Anyone else find this disturbing?

"It's exciting," crowed Deputy Health Commissioner Lorna Thorpe. "We're doing well in New York."

A bump of nearly 3,000 births spurred New York's first baby boom since 1988: Some 125,506 children were born here in 2006, up from 122,725 the year before.

It's not clear what's behind the baby boom, but birth spikes are often associated with prosperity, Thorpe said. Still, the city's birth rate rose by 2.3%, less than the national increase of 3%.

Some 40% of all pregnancies in New York were terminated, the report said.


City women living longer, better & having babies

4 in 10 pregnancies ending in abortion doesn't sound like prosperity. But we aren't supposed to talk about such things and instead pretend it's all hunky dory...

Disgusting. Roe -vs- Wade needs to be retracted, except in extreme situations like rape.

People also need to get their hormones in check and quit behaving like four-legged animals.

And if they can't, then pen 'em up in pounds, after they're neutered.

Why dont you people move someplace where your values are appreciated rather than stay in a democratic borough in a democratic city?

The babies are known as 'anchor babies.'

A handful gives entire villages from Mexico an anchor to claim US citizenship.

One of the main reasons that crime is down. A small fraction of society makes a large portion of crime.

If they are never born, no crime.

Running a semi-criminal abortion clinic in Corona or Jamaica would be a profitable business I guess...

Roe Vs Wade be retracted? So instead all those aborted pregnancies can become children whom the majority of which are probably from illegal immigrants? Then they can clog up our already crowded schools? And our already clogged up emergency rooms? No thank you. As mean as this sounds, I would rather my tax money go to pay a few hundred dollars for each abortion than thousands of dollars for each child's education and healthcare etc.

Even if we take out the number of illegals who've had abortions, I'm sure the majority of the other abortions are being done by poor and/or uneducated women who would no doubt go on welfare to support the baby. No way would I ever support Roe Vs Wade being retracted!

Don't forget Jackson Heights. You could open one up right next to those "Plastic Surgery" offices on Roosevelt.

If they were practicing "safe sex" then they're would be very few unwanted pregnancies.

If individuals were responsible and practicing 'safe sex' there would be very few unwanted pregnancies. Too much to expect?

lots of native-born, Caucasian chicks get abortions, too, after being sent over sea to some discreet doc in Vienna.

Roe being retracted would no absolutely nothing for the abortions in this city or this state. It might do something in, say, South Dakota, but in NY and NYC, abortion would be protected.

40% seems high, but it's just a number. We don't know how many are multiple pregnancies, how many are a result of drug abusers, how many are in the first 9 weeks, how many were recommended by doctors because of irregularities.

I'd be interested to see how the figures in context.

I'm all for abortions as long as we can give welfare recipients and all other parasites in our society a retro active abortion. Hey, if were gonna keep mass murder legal we might as well just go with it and clean up this city.

Abortion is the intentional and direct killing of an innocent human being, and therefore it is a form of homicide.

The unborn child is always an innocent party, and no law may permit the taking of his life. Even when a child is conceived through rape or incest, the fault is not the child’s, who should not suffer death for others’ sins.

May God have mercy on the souls of these butchers.

Now here's a representative of this "democratic" Borough in the "democratic" city, who wants no dissent or differing opinions. Apparently, if you don't agree with his "democrat", get the hell out of here!

Anonymous needs the Commissar to tell him/her what opinions to support. And, wants all of us to follow suit. Hut, two, three, four; Hut, Hut Hut! Forward --- March! Lift those jackboots higher; like you're kicking ass!

There is no conflict between repealing Roe v Wade and even criminalizing abortion (it IS homicide - and it's premeditated), and eliminating the illegal alien invasion and theft of services for which no alien paid.

Vigorously - no ferociously - enforce laws forbidding the hiring of illegal aliens; deport any illegal found working.

Call abortion what it is - infanticide - and deal with the crime.

Where's the conflict?

georgetheatheist said...

Taxpayer sez abortion is infanticide. Really? Where's the "infant"? ie. "the legal person"? My challenge for expectant parents who will give birth after April 15: write off your fetus as a dependant for 2007. You legally exist when you are born ("wah-wah-wah") not when conceived ("ooo-ooo-ooo").

Gabeesh?

Actually, Scott Peterson was convicted of the murders of both his wife and unborn son, who, though not legal for tax purposes, was legal for prosecution purposes.

75% of conceptions end in SPONTANEOUS abortion. That means the body ends the pregnancy by itself and the embryo passes unnoticed into your toilets at home, people. I suppose that's reckless endangerment? Criminal negligence?

Queens Crapper said...

The reproductive system and the digestive system are not connected to each other, so your toilet scenario is not plausible. Also, this article mentioned intentional termination of pregnancy. Not miscarriages. Actually, miscarriages is a statistic that you'd think would be important. Maybe they went up because of how we are polluting our environment and our bodies.

Uhh, I've never heard of an illegal immigrant getting an abortion. Just watch the cavalcade of Mexican mamas and their babies (who look like they were born one right after the other) next time you're on Roosevelt Ave.

Brilliant counter-argument!

Scott Peterson's son's body washed up on the eastern SF Bay shore with an umbilical chord wrapped around his neck - one day prior to the surfacing of Laci Petersen's headless torso. Did Laci, while missing, give birth to the gestating fetus?

Vas you dere Sharly?
