The abortion industry is racist. No other entity destroys the lives of so many black children in America every year.
Even though abortion activists claim the opposite, abortion is rooted in racism and other forms of discrimination, and both statistics and the history of its key advocates reveal the truth.
Unborn black babies are killed in abortions at a disproportionately high rate, and more than 20 million have lost their lives to abortions since 1973. Their mothers also are targeted and discriminated against by the abortion industry, and many women’s abortion deaths in recent years have been young black mothers.
According to CNS News, “Babies carried by black mothers in 2019 were aborted in greater numbers and at a greater rate than babies carried by mothers of other races, according to a report published by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.”

And in Mississippi, a key state that is fighting to protect unborn babies, abortion rates in the black community are especially high.
According to the CDC report, 74 percent of the 3,180 abortions in the state in 2019 were on black mothers — meaning 2,532 black babies were aborted. To put that into perspective, only 40 percent of the Mississippi population is black, according to census data.
Mississippi leaders have been trying to save unborn babies of all races from abortion, and their efforts have been a central focus of the abortion debate in the past 12 months. Mississippi Attorney General Lynn Fitch is challenging Roe v. Wade through the U.S. Supreme Court case Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health, and it appears that she may succeed.
A recently leaked draft ruling from the Supreme Court shows the majority agreeing to overturn Roe and allow states to protect unborn babies from abortion again. In Mississippi alone, thousands of unborn babies would be saved every year, including thousands of black babies.
Abortion activists have decried pro-life laws like Mississippi’s as “racist,” but abortion is the real racism. States are trying to save black lives through their pro-life laws.
Alveda King, chair of the Center for the American Dream at the America First Policy Institute and the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., pointed to evidence of this racism in an interview with CNS News.
“Abortion is one of the most violent, reprehensible, discriminatory crimes against humanity. There is overwhelming evidence that many abortions have been performed to reduce minority populations in America,” King said.
King referred to research by the Life Issues Institute that found 86 percent of Planned Parenthood abortion facilities are located in or near African American and Latino neighborhoods.
Many also have pointed to Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger’s eugenic beliefs as a root of the abortion industry’s racism and discrimination. A well-known eugenicist, Sanger described certain groups of people as “human weeds,” “reckless breeders” and “morons” “who never should have been born.” In a 1939 letter to a friend, Sanger wrote, “We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population.” She also spoke to a KKK gathering in 1926.
Today, her organization, Planned Parenthood, is a billion-dollar abortion chain that aborted more than 354,000 unborn babies in America last year.
While abortions hurt families of every race and color, black Americans have a disproportionately high number of abortions compared to other racial groups. Census data indicates that African Americans make up about 13 percent of the U.S. population, but they have nearly 40 percent of all abortions. And New York City health statistics show that more African American babies are aborted in the city than are born most years.
