ALBANY, New York, April 6, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – New York’s vital statistics reportfor 2014, released Monday, revealed yet another drop in abortion for New York State. The data reveals that the number of abortions statewide hit an all-time low since abortion was legalized in 1970. In the last seven years (2008 to 2014) the number of abortions dropped 21% including a one-point drop in 2014.

Monroe County continues to lead the way in the abortion trend reversal with a 5 percent reduction in just one year, bucking the upstate trend where abortion increased 5.7 percent overall. Monroe County is the only county with a consecutive seven-year reduction, with abortion falling sharply by 42 percent.

“It is our estimation that NY is the abortion bellwether for the U.S.,” Jim Harden, president and CEO of Compassionate Care Pregnancy Services, said in a statement. “So this is good news for everyone.”

“We think that the overall seven year city and state reductions represents the profit margin of the abortion biz,” he explained.  “In their fight to maintain their (abortion) monopoly…we should start to see increased legislative pressure and PR attacks.”
