Posted on 03/14/2014 8:46:27 AM PDT by neverdem
In New York City, 80% of the babies killed by abortion in 2012 were minorities: Hispanics, Asians, Pacific Islanders, and Blacks.
According to a Pregnancy Outcomes report published by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, there were a total 73,815 induced terminations, or abortions, in 2012 in the five boroughs that comprise New York City. (See Pregnancy Outcomes NYC 2012.)[PDF]
Among those abortions, 58,738 were of babies of minority race or ethnicity. Thats 79.57% of the total, or approximately 80% of all the abortions that year.
The abortions by race/ethnicity and number are listed below:
Asian & Pacific Islander 4,493
The report also shows that there were 9,704 non-Hispanic white abortions in 2012, which equals 13.1% of the total.
The 58,738 minority abortions and 9,704 white induced terminations equals 68,442, which is 5,373 less than the total of 73,815. According to the report, those 5,373 abortions were of children of other/unknown ethnicities. (See Pregnancy Outcomes NYC 2012.pdf)(PDF)
The greatest number of abortions out of the total, for all races/ethnicities, occurred in Brooklyn 21,686 babies killed according to the report.
The borough of Brooklyn has the second lowest median household income ($45,215) among the five boroughs that comprise New York City, and has 22.7% of its residents living below the poverty level, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.
The Bronx has the lowest median household income ($34,300) among the five boroughs, and has 29.3% of its residents living below the poverty level. It also had the second largest number of abortions, 17,468 out of the total, in 2012.
The five boroughs that make up New York City are Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens, Staten Island and Manhattan.
That’s what its for.
Margaret Sanger cheering from Hell right now.
Conservatives - “Don’t kill your babies”
Liberals - “No, no we want to kill our babies”
They bought the lies of Sharpton and Jackson and now they kill their offspring!
Are we hitting the right numbers or will there be PSAs from Michelle that the numbers are too low?
Conservatives should help liberals self-actualize.
Then the problem solves itself.
Can we get it to 100%?
(No, I’m not serious.)
And to think these are only 2012 numbers.
Approximate live birth to induced abortion ratios:
Half of the births in the city were to black and Hispanic women. Most of the black and Hispanic births were to women under 30; most of the white and Asian births to women over 30. The differences in the pregnancy rates were not huge, ranging from 76/1000 in Asian women to 115/1000 for black women.
My mom got involved with the Pro Life movement in its earliest days. They could see liberal states like New York legalizing it in the 60’s and knew what was coming.
At the time Jesse Jackson was very outspoken in railing against abortion as being “genocide waged against the black race”.
That was before the Democrat Party started writing him checks to get his mind right.
It’s a strong testimonial to conservative values that we fight to save the lives of future members of the Entitlement Army / lifetime D voters.
Mayeb the way to stop abortion would be if someone could get klan members to start beating up anti-abortion protesters in front of abortion centers?????
Who the heck am I kidding, the radical Femi-Nazis would join the actual Nazis.....
I always write this to people who think Margaret Sanger is cheering from hell, or words to that effect: the minority population is increasing relative to the white, and the underclass relative to the productive and law-abiding in spite of abortion. The people Sanger wished to stop breeding are winning the birth race. So perhaps Sanger is actually weeping from hell.
But “Hispanics are natural conservatives...”
Thank God for those Hispanics and their traditional God-fearing family values.
They're always trying to paint a rosy picture.
Doing the work Margaret Sanger and the Klan couldn’t do.
There goes the myth of the conservative Catholic Hispanics that would vote GOP because of social issues.
The Klan is the same party as those running the abortion clinics.
Scratch a pro-abortion fanatic and you will find a racist.
What is the rationale for these statistics/data base? Ethnicity has nothing to do with killing babies. Conscience and belief in God are paramount. Plus the racial data is suspect.
1. With respect to obtaining an abortion - only the race of the mother is certain - since the sperm donor is either not known or ignored.
2. If, as some of these racist comments imply, young black and Hispanic women have babies for Government handouts - please explain their motivation to have abortions.
3. The snide comments related to religious women not getting abortions are contemptible. How do FReepers condemn abortion in one breath and want to see more of it in another?
4. The most unconscionable excuse for killing an unborn baby - it seems to me - is the inconvenience of an unplanned, unwanted pregnancy - resulting from planned, desired sexual activity. For which castration should be mandatory.
Bring it on!!!!!!!!!!!!!
FReepmail me if you want on or off my New York ping list.
The link to the pdf doesn’t work.
We could be rid of abortion if conservative men were not afraid of their pro-abort wives.
Why would a conservative man have a pro-abort wife in the first place? I don’t think I’d call anyone “conservative” who marries someone who favors killing babies.
A baby is a baby, enough said.
It’s the democrat fascist solution to minority women not feeding their children properly and being unable to find affordable daycare. It just proves they really care about such things.
From the .pdf ..
Non-Hispanic blacks were disproportionately more likely to have preterm (12.4%) and low
birth weight infants (12.0%) than other racial/ethnic groups (Figures 7-12).
It’s indisputible that abortion has bad consequences for future pregnancies ,,, why isn’t a fight to have TRUE informed consent ongoing in all states?
I copied Pregnancy Outcomes NYC 2012, added quotation marks, "Pregnancy Outcomes NYC 2012," googled it and voila!
It almost always works for actaul text without links when you want the source.
OK, Republican men. My point was that it is the married women who are pushing “choice,” and that men have to keep peace with their wives, especially men who don’t fool around and thus have no other sexual outlet. They don’t even realize it (the men). It’s almost part of being a gentelman and respecting your wife’s wishes. That’s my impression anyway. No statistics, of course, to back me up.
Thanks for the ping!
