New data released by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene shows that more than 50% of black women in NYC ab0rted their pregnancies in 2012. There were also statistics that were put out by the Bureau of Vital Statistics that showed that black women not only had the highest ab0rtion rate of any other race but they also had more pregnancies. They had more miscarriages as well. The report the data was published in is called the Summary of Vital Statistics 2012, The City of New York.

The statistics also showed that out of every 1,000 black women, 115.7 were pregnant, and out of those pregnancies 31,328 were ab0rted in the year 2012. Also from that number was a reported 3,446 miscarriages. There were only 24,758 babies that were actually carried to full term and birthed.

During the births, black women had the highest number of premature births. They had the highest number of low birth weights, the most C-sections, and were also the most overweight of any other race’s mothers. Many did not take care of their pregnancies as early as they should have and were more likely to either not get prenatal care at all or start it as late as the third trimester.

Hispanic women came in second for the highest number of ab0rt!ons but they also had 10,000 more live births than black woman and had fewer pregnancies. There were 22,917 Hispanic babies that were reported as being ab0rted and 36,642 were born alive.

White women only had 76.2 pregnancies per 1,000 women but they also had the lowest number of ab0rt!ons with 9,704 pregnancies terminated. They had the highest number of live births as well with 39,112 babies born.

  1. I will never say abortion is a good thing, but we:(black-women) are the ones who carry the seeds in our wombs, go through 9 months of sickness and agony, our body’s go about a great change (DISFIGUREMENT), no appreciation whatsoever from our black men, most don’t even want their own seeds, most call us out of our names (UGLY FAT BLACK BYTCHES ETC), its just [email protected] endless cruelty from our own men, and its gotten worse.
    This pitiful world don’t even believe we deserve a fare life, blessed prosperity, and a life without baring children to raise on our own without a black man in the home. If I got pregnant right now in this day and age, I would not keep the baby, so thank God my womb does not produce anymore.
    I don’t want my daughters raising babies with no (LOVING FATHERS & HUSBANDS) in their life til death do they part. If this behavior kills off the black race then oh-well because the negative abuse against black women needs to stop. We can always procreate with other races and its happening everyday at random.
    While our black brothers are laying black women to roost, other races are picking them up 24-7, faster then the black man can blink his eyes.
    So every time a black man speak-out something negative about a sister just remember some non-racist white brother got the woman and gone down happy street to a beautiful life which is more then black men are even willing to give the black women.

    Tongue lashing words have power,(LIFE & DEATH IS IN THE POWER OF THE TONGUE), so all you brother who love throwing “DEADLY WORDS” around about black women, should always remember this: *You killed off your ownself, not the white man… YOU DID IT TO YOUR [email protected] SELF…

    *JODY’S GOT YO GIRL AND GONE…WINK!

    Note: There are some good black men out there, but the majority rules, open up your eyes, black women are no-longer losing out, their waking up to the reality the black man has set before them… Peace

    • Miss Redbone, have some black man called you an ugly fat bitch and treated you cruel, and I have a wonderful black man in my life who is very much in love with me and our children, and I returns his love. I have never done anything to merit him calling me such a name and he has never called me that or any other foul name. I have seven sisters and seven brother’s-in-Laws and they treat my sisters and me just an my husband treats me. you say the majority of black men are no good, where have you been looking for them?, in prisons, homeless shelters or street corners? because I know that most black men that I come into contact with are loving, kind and treats their women and children well. you sound angry at black men maybe because of the way one treated you?, have you ever given thought that you could be the problem, and that you instills this behavior, of gives reason for it to occur. maybe if you respected your black man more and show him more love, then he would return the same to you, I and many if not most black women loves our black men. do not compare us to yourself, own up to your own negative beliefs, do not include us positive black women in your nonsense because you feel a need for validation od your sick attitude. go ahead and find and procreate with a white man, I and sure most black men and most black women would consider that’s good riddance of you, get help Redbone

    • Redbone I am a married Black man with 4 children 2 that me and my wife is putting through college and 2 at home. I resent the way you classify the black man because you have had a bad experience with one, but not all. I associate with hundreds of black men and women, and do not find any that I can compare to your view of a Black man. most women do not share your opinion, my wife and sister-in-law is sitting right here shaking there heads in pity for you. one of them just said ” no wonder she can’t find a decent black man, listen to that attitude” I agree if I was single in search of a black woman, I would pass you over for a more positive Black woman. not an emotional self-hating one such as your self. because you sound like the type that show a man so much hate that he would probably call you outside of your name because of the way you makes him feel, and I am sure he would not stay around that long, because you are empty and without love to give. How do you expect to receive what you are not giving in return. If you go to a White man with that attitude the result will be the same. you need to do a lot of work on yourself, and it is a good thing that you can’t have children anymore, because you are unable to love them as you states,that if you were pregnant you would abort the child. just reading your writing, I don’t believe that other races are picking you up 24-7 after the black man has left you, faster than the black man can blink his eye, because of the way you are . you wouldn’t be able to keep a man long, no matter what race he is. I feel sorry for you

