LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - These are the figures presented in a report by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene entitled, "Summary of Vital Statistics 2012 The City of New York, Pregnancy Outcomes." The report was prepared by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, Office of Vital Statistics.

The numbers show Figures presented in the report showed the terminations, or abortions among non-Hispanic black women in New York City for 2012. That same year, there were 24,758 live births for non-Hispanic black women in New York City. There were 6,570 more abortions than live births of black children.

In New York City in 2012, there were 73,815 abortions, which mean the 31,328 black babies aborted comprised 42.4 percent of the total abortions.

For Hispanic women, there were 22,917 abortions in New York City in 2012, which is 31 percent of the total abortions.

The breakdown offered in the report went thusly: Table 1 of the report presents the total number of live births, spontaneous terminations or miscarriages, and induced terminations - or abortions for women in different age brackets between 15 and 49 years of age.

The table also broke data down by race: Hispanic, Asian and Pacific Islander, Non-Hispanic White, Non-Hispanic Black and by borough of residence: Manhattan, Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island.

Black and Hispanic abortions combined, 54,245 babies, is 73 percent of the total abortions in the Big Apple in 2012. The number of non-Hispanic white abortions was 9,704, and the number of Asian and Pacific Islander abortions was 4,493.

The total number of live births in New York City in 2012 for women ages 15-49 was 123,231. That is a rate of 14.8 live births per 1,000 women, which is the lowest rate since 1979, according to the report. In addition, the live birth rate, per 1,000 women has declined 3.9 percent since 2003, when it was a 15.4 rate, according to the report.

There is a bright side. While there were 73,815 abortions in New York City in 2012, the rate of abortions per 1,000 women is down 8.6 percent since 2011, according to the report.

Although the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, or CDC have not published their abortion statistics for 2011 or 2012 yet, they do have data for 2010.
