In the U.S., abortion has taken a terrible toll on the lives of black babies.
Nationally, black women terminate pregnancies at far higher rates than other women. In 2014, 36% of all abortions were performed on black women although they make up just 13% of the female population in the U.S. Abortion deaths of black children far exceed deaths caused by cancer, violent crime, heart disease, AIDS and accidents.
The explanation given for this devastation by abortions of black babies is that black women face pressures caused by racism, poverty and lack of access to health care, which leads to their decision to abort their child. This ignores the fact that women living in low-income areas and also of an ethnic minority, such as Hispanics, have a lower abortion rate than black women. The Hispanic rate of abortion is near to that of other women.
A plausible explanation for the high abortion rate for black women may have to do with marriage. Unmarried women are more likely to experience an unplanned pregnancy, and black women are less likely than their Asian or Hispanic counterparts to marry.
Whatever the reason for the high abortion rate among black women in the U.S., the statistics are devastating. Abortion is the number one killer of blacks in 2014, outnumbering the top 15 leading combined causes of death among blacks, such as homicides, HIV, diabetes, cancer and heart disease. There have been 259,336 deaths (or 711 per day) from induced abortions among black women. It is shocking to think that more blacks have been killed by abortion than by the Klu Klux Klan. Between 1882 and 1968, 3,446 blacks were lynched by the Klu Klux Klan, but today abortion kills more black American babies in less than three days than the Klan killed in 86 years.
It is well known that Planned Parenthood, founded by the racist and eugenicist Margaret Sanger, has established its abortion clinics in the vicinity of low-income black neighbourhoods. By doing so, its billion dollar industry keeps down the black population with death by abortion.
Often unmentioned in this catastrophic loss of black babies by abortion is a further problem, that abortion significantly raises a woman’s risk of premature delivery in subsequent pregnancies.
Black American women have a rate of premature births that is over four times that of non-black women. Premature birth increases a baby’s risk of cerebral palsy, autism, deafness, blindness, respiratory distress, epilepsy, mental retardation, gastro-intestinal injury and serious infections. In short, even if a black baby escapes abortion, his/her chances of health complications are significantly increased if the mother has had a prior abortion(s).
One does not have to be a believer in conspiracies to consider the possibility that the high incidence of abortion in black communities may be taking place in order to keep the black community smaller and less powerful. This reflects the racist and genocidal mindset advanced by organizations such as government and philanthropy funded Planned Parenthood.
This killing of black babies, as well, has ominous implications down the road. The black fertility rate is 1.9 – well below the replacement rate of 2.1. Within a few decades black Americans may well be an endangered species. Margaret Sanger would be pleased.
