Recently, I wrote about the horrific abortion numbers in New York City. They bear repeating. According to the Chiaroscuro Foundation, 41% of NYC pregnancies end in abortion. The 41% compares to 10% in Wisconsin and 24% nationwide. In 2009, 56% of NYC abortions were repeat abortions and 38% were paid for by Medicaid.
Enter the recently elected new mayor, Bill de Blasio. Anna Higgins of the Family Research Council writes that de Blasio, “has promised to partner with Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers to help them expand their business in the city. He says he plans to help abortionists find neighborhoods that lack convenient clinic access and provide them with ‘city sponsored’ space to set up shop.” He also wants to require doctors to be trained to do abortions. de Blasio believes that pro-life Pregnancy Help Centers are “sham” clinics and wants them shut down.
Just when you think the proponents of abortion could not be more extreme, they step up their ruthless campaign against women and helpless unborn babies. What a sad commentary on American society, and New Yorkers, that a man with such extreme views can be elected.
