Abortion and New York City

Michael Bloomberg, the Republican mayor of New York City, is as about as extreme and coercive in his promotion of abortion as they come. So it is little surprise that the Big Apple is the Big Appalling when it comes to killing preborn children. Indeed, the city has the highest rates of abortion in the nation.

But this article, pointed out to me by Quint Coppi, shows that Bloomberg is just the latest in what is a long, sordid history of abortion enthusiasts in NYC. Yes, the politicians bear a heavy responsibility for this callous disregard for human life in New York, but so do the press, the Broadway glitterati, business leaders...and the people.

A spiritual conversion -- one that is deep, thorough, and ongoing -- is desperately needed here.
