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.
