Planned Parenthood Puts 86% of Its Abortion Facilities in Minority Neighborhoods

New research from the Life Issues Institute confirmed yet again that Planned Parenthood is targeting minority mothers and unborn babies for abortions.

Townhall reports it found that 86 percent of Planned Parenthood’s abortion facilities are located in or near African American and Latino neighborhoods. The research analyzed 2010 Census data about the populations surrounding 79 Planned Parenthood abortion facilities located in the 25 counties in the U.S. with the most abortions.

“Although these 25 reflect just 1 percent of all U.S. counties, they accounted for 30 percent of all abortions in the U.S. in 2014. According to the Guttmacher Institute, over 275,000 pre-born babies were killed by abortion in these counties that year,” according to the research.

The research found that the abortion chain added 20 new abortion facilities in these 25 counties between 2010 and 2018, a 35-percent increase, according to Townhall.

Planned Parenthood’s largest abortion facilities also appear to target black and Latino neighborhoods. According to 2017 research by Life Issues Institute, 88 percent of Planned Parenthood’s 25 mega abortion facilities are located within walking distance of black and/or Latino neighborhoods.

According to its new research:

– 49 percent (585 of 1189) of all zip codes within five miles of the facilities had targeted minority populations that are at least twice the national average for blacks or for Hispanics/Latinos.

– Of these 585 “targeted” zip codes, 82 percent have minority populations greater than 50 percent, indicating robust minority communities near these facilities.

– In fact, black targeted zip codes in these counties have an average 55 percent black population and Hispanic/Latino targeted zip codes have an average 58 percent Hispanic/Latino population.

– 75 percent of the abortion facilities are located within or adjacent to one of these “targeted” minority zip codes. These communities are then a short walk or ride away from Planned Parenthood’s aggressive abortion-marketing tactics and thus presumably experience a higher abortion risk.

Planned Parenthood has a long history of discrimination, beginning with its founder Margaret Sanger. Sanger helped to lead the eugenics movement, frequently promoting discrimination through her writing and speaking, including in a speech to the KKK in 1926.

In her book “Pivot of Civilization,” Sanger described certain groups of human beings as “human weeds,” “reckless breeders” and “spawning … human beings who never should have been born.”

She also wrote about getting rid of people with diseases and disabilities through sterilization and segregation, describing these “morons” as “a dead weight of human waste.” And in a 1939 letter to a friend, she wrote, “We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population.”

Today, Sanger’s ugly beliefs live on through Planned Parenthood’s billion-dollar abortion practice.

Since abortion became legal nation-wide in 1973, an estimated 20 million unborn black babies have been aborted in America, many of them at Planned Parenthood. And in New York City, where Sanger started the abortion chain, city health data indicates that more African American babies are aborted in the city than are born each year.

Though Planned Parenthood is trying to distance itself from Sanger’s racism, its leaders have no hesitation to say publicly that “EVERY reason to have an abortion is a valid reason,” including for sex-selection, race and disabilities like Down syndrome.

Planned Parenthood is a billion-dollar abortion chain that kills more unborn babies in abortions than any other group in the U.S. Last year, it reported more than 345,000 abortions, a record number, while providing fewer actual health care services and seeing fewer patients.
