In New York City, the abortion capital of the country

The decline in the number of abortions performed in the United States has taken root in the abortion capital of the United States. There were nearly 7,000 fewer abortions performed in New York City in 2012 than the previous year, according to statistics just released by the city's Bureau of Vital Statistics, reports LifeSiteNews.

There were 73,815 abortions in 2012, the most recent year for which data are available. That's down from 80,485 in 2011.

The abortion rate dropped precipitously. In 2011, the abortion rate was 42.2 per 1,000 women aged 15-49. In 2012, the rate was 33.4.

Overall, the report states that the rate of “induced terminations,” that is abortion-on-demand, has decreased 19 percent since 2003. “Nearly the entire decline has occurred in the past five years,” it adds.

“I have never seen such a dramatic improvement,” Chris Slattery, president of Expectant Mother Care/EMC Frontline Pregnancy Centers, told

The numbers confirm a national trend. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported last December that abortions had declined from 2009 to 2010. Earlier this month, the Guttmacher Institute announced that there were fewer abortions in 2011 than at any time since Roe v. Wade.

Slattery told LifeSiteNews the New York City report from 2012 “is pointing to an unprecedented decline nationally.” The Big Apple, he noted, “is the abortion capital of America,” the city with the highest number and rate of abortions.

The CDC report specifically noted that pro-life laws and the lack of abortion providers decrease the number of abortions. Both reports surveyed the national abortion rate before the largest number of abortion restrictions in U.S. history began in 2011-12.
