NYC Abortion Rates: Bronx Is Highest

The beginning of 2011 saw the most recent data on abortion rates throughout NYC.  Its just staggering!  41% of all pregnancies were aborted.  The Bronx had the highest rate of any borough followed by Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan and Staten Island.

As Michael Benjamin, a New York Assembly member has asked, “What is the leading cause of death in the Bronx, particularly poor black and hispanic neighborhoods?”

Answer:  abortion.

The expressed outrage over such a reality was left to New York Archbishop Timothy Dolan, outraged that the leading cause of death (60%) among African American’s in New York City is abortion.  Black women have three abortions for every live birth.  That’s staggering.

Benjamin’s article expressed that “the Ku Klux Klan or even the Aryan Nation” can’t compete with these statistics.

No comments from the National Organization of Women or Planned Parenthood.

Dolan said “we’ve been hearing for years that abortion should be safe, legal and rare.  Well, if that’s the goal, we’ve clearly, abysmally failed.”

The march of radical autonomy moves on disguised as freedom.

Pray that this be turned around.
