Eugenics at its' best...
41% of NYC pregnancies end in abortion
New and eye-opening statistics about the rate of abortions in New York City have been released by the Health Department.
It raises questions about the effectiveness of current birth control education. 41% of all New York City pregnancies end in abortion.
The rate for minorities is even higher. Both sides say the high abortion percentage is a crisis.
"If 41% of New York babies are aborted, with the percentage even higher in the Bronx and among our African-American babies in the world, it is downright chilling," New York Archbishop Timothy Dolan said.
Broken down by race for 2009:
Specifically non-Hispanic Black's have a 59.8% abortion rate.
Hispanics have a 41.3% abortion rate.
Asians have a 22.7% abortion rate.
And non-Hispanic Whites have a 20.4% abortion rate.
The fact that 41% of all pregnancies in New York City end in abortion is not a secret and it's not anything new.
In fact, things have been getting better over the past decade. Back in 1998, 12 years ago, the number was actually 46%.
