The Truth about Abortion and Race

Minority populations and communities are under attack.  Planned Parenthood has strategically placed over 78% of their centers in or around minority communities.  When abortion statistics are analyzed, it becomes apparent that this strategy has worked.  Abortion is much more rampant among minority populations than among the Caucasian population. 

Planned Parenthood has a pattern of placing their abortion mills around cities that have a higher African American population percentage than the entire state.  For example, in Iowa, the African American population is 2.1%.  There is a Planned Parenthood center in Des Moines, Iowa that is surrounded by a one-mile radius where the percentage of African Americans increases to 26.5%. 

This is not an isolated incident: statistics show that there seems to be a blueprint for Planned Parenthood’s expansion.  Arizona, Connecticut, Maryland, Michigan, New York, Washington, and Utah all have Planned Parenthood facilities in the center of a concentration of African American population that is many times greater than the city or state average.

This agenda should not come as a surprise to those familiar with the eugenic views of Planned Parenthood’s founder, Margaret Sanger.  Sanger once wrote in a 1939 letter, “We do not want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population.”  While it is entirely possible that she meant she did not want the African American population to wrongly assume she was out to eliminate them, there is the real chance that she wanted to accomplish this through birth control and sterilization in secrecy.  Sanger often preached her views of social purification across the globe.  While the racial intent of Sanger is still being debated, there is no questioning that abortion is targeting and taking the life of minority babies at an alarming rate. 

The most current U.S. Census data on race shows that African Americans make up 12.3% of the female population in America, and yet the 2006 CDC report stated that African American women had 36.4% of all abortions.  It is not just the African American community that is under attack.  Hispanic women make up 12.5% of the female population in America, and the 2006 CDC report stated that Hispanic women had 20.1% of total abortions.  These numbers are truly shocking when compared to the statistic that non-Hispanic, white women make up 69% of the American female population but only account for 36.1% of abortions that were committed in 2006.  The data reveals the fact that minority women are almost three times more likely to have an abortion than white women. 

Pro-Life activists and organizations must unite to spread the truth behind Planned Parenthood’s expansion.  Minority communities need to be made aware that Planned Parenthood’s business strategy is devastating their culture.  Whether intentional or not, there is no denying the data that minority women are being led by Planned Parenthood to abortion at an unprecedented rate.  A perfect example is the fact that a minority neighborhood in Houston now is home to the largest Planned Parenthood in the western hemisphere.  Please continue to share the news about Planned Parenthood, abortion, and the impact among minority communities.
