I was startled by this graph:
According to the city Health Department, 2008 saw 89,469 abortions performed in New York City -- seven for every 10 live births. Among black women, abortions out number live births by three to two.
These rates are shameful. We as a society must do more to help women with unexpected pregnancies. We must find a better way.
I am especially stunned at the number abortions among African-American women. More than half of a generation is gone.
Where is the outrage?
Update: These statistics are from page 41 of this report.
