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%.
