Abortions outnumber live births among African American women living in New York City, according to a new health report.
Newly released Department of Health and Mental Hygiene figures show black women had 31,328 'crude induced terminations' in 2012, compared with 24,758 'live births'.
The terminations comprised more than 42 percent of the Big Apple's total number.
The second highest number of abortions were for Hispanic at 22,917, with this group's live births reaching 36,642.
Both groups outnumbered abortions for whites and Asian and Pacific Islanders, which had 9,704 and 4,493 terminations respectively.
Women aged 20-29 had the most abortions among all ethnicities, with more women in Brooklyn choosing to terminate rather than have a child.
The abortion ratio citywide fell to just over 37 per cent in 2012 - a record low since 1970 when abortion was legalized in New York.
Anti-abortion and religious groups have hit out at the figures, describing abortion as a 'problem' which the city is failing to adequately address.

As Planned Parenthood marks its 96th anniversary today, new research shows the abortion business targets blacks and Hispanics by putting 79% of its abortion clinics in minority neighborhoods.
Killing off future democrat voters?
Sadly — doing away with any life is wrong. God creates black children too.
Sadly doing away with any life is wrong. God creates black children too.
Amen. It’s not the child that fails - it’s the culture to which they are born.
Each of these children are precious. Our society will spare no expense to rescue a child who falls into an abandoned well, but each day there are thousands who are born who are statistically doomed to fail. We are deprived of our right to speak the truth and care for these children because we are not the right color.
Tribalism is more important than truth. We are told to shut up and pay for this injustice and our children will pay for the next generation and grandchildren the next. The American welfare state is a cancer that will destroy our nation from within, but the evil in the eyes of God must be the children.
Yet blacks keep voting for the political party whose “principles” are literally exterminating them. Makes sense.
Why would they want to be punished with a baby?
What's most scary are the number of women who have had multiple abortions..
It's literally a sacred rite of the nihilist state religion, the demonstrably false "religion of non-religion," whose practitioners are deceived, forgetting a choice not to decide is still a choice, and is, therefore, no "choice" at all.
How can one vote for the abortionist party and call themselves a Christian? I’m so confused.
Margret Sanger would be proud!
