Are Abortion Clinics Taking Aim at African-Americans and Their Babies ?

Planned parenthood, Black Genocide Troubling statistics reveal that African-Americans make up the majority of Americans who get abortions and now some groups believe this is evidence of “Black genocide.”

Abortion clinics like Planned Parenthood have had a long history of targeting African-American and low-income neighborhoods.

African-Americans are responsible for nearly one-third of all abortions in the country.

According to the 2010 Abortion Surveillance report by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Black women obtained roughly 25 percent of all abortions since Roe v. Wade in 1973.

Reports also reveal that abortion clinics tend to open in minority communities. reports that about 80 percent of all abortion clinics are in communities that are dominated by minority residents.

Although a correlation has not been proven, the statistics alone are certainly enough to raise some eyebrows and major concerns, especially since Planned Parenthood’s founder had a history of racism.

Back in the 1930s, reports surfaced that Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger made a slew of racist and discriminatory statements.

“Colored people are like human weeds and are to be exterminated,” she once reportedly said.

Minorities make up majority of abortion stats Some people in the African-American community have refused to sit back and watch what they refer to as “Black genocide.” 

Black People Against Abortion (BPAA), a pro-life group that is pushing to educate and reach out to the African-American community about abortions, makes it clear that someone has to step in to make a difference or the number of abortions could continue to rise.

“If someone’s going to cry out, we need to cry out – for our children, for all children – but specifically, there needs to be more people of color in the fight to cry out for life,” said Dr. Ashley Harrell, a BPAA advocate.

The BPAA is described as a “grassroots morality movement boldly declaring a message of hope and encouragement with Black men and women to value life, keep their babies, reject abortion and stop the genocide that threatens the Black race.”

Harrell said the organization has a keen focus on the “young generation,” as ultimately they will be making decisions on whether to keep their babies or opt for abortions.

Harrell says it is key that the upcoming generation realize they can “glorify God” with their children and be great parents.

According to a 2010 survey from the Alan Guttmacher Institute, the three most common reasons women gave for opting for an abortion were not wanting a child to interfere with work, school and other responsibilities; fear they could not afford a child at the time; and not wanting to be a single parent.

  1. FACTS: Since 1973, legal abortion has killed more African Americans than AIDS, Cancer, Diabetes, heart disease, and violent crimes combined. Every week more blacks die in American clinics than were killed in the entire Vietnam War. The largest chain of abortion clinics in the US is operated by Planned Parenthood!
    Not my words, but definitely the TRUTH:

  2. Bass Reeves I get what you'r trying to tell Tyrone Thomas but you are dismissing an very important very valid point.. YOU HAVE THE CHOICE TO SHOW UP AND GET AN ABORTION OR NOT.. YOU HAVE THE CHOICE TO PROTECT YOURSELF AND PREVENT A PREGNANCY white people don't have that kind of control over my mind like that.. they cant make me or anyone have an abortion..I am up on Margaret Stanger and planned parenthood's dark beginnings..and we need to educate ourselves on these people and who is behind certain agendas..they can be in the neighborhood all they want but if you dont patronize then what? and stop acting as if others have so much control over our minds as if we are children…I see that as weakness…and I see weakness alllll over the place..I know that a system that has psychologically broken so many can't be changed overnight but try…instead of knocking the guy who is saying it like it is…you can't make women have abortions if they don't want to, and when it is banned in places they still find a way or worse kill it once it is out..
