Claim that contraception caused NYC’s big abortion drop defies reality

by Kelli

NYCabortionsThe City’s claim that increased use of contraception is the cause of the substantial decline is quite perplexing, though. While the CDC through its comprehensive National Survey of Family Growth has found steadily declining rates of teenage sexual activity, they have not found substantial increases in contraceptive use. And the City has been pushing Plan B for several years, which studies show does not decrease the pregnancy rate. If the City has data proving their claim, they should make it available to the public.

The abortion ratio citywide fell to just over 37% in 2012 – a record low since 1970 when abortion was legalized in New York. The Bronx continues to lead the city with an abortion ratio of 47%. The largest drop in the abortion ratio was in Brooklyn, which saw the ratio drop from 37 percent to 34%.

~ Greg Pfundstein of the Chiaroscuro Foundation, responding to the latest reports that New York City’s abortion rate has “plummeted” to levels just slightly above those in 1973, as quoted by Alveda King at Newsmax.com, February 19

The abortion percentages for NYC are still currently at “61% among black women, 35% among Hispanics and about 14% among whites and Asians.”

BREAKING: Live Action launches new investigation on late-term abortions

Video #1: Infanticide in the Bronx: Abortion survivors dunked in poison

2013-04-28_0352

UDPATE, 9:42p: Also the New York Times.

UDPATE, 6:40p: Melinda Henneberger at the Washington Post is reporting on this story, as is The Daily Caller, Kathryn Jean Lopez at National Review Online, PolicyMic, Fox News, and Hot Air.

5:54a: Today, Live Action is launching a new investigative video series on late-term abortions in America: “Inhuman: Undercover in America’s Late-Term Abortion Industry.”

Was Kermit Gosnell an anomaly? Not if the findings in Live Action’s first released video are any indication.

Dr. Emily’s Women’s Health Center is a late-term abortion clinic located in the Bronx section of New York City, where a wincing 41% of pregnancies end in abortion. A Live Action investigator who was 23 weeks pregnant – with a potentially viable baby – visited this mill for shocking results.

2013-04-28_0414The abortion counselor is caught on tape describing in gruesome detail how the baby is removed and instructs the investigator to “flush” the baby down the toilet if he or she is accidentally delivered at home before the final stage of the two-day abortion procedure.

“If it comes out, then it comes out. Flush it. … If anything, you know, put it in a bag or something or somewhere and bring it to us.”

When Live Action’s undercover investigator asks what happens if the baby is born alive, “twitching, or something like that,” at the clinic, the counselor says the baby will be put in a solution, which “will make it stop.”

“The solution will make it stop. It’s not going to be moving around in the jar … that’s the whole purpose of the solution…. It’ll automatically stop. It won’t be able to [breathe]…not with the solution.”

The “solution,” as described by the counselor, who agrees it is a “toxic” substance, is likely formalin, a tissue preservative made of formaldehyde, a poison.

We have that to keep it clean, and, you know, ’cause by the time it gets to the lab, it sill needs to be freshly, you know….”

The counselor also falsely claims that laminaria – seaweed sticks that are inserted into the cervix to dilate it – will  kill the baby.

The seaweed is where the heartbeat – that’s what kills the heartbeat as well…. they’re toxic.

The counselor warns the investigator not to call the hospital if her baby is delivered at home, falsely claiming the hospital wouldn’t accept her anyway.

‘Cause we started it first, the hospital won’t take you. They won’t touch you, either, because we started it. So whoever starts it has to finish it.

A second counselor gives contradictory information, telling the investigator it’s all a matter of location, that the baby must be killed “inside the body,” because were that same baby “outside the body… he has to resuscitate it; he has to send it to the hospital. That’s the law.”

Here’s Live Action’s first video…

The horrors of late-term abortions exposed by the Gosnell story were only the beginning. Stay tuned.

 

Pro-life news brief 8-24-12

by JivinJ, host of the blog, JivinJehoshaphat

  • CNN has posted the Republican party’s plank on the sanctity and dignity of human life.
  • The Obama campaign really has no shame. They’re attacking Mitt Romney for not wanting to waste his time talking about Representative Akin’s comments and fulfilling the media’s and the Democratic party’s dream of it lasting another week in the news. This attack from a campaign which doesn’t allow reporters to interview campaign surrogates unless they give them veto power over their quotes.

  • At The Atlantic, Rebecca Rosen badly garbles abortions in America pre-Roe. This paragraph is embarrassing. Where are the editors?

    Of course no official statistics were kept, but Reagan cites some late-19th-century doctors as estimating a rate of about two million abortions per year. Studies confirmed their prevalence: One, of some 10,000 working-class women who visited birth-control clinics in the late 1920s, found that 10 to 23 percent had had abortions. A smaller study at a clinic in the Bronx in the early 1930s found that 35 percent of women – Catholics, Protestants, and Jews alike – had had at least one abortion. And of course, because abortion occurred mostly on the black market, they were very dangerous: One estimate placed the annual death toll at 5,000 women.

    2 million abortions a year in the late 19th century? That abortion rate would be astronomical. The census bureau estimates there were only around 76 million people in the U.S. in 1900. So approximately 1/4 as many people were having nearly twice as many abortion as today? Back when abortions were illegal? If Leslie Reagan thinks 2 million annual abortion is a good estimate of late-19th-century United States, then maybe you shouldn’t believe a word she says because she’s clearly not competent.

    Rosen then provides some other numbers for women who said they had abortions but does nothing to show how those unnamed studies would prove anywhere near 2 million annual abortions especially since the percent of women who supposedly admitted to having had abortions in one of the studies is lower than the number (1/3) touted by abortion advocates today.

    Lastly, she doesn’t mention that the annual death estimate of 5,000 has been debunked for decades.

    How do these people find writing jobs?

Vandals destroy Bronx pregnancy care center; “They even stole our Pampers.”

They even stole the Pampers. Click all photos to enlarge.

Chris Slattery, founder and president of EMC Frontline Pregnancy Care Centers, a group of 12 pccs located throughout the New York City area, told LifeSiteNews.com he thought it was likely “drug addicts seeking some quick cash” who burglarized and vandalized EMC’s South Bronx location last night.

Not so fast. With Slattery and EMC at the center of the opposition against NYC’s recently passed hostile law forcing pccs to post signage that they do not commit abortions, my first thought was the vandals were hostile pro-aborts. Would run-of-the-mill ne’er do wells go so far as to tear up the floors?

NYT: Planned Parenthood to “retrain staff” – that 13-year-olds may be rape victims?

First, Planned Parenthood denied any wrong-doing whatsoever after it revealed an alleged sex trafficker had shown up at the door of several of its abortion mills across the country requesting services for 14-yr-old and illegal sex slaves.

PP CEO Cecile Richards went further by claiming she had marched straight to the door of the highest law enforcement official in the land to rat on the pimp.

After Live Action released its 1st investigative video, PP said the egregious response of the “waist up” staffer was an isolated event.

Now, as each additional  video further proves PPs across the country are sex trafficking havens,  the  New York Times reported February 7 PP says it will “retrain” its staff nationwide. The relevant quotes:

In this video, a PP staffer goes so far as to tell the “pimp” he can post as a guardian to get taxpayer funded services for his minor prostitutes.

The video additionally shows a PP Supervisor also willing to assist the “pimp.”…
