"Low-income women, denied access to contraception, are having more unwanted pregnancies – four times as many as those for higher income women. And almost half of all unwanted pregnancies end in abortions."
The former first (idiot) lady didn’t explain, however, why – in places like New York City, where high school nurses’ offices distribute candy-flavored condoms – the abortion rate continues to soar.
In January, for instance, the New York Daily News reported:
"For every 100 babies born in New York City, women had 74 abortions in 2004, according to newly released figures that reaffirm the city as the abortion capital of the country … That means 40 out of 100 pregnancies in the city ended in a planned abortion – almost double the national average of 24 of 100 pregnancies in 2002."
