In New York City, 80% of the babies killed by abortion in 2012 were minorities: Hispanics, Asians, Pacific Islanders, and Blacks.
According to a “Pregnancy Outcomes” report published by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, there were a total 73,815 “induced terminations,” or abortions, in 2012 in the five boroughs that comprise New York City. (See Pregnancy Outcomes NYC 2012.pdf)
Among those abortions, 58,738 were of babies of minority race or ethnicity. That’s 79.57% of the total, or approximately 80% of all the abortions that year.
The abortions by race/ethnicity and number are listed below:
Asian & Pacific Islander 4,493
The report also shows that there were 9,704 “non-Hispanic white” abortions in 2012, which equals 13.1% of the total.
The 58,738 minority abortions and 9,704 white induced terminations equals 68,442, which is 5,373 less than the total of 73,815. According to the report, those 5,373 abortions were of children of “other/unknown ethnicities.”

Contrary to what many in the mainstream media have claimed, the conservative Christian group that backed and drafted Arizona’s Religious Freedom Law has not been pouting since Gov. Jan Brewer (R) vetoed the measure. In fact, the organization is actually celebrating the fact that 123 of the bills it has supported since its inception in 1995 have been signed into law.
The Center for Arizona Policy (CAP) is Arizona’s leading pro-life, pro-family organization. As the Huffington Post pointed out, the day after Brewer vetoed Arizona’s Religious Freedom Law (SB 1062), the state House passed the Women’s Health Protection Act (HB 2884), a bill that was also backed and co-drafted by CAP. This bill seeks to allow unannounced inspections of abortion clinics when, “consistent with standard medical practices,” it is determined that “there is reasonable cause to believe an abortion clinic is not adhering to the licensing requirements… concerning abortion.”
Aaron Baer, Communications Director of CAP, says his organization was taken aback at how their “simple bill was blown up into something else.”
“There’s no doubt that misinformation about SB 1062 came from the left’s PR camp on same-sex marriage,” Baer said in an interview with Breitbart News. “They framed it as something it is not, and the governor vetoed a bill that didn’t actually exist.”
“Some people say government should get out of the marriage business,” Baer said. “ But government is in the business of marriage because marriage enhances society. We’d like to have honest discussions about why marriage matters, and about religious freedom, but, from the left, all we seem to get are personal attacks.”

Radical leftist activists crashed a pro-life demonstration at the University of Georgia and erected a wall of censorship around an anti-abortion display in order to shield the campus from the reality of abortion.
Justice for All, a pro-life group, erected an anti-abortion display at the University of Georgia on Monday. The public display contained graphic images of aborted fetuses.
To prevent members of the campus community from actually seeing the images, students from two pro-choice groups — the Women’s Studies Student Organization and Sexual Health Advocacy Group — stood around the display holding up sheets. The sheets walled off the display and kept the images out of the gazes of people walking by, according to Blake Seitz, a UGA student and contributor to The College Fix.
Danielle Duncan, one of the pro-choice activists, said the pro-life display constituted “hate speech,” because it could trigger negative emotions to people who saw it.

Silencing the words and ideas of those you disagree with is always a sign that your words and ideas would likely not stand on their own.
President Barack Obama and Planned Parenthood, the genocidal organization Margaret Sanger founded to eliminate Blacks and other “human weeds” as she calls them, from the planet, have been bosom buddies since his election — and the president has kept flow of taxpayer funds on ever since entering the White House in 2009. This year’s budget proposal is no exception.
As Tom Minnery of March for Life explains:
The good news in President Obama’s budget is that Title X funds (p. 434) that generally give money to entities like Planned Parenthood have gone down from $297,400,000 to $286,479,000. (That is still higher than the figure in 2007 ($283,146,000.))
Also it appears that $5,000,000 is set aside for true abstinence education (p. 490) while almost six times that amount is reserved for “comprehensive” abstinence education that does everything from encouraging young kids to shower together to helping fund online “How to BDSM” videos for teens.
The bad news is the Obamacare slush funds make it impossible to fathom where some of the money will be going. In one instance the budget gives ” approximately $14.6 billion over 10 years to implement innovative policies to train new health care providers and ensure that the future health care workforce is prepared to deliver high-quality and efficient health care services. To encourage and enhance training of primary care practitioners, and other physicians in high-need specialties.”
While this provision is probably to counter the rapid loss of doctors the country is facing over Obamacare regulations, I cannot remember if when we were fighting Obamacare if we put in protections to ensure that money doesn’t go to training of future abortionists, however regardless if we did or not considering this Administrations flagrant willful ignorance of the law there is little guarantee.
The $350 million slush fund known as “Community Services Block Grants” still exists as well, to be distributed at the whim of the Secretary.

