just one American town. The liberals must be very proud.

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.

Well, that's 40% less liberals in the next generation. /sarc

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.

The city lost 38,574 African-Americans babies to abortion, a dumbfounding 60% of the city’s African-American pregnancies.

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".

New York City offers free condoms at more than 3,000 locations: http://www.nyc.gov/html/doh/html/pr2011/pr003-11.shtml

I guess condoms don't work as well as their supporters claim.

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.

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.

An innocent pre-born baby does not have a party affiliation.

Killing them for the sins of their parents is murder.

The black community can thank Planned Parenthood!!

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?

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.

Give me a break

(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)
