(CNSNews.com)  -- The latest abortion surveillance report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which was published on Friday but covers the year 2012,  shows that in New York City 76.4% of the abortions reported by race were of black and Hispanic babies.

The data from the CDC show there were 699,202 abortions reported to the CDC in 2012 from 47 states and the District of Columbia. (California, Maryland, and New Hampshire did not report their abortion numbers to the CDC.)

The CDC also got numbers from New York City broken down by race: white, black, Hispanic, and other.

In total, there were 70,997 abortions in New York City in 2012. Among those abortions, 31,328 were black babies (44.1%); 22,917 were Hispanic babies (32.3%). 

That equals 54,245 abortions, or 76.4% of the total abortions in New York City.

Also, there were 9,704 white babies aborted (13.7%), and 7,048 “Other” babies aborted (9.9%) in New York City in 2012 – the "Other" children were Asian, Native American, or of “unknown” ethnicity.

Blacks make up 25.5% of the population in New York City, according to the Census Bureau, and Hispanics comprise 28.6% of the population. Yet Hispanics and blacks equal 76.4% of the abortions in New York City.
