New York City’s Staggering Abortion Numbers

New York City is famous for doing things in a big way, and it appears that abortion is no exception. The Chiaroscuro Foundation recently released devastating information on abortions there:

  • New York City has a staggering 41% abortion ratio. This means there are 41 abortions for every 100 births. By comparison, the Wisconsin abortion ratio is 10 abortions for every 100 births.
  • The abortion ratio in the Chelsea-Clinton neighborhood was 67% or 67 abortions per 100 live births!
  • In 2009, 56% of New York City abortions were repeat abortions and 38% were paid for by tax dollars.

These alarming numbers are the back-drop for Governor Andrew Cuomo’s push for a bill in the state legislature that would radically expand abortion beyond these horrendous numbers. Sometimes, the push to be at the top comes with a very heavy price tag, in this case measured in human lives destroyed and women harmed.
