Here’s the shocking opening line in this August 9 Crain’s New York Business article:
In most of the United States, 24 abortions are carried out for every 100 live births. In New York, 72 abortions occur for every 100 live births.
This is the same New York that rejected federal abstinence funding last year as well as conducted a campaign to distribute 26 million condoms FREE. Workers even handed them out at subway stations.
This is the same New York that offers free taxpayer-funded abortions to poor women and boasts 56 taxpayer-funded programs to distribute contraceptives free or cheap, according to the Crain’s piece.
NY touts everything liberals say must be done to curb abortion. The answer to the increasing problem, according to the article?…
“To me, the problem is access,” says [Deborah] Kaplan [deputy commissioner of the city Department of Health and Mental Hygiene]. “If we improved access to contraceptives, there would be a reduction in abortion.”
She has got to be kidding. When will enough be enough? And where are the accusations against comprehensive sex ed for teaching adolescent ignorance of the consequences?
There are so many admissions in this article: that NYC sponsors black genocide, that abortion hurts women both physically and psychologically – although Crain’s sure tip-toes on those landmines, that abortion is used as a method of birth control. and that abortion should be linked to STDs, since pregnancy is proof there is lack of protection.
NY accounts for ~ 10% of all abortions nationwide, the by-product of wanton sex in the city.
