Last week the Washington Examiner reported on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s latest abortion numbers. In 2011, the year of the most recent data, abortionists killed 730,322 unborn babies mostly for the mothers’ convenience.
Eighteen percent of all pregnancies ended in the death of the baby. Those numbers represented a downward trend from 2002.
CNSNews broke down more numbers from the report. New York City has been dubbed America’s abortion capital. It’s no surprise that black and Hispanic women account for over three quarters of all abortions in that city. (Nationally, slaughtered black babies make up a third of all abortions, and Hispanics about a quarter.) An excerpt:
For that total, 9,550 abortions were of white babies, which is 12.5% of the total; 35,188 babies were black (46.1% of total); 23,959 were Hispanic (31.4%); and another 7,554 “other” abortions, 9.9%, which includes Asians and Native Americans, as well as those babies not reported by race.
Abortions of black and Hispanic babies combined totaled 59,147 – that is 77.56% of the total abortions in NYC.
Blacks, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, make up 25.5% of the population of New York City, and Hispanics comprise 28.6% of the NYC population. Despite those population percentages, blacks make up 46.1% of the abortions, and Hispanics, 31.4%.
While whites comprise 44% of the NYC population, they made up 12.5% of total abortions in that city.
In 2011, expectant mothers in New York City killed 76,251 of their unborn children, which “surpasses the number of abortions of any state reporting, according to the CDC.”
We’re hearing a lot about how “black lives matter” in the wake of Ferguson. The unborn ones don’t seem to matter to most blacks, who vote for the party that supports “partial birth” abortion, or to Planned Parenthood. The Daily Caller reports that the abortion mill has injected itself into the Ferguson riots.
A taxpayer-funded organization that kills black babies has joined the protests and tweets the #blacklivesmatter hashtag–without shame or apparently any perception of the irony.
