Planned Parenthood claims that “black lives matter” but that apparently doesn’t apply to black unborn children. Here’s what’s going on in New York, where Planned Parenthood’s headquarters is located:
In 2012, there were more black babies killed by abortion (31,328) in New York City than were born there (24,758), and the black children killed comprised 42.4% of the total number of abortions in the Big Apple, according to a report by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.
There were 6,570 more abortions than live births of black children. In total, there were 73,815 abortions, which means the 31,328 black babies aborted comprised 42.4% of the total abortions.
The ratio of abortions for African-American women remained highest in the city in 2012 at 55.9%, down from nearly 60% in 2009. Asian and Pacific Island women had the lowest ratio at 17.5%.
The targeting of black babies in abortion is not limited to New York City. According to the CDC, a majority of Black or Hispanic babies were aborted in New Jersey (55.9 percent), the District of Columbia (64.8 percent) and Georgia (73.2 percent).