Although whites outnumber blacks in Mississippi by nearly 2-to-1, 71.67% of the babies aborted in Mississippi are black, while 26.6% are white.
Based on data published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 39,052 black babies were killed by abortions in Mississippi between 1995 and 2010. During that same time period, 14,529 white babies were aborted in the Magnolia State.
The total number of abortions between 1995 and 2010 in Mississippi was 54,484. In addition to blacks and whites, that number also includes abortions among Hispanics, “Other” (meaning Asian and Native American), and “Unknown,” as published by the CDC.
The data for 2010 is the latest information from the CDC on reported abortions, as published in their annual Abortion Surveillance reports. The next report, which will cover 2011, is projected to be published in November of this year.
The population of Mississippi for 2012, as estimated by the U.S. Census Bureau, was 2,986,450. Among that group, whites comprised 59.9% or 1,788,883 persons. Blacks comprised 37.4% of the population, which equals 1,116,932 persons. The balance in population was comprised of Hispanics (2.9%), and American Indian, Pacific Islander and Asian (less than 1%).
Whites in Mississippi outnumber blacks by a ratio of 1.6-to-1. Despite that difference, the data show that black abortions comprised, on average, 72% of the total over the last 16 years.
Although black abortions comprised 72% of the total abortions between 1995 and 2010, in some years the percentage was higher. In 2009, for example, the percentage of black babies killed by abortion in Mississippi in relation to the total was 76.8%. In 2007, it was 77.8%; in 2005, 77.2%.

A sexual predator from Plymouth who contacted a 14-year-old just hours after being freed from prison has been jailed after he made her pregnant and bullied her into having an abortion.
Stephen Lobb seduced the victim despite having been jailed for making another under age girl pregnant. He contacted her on the day after he was let out.
When the girl from Plymouth became pregnant he told her to ‘get rid of it’ and then left her for another girl who was only a few months older.
Lobb, aged 20, formerly of Paradise Road, Plymouth, but now living in Carlton Road, Torquay, admitted four offenses of sexual activity with children and was jailed for three and a half years at Exeter Crown Court.
According to the pro-life group, Life Dynamics, Inc. sexual predators using abortion to cover their crimes are not new to the United States.
In 2002, Life Dynamics conducted an undercover investigation in which Life Dynamics called over 800 Planned Parenthood and National Abortion Federation facilities across the nation. The results of this survey were appalling. Even though many of these clinics openly acknowledged to our caller that this situation was illegal and they were required to report it to the state, the overwhelming majority readily agreed to conceal this illegal activity.

Being an atheist or agnostic in America isn’t the easiest of tasks. Likewise being a pro-life college student on a campus where the key age demographic (18-24) accounts for 44 percent of abortions performed isn’t a cake walk either. Yet I remain steadfastly pro-life and agnostic; as one secular person I know has described it, we are a minority within a minority.
So why do I hold both positions? Let me attempt to explain. Because the abortion debate is so extensively peppered with red-herrings and distractions, an interesting way for me to explain myself is to state issues that are NOT the reasons I am pro-life.
I am not pro-life because I am “anti-choice.” I believe in the maximum amount of just choices between consenting adults. I think women and men should have the right to choose to have sex or not. They should be able to choose whom they have sex with and when and how often they have sex. They should be able to access whatever scientific sexual education materials they are interested in and whatever types of birth control they prefer. Men and women who are not ready should be able to choose adoption and whether the adoption is open or closed. Women and men who are struggling as new parents should be able to choose to apply for government assistance for the sake of their new child.
But men and women should not be able to choose to take the life of their child. Not all choices are moral; the choice to own slaves is immoral, the choice to discriminate against minorities is immoral; choice is only the embodiment of freedom when those choices do not harm others.
