We received the following in an email from Chris Slattery of Expectant Mother Care (EMC).
Nearly 2800 Fewer Abortions in Abortion Capital Last Year.
According to the just released Summary of Vital Statistics for 2005 of the NYC Department of Health, abortions very happily decreased by 3% compared to 2004.
There were close to 89,000 babies killed last year, a staggering amount of death, but at least it is headed in the right direction!
Thanks belong to those who have been a part of the EMC team last year who helped us prevent close to 1,500 near certain abortions, a significant part ofthe decline, we believe.
