More bad news from Detroit....

Nearly one-third of all pregnancies in the city of Detroit end in abortion, a statistic public health officials blame on rising poverty and dwindling access to affordable contraception.
Of an estimated 18,360 pregnancies among Detroit residents in 2012, the most recent year for which data are available, 5,693 ended in abortion, or 31 percent.

During that same year, an estimated 160,219 pregnancies were reported in Michigan, with 22,699 abortions.
That translates into a Detroit abortion rate ó the number of abortions by population, including women who werenít pregnant that year ó of 37.9 per 1,000 women aged 15-44. Thatís up from 27.5 per 1,000 women in 2001.

Itís a staggering three times greater than Michiganís statewide rate, which declined from 12.6 abortions per 1,000 women during child-bearing years, to 11 per 1,000, over the same period.

"Itís another public health challenge for Detroit, which is the most dangerous city in America to be a child, according to a Detroit News study. Published in January, the study found that the death rate for children 18 and younger is higher in Detroit than in any U.S. city its size or larger. The highest number of deaths occur in the first year, most related to premature birth. Homicide is the second greatest cause of child deaths in the city."

Our culture has gone awry while there are some profiting from the decay.

These charlatans who are fueling our moral demise profit from the poor and ignorant while talking about a woman's "right" vs. the woman's "responsibility".

Abortion has become a means of birth control in Detroit. That is irresponsible, lazy and just plain wrong.
