Most New York abortions are repeat procedures

Catholic World News - September 09, 2011

In a thorough study of abortion statistics in New York City, the Chiaroscuro Foundation has found that more than half are obtained by women who have had at least one prior abortion, and more than one-third are financed by Medicaid.

The Chiaroscuro Foundation is dedicated to reducing the rate of abortion in New York. Today 41% of the recorded pregnancies in the city end in abortion: a rate nearly double the national average.

    Is this the fruition of what the welfare society has done for the poor? Some help! What judgment we face!
