report says NYC abortion rate is 41 percent; Bloomberg has doubts

Tuesday, February 08, 2011

While Bloomberg was in Albany, I asked him what he thought of the study that found 41 percent of pregnancies in New York City ended in abortion.

"I have no idea if that's an accurate number or not. I just don't know," he said.

The report was announced by a group that included Archbishop Timothy Dolan. Bloomberg aides took a more nuanced view of the figure, according to this New York Times story.

[C]ity health officials and groups that support access to abortion say that behind the 41 percent statistic — nearly twice the national rate — are complex social and legal factors: fewer obstacles to abortion in state law; the absence of mandatory sex education in New York City public schools; the ignorance of people, especially young ones, about where to get affordable birth control; and the ambivalence of young women living in poverty and in unstable relationships about when and whether to have children.

UPDATE: About that methodology. The study says their findings hold up, even when calculated by the method used by the Guttmacher Institute, a reproductive rights organization. A spokesperson for the Guttmacher Institute told me they too come up with a 41% abortion rate for NYC.
