Conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh, during his program earlier this week, took the Planned Parenthood abortion business to task for its racial targeting of black Americans.

Limbaugh is correct in his analysis, as new research shows the abortion business targets blacks and Hispanics by putting 79% of its abortion clinics in minority neighborhoods.

New research released by Protecting Black Life (an outreach of Life Issues Institute) reveals that 79% of Planned Parenthood’s surgical abortion facilities are located within walking distance of African American and/or Hispanic/Latino communities.

The group has a new map ( which serves as a powerful visual — illustrating in full color on a website portal integrated with Google Maps functionality just how Planned Parenthood targets minorities. This interactive site gives viewers an up close and personal look at just how close these facilities are to their neighborhoods.



The claim that Planned Parenthood is targeting minorities is not new but the research is new, as it relies on verifiable statistics from 2010 Census Data tracts. Census tracts are a means for measuring demographic data about a geographic area, designed to reflect homogeneous characteristics like race, income level and home values. It focuses only on Planned Parenthood surgical abortion facilities within walking distance of minority neighborhoods, rather than looking at a larger geographical area, such as zip code.

“Minority communities are the #1 targets of Planned Parenthood,” says Rev. Arnold Culbreath, Director of Protecting Black Life and a founding member of the National Black Pro-Life Coalition. “It’s no wonder abortion remains the leading cause of death among African Americans, higher than all other causes combined. Getting this information to as many people as possible is not only critical, it’s a matter of life and death for countless babies and oft times even their mothers.”