  2. Redbone I do not understand your logic, you should not take your personal experiences that you had with a black man and relate it to all the other women of color. I am sure that all Black men interact with the black woman as you describe. I know the the great number of black men love and respect their women and their children. and a very small amount of black women feel as you do, and those that do probable had a bad personal experience with a black man. did you ever pay attention to the many black women that are in loving supportive relationships with their black man and wonder what they are doing different than you. and do you really believe that men of other races are perfect mates. have you ever noticed the high divorce rate of married white couples, the violence that they inflict upon their mates. and the heartache that is brought about because of their cheating of their mates often with a co-worker or the wife of a close friend or relative. the article above received its data from surveys, that didn’t include each and everyone, and should not be used to judge those that were not part of the survey. redbone have you even gave this a thought. and who are to to imply that a white man will take better care of a Black woman that a Black man, have one taken you and treated you better. this may have occurred in certain situation, and it had nothing to do with race, but with the individuals involved, just as black men have also married white women and they both lives a happy life. Redbone didn’t you realize that the shoe could also fit the other foot. do you think that these black men are choosing white women because of the negative responses from black women such as yourself, give some thought to what you stated above off of the top of your head. I am a black man an enjoy a loving relationship with my Black wife. I attend gathering with other black couples and witness the happiness that is shared between them. Redbone did you ever wonder why you are unable to have the same type of relationship with a black man? or were you just ignorant of the fact that it was indeed possible to have this type of relationship. If you had taken notes from the Black women who have loving relationships with their Black men, you would realize what you are doing wrong. and with that negative opinion of yours, you will never be able to enjoy such a relationship. Few back men would find the ability to be in a loving relationship with you because of that attitude that affected your better judgement, as for that foolish statement Jody’s got you girl and gone and that the majority of black men are no good. and that black women are waking up and realizing this, as I am writing this there about a dozen Black women reviewing this. and a most of them states that they would appreciate it if you would stop comparing them to you, and quite a few of them believe that you are disillusioned and possibly mental unstable But I pity you and hope that you wake up and learn to love yourself.

    • @Aaron J, Ron Real, Magee, & whomever else…

      Wow!! LMBO!!! Redbone hit a nerve…

      The truth hurts doesn’t it, but its a good thing I have everybody’s attention. You are all entitled to your own opinions, but facts are facts and rather you agree with me or not these events are happening 24-7.
      I will say this much: I work with a lot of women different age groups, I’ve learned how to listen and observe, and I know how to focus and hear from the heart on both sides of the coin.
      Redbone have no lack & no need, so it doesn’t really matter what opinionated conclusions you all have come to concerning Redbone because its just you lashing out in your “OPINIONS”, but you all need to wake-up and smell the coffee because this world does not revolve around your personal life and your opinions.
      Get your behinds out there in our black community open up a doorway and bring some down-trodden black-women into a “healing circle” and allow them to begin to tell their stories instead of jumping to conclusions thinking you have all the [email protected] answers just because your world is working for you.
      All of you sound so [email protected] selfish its a shame… I’m on these blogs listening to black-men put down black-women down 24-7, but every time a sister step-out and speak the truth heads start rolling off the necks. Your so caught up into your own world your blind and can’t even see what’s really going down in-front of you.

      This article is about Abortions, just because you don’t like or agree with what I said doesn’t mean its not happening and it doesn’t mean that your opinions will stop it from happening.
      While you all sat your donkey’s in your easy chairs watching TV with rose-colored-glasses on life is happening, so what the h*ll do any of you have to contribute???

      Let Redbone ask you all this question: DO ANY OF YOU EVEN TAKE TIME OUT TO FEED THE HOMELESS??? or do you just continue to drive by them???

      Redbone ain’t scared to bring it, so call it what you will while living in your own dying race with blinders on. I’m out here in the trenches “WHAT ABOUT YOU ALL”…

      Again: The truth hurts doesn’t it…

      PS: To the brothers… I have 3 brothers that I grew up with, all married to black women wth black babies, and I raised 2 sons / black-men, never came from a broken home, and I’m a strong proud black-women. One day soon you will all see my face, so get over yourselves.

      *LEARN HOW TO READ WITH A FOCUS / TAKE OFF THE BLINDERS & START SEEING WHAT GOD WANTS YOU TO SEE BY THE SPIRIT AND NOT BY THE ACCOUNTABILITY OF YOUR WRETCHED FLESH…

    • @Aaron…

      LMBO!! I do hear you, and I also hear your spirit.

