There were more black babies killed by abortion (31,328) in New York City than were born there (24,758) in 2012. Black children who were aborted comprised 42.4 percent of the total number of abortions in New York City.

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.
