Planned Parenthood is desperately trying to dispel as myth the fact that it targets and kills thousands of unborn Black babies in abortions every month.
This week, the abortion chain launched a video featuring one of its employees, Tamika Turner, blasting pro-life advocates for exposing its racial targeting.
“I’m pro-choice because I’m pro-Black,” Turner said on the video posted to Twitter.
“I’m pro-choice because I’m pro-Black.”

Turner described the black genocide of abortion as a “myth,” but statistics are against her.
The abortion rate is disproportionately high in the black American community. Even though black Americans make up 13 percent of the U.S. population, 35 percent of the babies killed in abortions are black, according to the Centers for Disease Control. The black genocide of abortion is disturbingly evident in New York City, where state data shows more black babies are aborted than are born.
What’s more, one analysis found that Planned Parenthood placed 79 percent of its abortion facilities within walking distance of minority neighborhoods. Many believe its founder, Margaret Sanger, also targeted blacks as part of her eugenic beliefs.
Turner refused to believe it. She criticized pro-life advocates for sidewalk counseling outside abortion clinics but not joining protests against police brutality against Blacks.
“They only want to control Black bodies,” Turner claimed.
Again, statistics show that Turner is wrong. Pro-life advocates are focused on abortion because it kills more black lives than any other cause, including crime, police brutality and disease.
At the height of the Black Lives Matter movement, Pastor Walter B. Hoye II, a leading black pro-life advocate, pointed out that abortions on Black Americans outnumber the homicides of Black Americans by 69 to 1.
Rather than cite statistics or studies, Turner flipped around words commonly used in the pro-life movement in an attempt to defend the mass slaughter of unborn Black babies in abortions.
“They really ugly underside of this myth of abortion is Black genocide exposes what the anti choice movement really thinks about Black women – that we aren’t smart enough, aren’t capable enough to make these decisions for ourselves,” she said.
Really, the opposite is true. Planned Parenthood tells women that they are not smart enough or capable enough to be mothers. They deceive women, especially Black women, with the lie that they will be better off if their child is dead.
Pro-life advocates empower women with encouragement and resources to help them realize that they are strong enough and smart enough to be mothers and accomplish their dreams.