      I wasn’t raised in a broken home, my mom and dad loved each other dearly, my brothers love their wives and their children, so I’m not clueless at all.
      My X-husband of 16yrs loved me, but he was a broken man behind alcohol & crack, never called me out of my name. I’ve seen much since I was a little girl, and not much has changed just more “HIDDEN”, but now God is exposing everything on a whole other level and these issues with-in our black community is happening, ready or not here I come, your arms are too short to box with God, and the God I serve is not RELIGIOUS, but if you have blinders on you’ll never see him coming.
      Don’t get angry, allow yourself to become informed… Get out there black-man and find room outside of your personal agenda, open up a door in your home or at a community center and open up a mentoring circle for black-women, and allow them to pour out their stories from the heart without judging them harshly because you’ve allow your flesh to become involved by their personal tragedy’s. If your a good black-man like you say you are, then their are hurting black-women that need to hear it. I dare any of you to stop talking and go get physically involved. Its not hard to change a heart, especially if your own heart is not harden.. Matthew 13:10-17

  3. Changes come through “ACTION” not yacking & money can’t change everything. I say: “BRING THE MOUNTAIN TO MUHAMMAD” so to speak… instead of women mentoring women lets go (HEAD-UP), just come like Jesus would with a humble heart to listen so true healing can began in our communities. Stop taking your blessing for granite. The word of God says: We are all “APART OF (ONE) BODY”, if a fingerhurts the whole body is affected… What other solutions have anybody else came up with besides giving a [email protected] comment on these blogs??? Is there at least one of you who can bite the bullet / aka cast down your pride and allow the spirit of humility to come forth beating the devil at his own game… Redbone could bring home the truth all day but who will move on it…

    WHAT’S THAT I HEAR!!!!! SILENCE IN THE ROOM…
    is

  4. We all have a right to our opinions and before anyone criticizes commenters, let’s try to depict what is really going on. Yes, men (RATHER MALES, BECAUSE NOT ALL MALES ARE MEN) have done wrong by neglecting to maintain stability in the homes, they are not the only ones at fault. Women have done a great disservice to themselves and have contributed vastly to the destruction of the family. I can only say that the negative propaganda about Black women has screwed the mindset of many folks, and the media does not help. But in reality all of you have to do is look at your own neighborhoods, if Black women live, and see what negative characters as well as positive characters exist.

    Look at the route many women are forced to take, in order to raise their children. No one is speaking about the total disrespect for authority. No one is denying the truth that many of these young girls are having babies out of wedlock. And the ignorance does exist, that the abortion clinics are promoted more in the black and hispanic communities than anywhere else.

    I see a world where more people of color exist and thus for many are mixing with Blacks and hispanics, and that is okay because the world is a changing. But women are not sitting down with their daughters explaining to them that abortion should not be used as birth control. That is genocide. Not only does abortions destroy the future of family life and the destruction of a so called race, but it rips the very fibers of your internal life force. Abortions are hideous and can cause future problems for women. Someone needs to speak to the ladies about restraint, respect for your body, virtue and focusing on other means of birth control. No we will not only make the men responsible, we must take account for our own actions, as we are the ones carrying the babies. I personally feel that too much attention is focused on making women sex objects, and this is a reason why many of our young girls are choosing sex over sensibility. There are so few fathers promoted in the homes via media and social institutions, as if men do not exist. There are fathers out that are raising their children to be great, they just do not get the attention that deadbeats get. PLEASE READ DEADBEAT: TAKE CARE OF YOUR DAMN KIDS http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/darlenelewis and understand what the ramifications are in regards to child support enforcement, dna, genetics and the many women that are raising kids alone. WOMEN, YOU DO HAVE A CHOICE, but at the end of the day these Planned Parenthood clinics are pushing more ABORTIONS than safe sex or abstinence. SEXUAL education begins at home. But if the parents are not there then the tv and the computers are doing a disservice because they promote sexual freedom in all forms of advertisement, videos and movies. The choice is yours to decide what your child will be exposed to, and many parents have dropped the ball on raising their kids and the Foster care agencies are not monitoring what really goes on so girls are caught up and guys are caught up because they are seeking love in all the wrong places. Education, spiritual and psychosocial remedies can be the answer. If only people cared to ask the questions

    • Well said Ms Lewis…

      I thank God my daughters don’t have babies, and they don’t use abortion clinics for birth-control, I raised them with morales and values at a young age with their father in the home, even though he was a broken man he was there for the better part.
      I work with black women of all ages. Abortions, popping out babies out of wed-lock, deadbeat fathers, etc is ugly and harsh, but even so its just the tip of the ice-burgh, even those issues don’t even began to address the real issues deep with-in which open doorways for abortions, babies out of wed-lock and deadbeat fathers.
      Many of the women I work with have been devalued starting at early childhood, rape, molestation, incest, (the worst part it seems: verbally beat-down by words) its just endless.
      When I first started my group I was in awe of the low-selfesteem issues with-in our black-women, many were so fearful of just openning up to pour out the truth. Yes I have read comments from positive black-men but the negative majority still rules coming from our black-men concerning our black-women and they have no idea whatsoever of what’s really going on “DEEP” in the minds & hearts of our black-women, and some black-women either they don’t know, or they have turned a death-ear, or their blocking out because they don’t want to identify due to their own personal deep hidden issues.
      What I’m getting at is this: Our women need a one on one with our good black-men sitting in on the “healing sessions / rap sessions”…
      Healing starts by listening from the heart & spirit, “Bring The Mountains To Mahumad / or Bring Mahumad To The Mountains”… Talk is cheap!!!!
