Prominent U.S. Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi is an ardent abortion supporter who claims to be Catholic.
Pelosi and her fellow Democrats say they care about protecting the most vulnerable people in society. They say they are strong opponents of racism and advocates for minority communities. Yet, Pelosi supports the very thing that destroys more black lives in America than anything else – abortion.
CNS News reports at least 709,885 unborn black babies were killed by abortion during Pelosi’s time as Speaker of the House. To reach that estimate, the news outlet took numbers from the Centers for Disease Control Abortion Surveillance reports from 2007 to 2010.
According to the report:
[T]the CDC’s Abortion Surveillance report for 2007, in Table 12, shows there were 212,664 black abortions — 36.5% of the total.
In 2008, there were 194,694 black abortions — 34.0% of the total.
In 2009, there were 154,266 black abortions — 35.4% of the total.
In 2010, there were 148,261 black abortions — 35.7% of the total.
The number of black women who had abortions in that time period was disproportionately high, at 35.4 percent. To put that in perspective, black Americans make up 13.3 percent of the population.
The total number of abortions on unborn babies of all races in those four years was reported as 1,918,419. However, the actual number of abortions was higher. The CDC does not require states to report abortion data, so many states report only limited data and a few – including California – do not provide any data.
Why is this significant to Pelosi’s time in power? CNS News’s Michael W. Chapman explains:
In 2015, Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, presented then-Speaker Pelosi (D-Calif.) with the Margaret Sanger Award. The award is Planned Parenthood’s “highest honor” and is named for a woman who believed in breeding better humans through eugenics and even promoted her birth control philosophy to female members of the Ku Klux Klan (KKK).
