More Black Babies Were Aborted Than Born in NYC
In a report by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene Office, abortion numbers were at all all-time high.
According to the report titled “Summary of Vital Statistics 2012 The City of New York, Pregnancy Outcomes,” the majority of these abortions came from Hispanic and black communities, specifically 42.4% were of black children and 31% were of Hispanic children.
In the rest of the country, 30% of abortions are performed on black women and 25% on Hispanic women, reports the Alan Guttmacher Institute. Black women are more than 5 times more likely to have an abortion than white women.
Ever since Roe v. Wade, roughly 13 million black children have been killed before their birth, according to Rev. John J. Raphael of Howard University. 40% of black pregnancies end in abortion.
Eugenicists, like the late Margaret Sanger, are probably ecstatic over these numbers. Sanger was the founder of Planned Parenthood, an organization that the Obama Administration continues to support, and she believed in racial purification.
Sanger was outspoken about her ideals. “[We should] apply a stern and rigid policy of sterilization and segregation to that grade of population whose progeny is tainted, or whose inheritance is such that objectionable traits may be transmitted to offspring.”
She also stated in 1922, “We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”
She targeted poorer communities, made up of black and Hispanic populations. Ironically, she did not support abortion, but promoted birth control heavily. However, her program was not effective due to the the rise of the black middle class.
24% of mothers in black communities were single ones in 1965, which was much higher than the Caucasian population numbers. In an attempt to close the gap between white and black single mothers, the government enhanced the welfare state.
“The result, however, was precisely the opposite of what was intended: thanks to the rise of the welfare state, which incentivized single motherhood, as well as a cultural shift discarding traditional family structure as a standard to be emulated, the black single motherhood rate skyrocketed. Black entry into the middle class stalled,” writes Breitbart.
73% of black children are born out of wedlock. However, the majority of black children were terminated before being born.
“Since the number of current living Blacks (in the U.S.) is 36 million, the missing 16 million represents an enormous loss, for without abortion, America’s Black community would now number 52 million persons. It would be 36 percent larger than it is. Abortion has swept through the Black community like a scythe, cutting down every fourth member,” said Michael Novak, an American Catholic philosopher.
Obama has continuously characterized abortion has a solution to better a woman’s life, as if a child is a punishment. “On the 41st anniversary of Roe v. Wade, Obama declared abortion a vital element in allowing “everyone… the freedom and opportunities to fulfill their dreams,” writes Breitbart.
Author’s note: We should be alarmed by these numbers. This disproportionately impacts the African American community.
Editor’s note: This is certainly ironic, that a majority of black voters support the Democratic Party which supports Planned Parenthood, whose original goal was to exterminate them.
