Linda Greenhouse in the New York Times claimed on Thursday that "there has been a lot of nutty talk about abortion lately," castigating Ruben Diaz for his remarks highlighting the racial disparity in the abortion rate in New York City, where 41% of all pregnancies end in abortion. The National Review Online has published Diaz's response.
"New York City’s Department of Vital Statistics show that out of every 100 pregnancies, 41 babies are aborted. Forty-nine percent of Hispanic babies are aborted, and 59.8 percent of Black babies are aborted....It’s hard to imagine how anyone would consider me or any pro-lifer “nutty” for stating what these statistics show: Abortion in New York City IS racial genocide."
