Breakdown of New York City's abortions

The Chiaroscuro Foundation was developed a new website,, which has a map which compares the number of live births to abortions by zip code.
The zip code with the highest ratio, 10018, is in the Chelsea-Clinton neighborhood of Manhattan, with a ratio of 67%, followed by rates of 60% in two Jamaica, Queens zip codes and in Manhattan's Greenwich Village, 10012, and Central Harlem-Morningside Heights neighborhoods. ....

Also at the Chiaroscuro Foundation's request, the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene revealed that in 2009 48,627 of the 87,273 abortions in New York City, or 56%, were repeat abortions. 33,401, 38%, were paid for by Medicaid.
