Over Half of NYC Abortions are Repeat Abortions

New abortion data from LifeSiteNews:

The Chiaroscuro Foundation examined the data surrounding New York City’s staggering 41% abortion ratio, breaking the figures down by zip code, and its new analysis shows the zip code with the highest abortion ratio in the city, 67%, is in Manhattan’s Chelsea-Clinton neighborhood.

“The data, which was provided by the New York City Department of Health at the Chiaroscuro Foundation’s request, show the abortion rate by the zip code of residence of women receiving abortions in New York City,” the organization noted. “The zip code with the highest ratio, 10018, is in the Chelsea-Clinton neighborhood of Manhattan, with a ratio of 67%, followed by rates of 60% in two Jamaica, Queens zip codes and in Manhattan’s Greenwich Village, 10012, and Central Harlem-Morningside Heights neighborhoods.”

“The five zip codes with the lowest abortion ratios are on the Upper East Side, in Lower Manhattan, on the Upper West Side, and in Borough Park, Brooklyn.  The lowest ratio, 6.12%, is in 10162,” it continued.

The Chiaroscuro Foundation also asked for information from the city’s Department of Health and Mental Hygiene about the number of repeat abortions and it found that, in 2009, 48,627 of the 87,273 abortions in New York City, or 56%, were repeat abortions and 33,401, 38%, were paid for by Medicaid.

Which is more sickening to you: that almost 7 out of 10 pregnancies in the Chelsea-Clinto neighborhood of Manhattan end in abortion, or that nearly 4 our of 10 were paid for with taxpayer funds?

    Many women use it as birth control. It is so morally disgusting beyond belief.

    I would not get an abortion. I have had friends keep their babies after rape. It can be done. Educating women iabout their options is all we can do.

    The problem is if you don’t want a baby don’t have unprotected sex and at the VERY least do not do it REPEATEDLY

    Better than thousands of abused kids on welfare….you can’t legislate sex, and people are going to do what they desire much of the time instead of thinking. Should we go back to back alley carnage…how can we stop this from happening?!?

      Only if we continue the corrupt welfare system, and allow schools to teach Secular Humanist doctrines. “Master of my own fate.” “Absolute ownership of my own body.” These fallacies need to die before decency trumps sexual temptation for anyone.

    Since when did killing a human being not considered MURDER?

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000671529598 Marissa Graham

    would a mother be so quick to choose abortion if HER life was taken along with the child?

    Heartbreaking….Disgusting……..Repeats…….Get your tubes tied!!! How bout that idea???

    Murder is murder!

    And probably paid by the taxpayer in NYC

    So, basically – Catholics who are supposed to go to confession and receive Holy Eucharist at least one a year…are killing their children at twice that rate. Do we live in Bizzarro Land, or what??

    How many ( IT’S ) are going to be killed today?

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001031775993 Larry Ivie

    I guess it depends on what your definition of IT is!

    So Jon, do you consider something with a heart beat dead or alive? Is something growing inside a mother dead or alive?

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1264725326 James Dougherty

    Larry does have a point. There are several states where if you kill a pregnant woman, it’s two counts of murder. One for her, one for the kid… even if it wasn’t yet at a viable age.

    The law should stipulate that IF you get an abortion you also are made STERILE so you A) Can’t kill any more babies & B) cannot get knocked up again and cost the taxpayers even more money…

    I think that my 3 living children that have had heartbeats long before 24wks and that I felt kick long before 24wks have a right to disagree with anything science has to say. Incredible the things people attach value to in the country and the things they do not. What a sad thing,

    It appears as if they are using abortion ad birth control.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1020982521 Jim Burt

    A disagraceful abomination. Using birth control to begin with will help prevent the pregnancy. Unfortunately, some women can’t be, or don’t want to be bothered with birth control. They’d rather take their chances and then rip out the baby if they do get pregnant.

    Well, at least they have a sibling to share Heaven with.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1406055642 John Voorhees

    The central issue of abortion is the lack of taking responsibility. 1) Take responsibility for your body!. If you don’t want to get pregnant, get birth control. If you can’t afford birth control, don’t have sex. 2) Take responsibility for the life you created, BOTH OF YOU!

    This also tells me that there is a much higher ratio of F R A U D in some districts…I say NO Tax Money should be used for Abortions, ever….

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002908947293 Mark Todd

    If it will bring back personal responsibility ?? Yeah bring back back alley abortions…..

    But to a liberial or progressive it is not a life it is a mass of cells and an inconvience that needs to be gotten rid of.

    i have always said that the majority use abortion as birth control and are more than happy to let those who don’t believe in abortions pay for them….disgusting..

    It isn’t “health care”, it’s murder.

    ” women’s reproductive health” REALLY? These people will face God’s judgment. Blood is on the hands of many, including those who continue to vote for people who condone and encourage this. It is the shedding of innocent blood and the judgment will not be good. Just sayin…
