At times it seems that some UN policy makers want the world to follow the US when it comes to abortion. This is what it would look like. Forty-one per cent of all pregnancies in New York City end in abortion. The grim statistic has activated new pro-life initiatives in the metropolis.
Last week, religious leaders called for a unified effort to lower the number of abortions in the city. Rabbi Chaim Dovid Zwiebel of Agudath Israel of America challenged, 'We've been hearing for many years from pro-choice supporters that abortion should be safe, legal and rare. If that's the goal, we've clearly, abysmally failed, especially here in New York City.'
