    Which is irrelevant when the ratios are presented.


    Whites have 512 induced abortions per 1,000 live births.
    Hispanics have 686.9 abortions per 1,000 live births.
    Blacks have 1,259.7 abortions per 1,000 live births.



    When we look at the US as a whole the statistics are quite different.
    Where are they different? The one relevant bullet you had:

    Thirty percent of abortions occur to non-Hispanic black women, 36% to non-Hispanic white women, 25% to Hispanic women and 9% to women of other races.


    A 32.1% murder by abortion rate for Hispanics in New York is more than 25% nationally, but 25% nationally is still a vast over-representation by their 16% of the population.
    A 46.7% murder by abortion rate for Blacks in New York is more than 30% nationally, but 30% nationally is still a vast over-representation by their 12.6% of the population.

    Plus you're dealing with a lot of poverty in NYC especially among minorities and poverty correlates strongly with a likelihood to undergo abortion.
    Which is a red herring you're throwing out because the numbers with respect to ethnicity are as bad as they are claimed to be even if only the worst example was presented here.

    But apparently the blog author is more concerned with selling the story that there is some kind of racial targeting rather than showing statistics that are actually reflective of the US population as a whole or trying to make sense of them.
    And apparently you don't care that abortionists earn their living by killing children.

    Do you people honestly think Planned Parenthood is targeting people because of their race?
    Probably. Why should they not market themselves like any other business? Oh, because they kill kids for a living. So what's your response? Make sure they don't get accused of racism?

    I think there is a crazed attack on Planned Parenthood (abortion is 3% of everything that it does)
    I guess they also do marketing, promotion, drugs, counselling, legal and political as well as actually killing babies.

    Why do you want to defend baby-killers, Alate?
    Where is the evidence for a global flood?

    Birth rates among poorer communities have always been higher than those in affluent ones. I'm not really surprised by the figures, but I'd say poverty plays a tremendous role, not some genocidal program hidden in plain sight.

    Yeah, poverty seems like a strong underlying cause of abortions. I don't think that is very debatable. There's an interesting article that advocates ABORTION may be a contributor to POVERTY however. Here's the link if you want to check it out:

    - 50,382 (5.5%) were Asian
    - 101, 856 (11%) were White
    - 296,330 (32.1%) were Hispanic
    - 430,515 (46.7%) were Black

    79% of all abortions in New York City in that 10-yr period 726,845 babies were Black and Hispanic.

    The article makes the bold claim that Planned Parenthood targets black babies, and there have been 20 million aborted Black babies in the U.S. since 1973.

    Read the entire article here and please leave a comment as to your reaction from the story.

    Yikes. Very sad.
    Before you judge someone, walk a mile in their shoes. That way, if it turns out they are right and get mad at you, they are a mile away and barefoot.

    What's the ratio of non-Hispanic black women to the entire female population of the U.S.? And for each of the other categories? That would tell us more.

    Edit: Never mind - I seen this has already been answered upthread.

    Tried and waited then got tired, that's about it
