The pro-life movement has pointed out for years that the abortion industry, including the Planned Parenthood abortion business, targets black women and Hispanics. The way in which it targets black women in more apparent today after a news report shows almost three-fourths of abortions in Mississippi, where a majority of residents are white, are done on black babies.

According to a Life Issues Institute study, 79 percent of Planned Parenthood abortion centers are located in minority neighborhoods.

“But to the contrary, in contemporary America, the rate of pregnancy among black women is almost three times as high as it is for white women and, though they make up less than 13% of the female population, black women have about 37% of the abortions,” the researchers wrote.

This month is Black History Month, a time when we recognize great men and women who helped to shape our nation. From inventors like George Washington Carver to civil rights leaders like Martin Luther King Jr. and Rosa Parks, they have done so much to create a culture that respects and values all human beings. But the work is not done. Quietly, abortion centers are eroding those values.

From the report at CNS News:

Although whites outnumber blacks in Mississippi by nearly 2-to-1, 71.67% of the babies aborted in Mississippi are black, while 26.6% are white.

Based on data published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 39,052 black babies were killed by abortions in Mississippi between 1995 and 2010.  During that same time period, 14,529 white babies were aborted in the Magnolia State.



The total number of abortions between 1995 and 2010 in Mississippi was 54,484. In addition to blacks and whites, that number also includes abortions among Hispanics, “Other” (meaning Asian and Native American), and “Unknown,” as published by the CDC.

The data for 2010 is the latest information from the CDC on reported abortions, as published in their annual Abortion Surveillance reports. The next report, which will cover 2011, is projected to be published in November of this year.

The population of Mississippi for 2012, as estimated by the U.S. Census Bureau, was 2,986,450.  Among that group, whites comprised 59.9% or 1,788,883 persons.  Blacks comprised 37.4% of the population, which equals 1,116,932 persons.  The balance in population was comprised of Hispanics (2.9%), and American Indian, Pacific Islander and Asian (less than 1%).
