Shocking new government statistics show that there are more than four times as many late-term unborn victims of abortion in New York City as victims of homicide.
CNS News reported on the comparison earlier this week in response to mainstream news outlets’ claims that late-term abortions are “rare.”
The comparison is based on statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and the New York Police Department.
The latest CDC report on abortion provides the numbers for 2015. In New York City, there were 1,485 abortions at or after 21 weeks gestation that year. In contrast, the NYPD and the Federal Bureau of Investigation reported 352 victims of “murder and non-negligent manslaughter” in New York City in 2015.
That equates to 4.1 late-term unborn victims of abortion and .96 victims of homicide per day in the city, according to the report.
