Eye-opening statistics about the rate of abortions in New York City have been released by the Health Department.
41% of all New York City pregnancies end in abortion.
The rate for minorities is even higher.
Broken down by race for 2009:
Specifically non-Hispanic Blacks have a 59.8% abortion rate.
Hispanics have a 41.3% abortion rate.
Asians have a 22.7% abortion rate.
And non-Hispanic Whites have a 20.4% abortion rate.
Back in 1998, 12 years ago, the number was actually 46%.
