According to a recent report by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene more black babies are aborted then are actually born in New York City. 31,328 were aborted in New York City in the year 2012 while only 24,758 were born. These numbers are staggering. To think that more abortions are occurring on a specific race then live births is not only heartbreaking but makes one wonder if the act of abortion could be racially motivated.
We know that Planned Parenthood’s founder Margaret Sanger was a racist, who once said, “We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population…” We also know that most abortion facilities are located in black and minority neighborhoods. Are these strategically placed to fulfill Margaret Sanger’s wishes? I don’t know. But what we do know is that abortion kills people, and its killing a higher percentage of black and minority babies than it is white.
The report is entitled, Summary of Vital Statistics 2012 The City of New York, Pregnancy Outcomes, and was prepared by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, Office of Vital Statistics and can be found here.
