Report: Abortions Target Blacks, Repeat Abortions High, 10% Use RU 486
Life News ^ | 11/23/07 | Steven Ertelt

Posted on 11/23/2007 9:42:44 AM PST by wagglebee

Atlanta, GA (LifeNews.com) -- The new report the Centers for Disease Control released this week about annual abortion figures in the United States shows abortions continue to target black women moreso than other ethnic groups. The 2004 report also shows about 10 percent of all abortions in the United States are done with the dangerous RU 486 abortion drug.

The CDC shows a majority of women who get abortions are white (53 percent) compared with 35 percent done on African-Americans, 8 percent on women of other ethnic backgrounds and the race of the woman was unknown in four percent of the cases.

However, the abortion ratio for black women (472 per 1,000 live births) was 2.9 times higher than the ratio for white women (161 per 1,000).

Examined another way, nearly half of all pregnancies among black women end in abortion while just 16 percent of pregnancies among while women end in abortion.

The abortion rate for black women (28 per 1,000 women) was 2.8 times the rate for white women (10 per 1,000) -- meaning a much greater percentage

Those statistics continue to worry pro-life leaders in the African-American community.

On 27 reporting areas adequately obtained abortion stats by ethnicity and those areas showed that 19 percent of the women getting abortions were Hispanic -- with a low of 0.6% in Mississippi to a high of 50% in New Mexico.

For Hispanic women in these reporting areas, the abortion ratio was 211 per 1,000 live births, and the abortion rate was 26 per 1,000 women. However, only 46% of Hispanic women in the United States resided in these reporting areas.

About half of all abortions are done on women 25 years and older and half done on college-aged women and teenagers.

The CDC statistics continue to show that women involved in a marital relationship are less likely to have abortions -- perhaps because they are not as concerned about the financial implications of having a child as unmarried women.

For women whose marital status was adequately reported (41 reporting areas), 80% of women who obtained abortions were known to be unmarried. The abortion ratio for unmarried women (510 per 1,000 live births) was 8.4 times that for married women (61 per 1,000).

Repeat abortions continue to be a problem in the United States, showing a sizable percentage of women getting abortions are using it as a method of birth control.

The data also showed that 46 percent of women getting abortions in 2004 had at least one prior abortion and 19 percent of the women getting abortions had at least two or more prior abortions.

Maryland, Massachusetts and New York had the highest repeat abortion rates and nearly 70 percent of the abortions done in Maryland were repeat abortions -- by far the highest in the nation.

Looking at the method of abortion, 87% of abortions were known to have been performed by curettage (which includes dilatation and evacuation [D&E]) and 10% of all abortions include the mifepristone abortion pill approved by the Clinton administration in September 2000.

States with the highest percentage of abortions by RU 486 include Alaska, Arizona, Iowa, South Carolina, Utah and Vermont -- with all having more than 20% of their abortions done with dangerous drugs.

Most of the abortions done in the U.S. came when the baby was eight weeks along or younger (61%) and the vast majority (87%) were done at 12 weeks into the pregnancy or younger.

About five percent of the reported abortions were known to have occurred after 15 weeks' gestation: 3.7% at 16--20 weeks and 1.3% at 21 weeks or longer.

In 2004, the highest number of reported legal induced abortions occurred in Florida (91,710), NYC (91,673), and Texas (74,801); while the lowest occurred in Idaho (963) and South Dakota (814).

Wyoming and New Hampshire may have had lower figures but their abortion totals are not adequately reported to the CDC.

About 92 percent of women obtained the abortion in their home state while almost 8 percent went out of state for the abortion.

The District of Columbia (52.6%), Kansas (48.2%), North Dakota (37.5 percent) and Delaware (28.9%) had the highest percentage of out-of-state abortions. Other than Alaska and Hawaii, Michigan, Mississippi, and Arizona had the lowest totals.

“The new report the Centers for Disease Control released this week about annual abortion figures in the United States shows abortions continue to target black women moreso than other ethnic groups.”

I can see it now. An abortion with a rifle tip-toeing through the woods, “Shhhh! Be vewwy, vewwy quiet. I’m hunting blacks.”

LOL!

Planned Parenthood was FOUNDED in order to exterminate the “inferior” black race. To this day 40% of babies murdered by PP are black.

It is amazing that vast federal funds flow to PP to murder black children to this day. The democrat party are naked racism, hiding in plain sight.

"Target" blacks? Huh? Is there some sort of marketing campaign going on or something? What is this loaded statement supposed to mean?

Latest stats also show that over 70% of black births are out of wedlock. Whose fault is that?

Keep perpetuating the lie, brother. The ends justify the means right? After all, why should liberals be the only ones who throw the race card.

Yep, abortions seems to be directed against blacks. The Klan and southern lynch mobs didn’t even kill 1% of annual aborted black babies.

“Planned Parenthood was FOUNDED in order to exterminate the “inferior” black race.”

Keep perpetuating the lie, brother. The ends justify the means right? After all, why should liberals be the only ones who throw the race card.

Then how do you explain these quotes by Margaret Sanger?:

"Birth control must lead ultimately to a cleaner race."

"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…"

"Eugenic sterilization is an urgent need ... We must prevent multiplication of this bad stock."

"Eugenics is … the most adequate and thorough avenue to the solution of racial, political and social problems."

"Our failure to segregate morons who are increasing and multiplying… a dead weight of human waste… an ever-increasing, unceasingly spawning class of human beings who never should have been born at all."

"The undeniably feeble-minded should, indeed, not only be discouraged but prevented from propagating their kind."

"[Mandatory] sterilization for [the insane and feeble-minded] is the answer."

"Give dysgenic groups [people with 'bad genes'] in our population their choice of segregation or [compulsory] sterilization."

True, the concept of “abortion” (as if it were an aggressor) “targeting” blacks is a little strange. On the other hand, PP abortuaries are disproportionately located in Black and Latino neighborhoods, and with abortion (as in many other elective, um, “services”) supply tends to generate demand -— does that surprise you? Of course, vice-versa too.

Even the abortuaries in "white" neighborhoods have a mostly black clientele. We had one near our very lily-while neighborhood and I'd have to say about 60-70% of the people I saw going in there were black. I have a feeling the mass of white victims are mostly in "white trash" areas. The elites consider those folks "bad stock" as well.

“Do the research, brother.”

I did, unlike the people who spout that nonsense. When I first heard about Margaret Sanger and a supposed “black genocide” I decided to do some research on this evil woman. Where better to start than her own published writings.

What I found was a regular, garden variety liberal who thought she could fight poverty in poor ethnic and immigrant communities through birth control and abortion.

She never advocated or supported any kind of genocide and that is a fact. Tanya L. Green at “blackgenocide.org” took one sentence she wrote out of context and used it to build a lie to be perpetuated among gullible pro-lifers.

I did my research bud and I took it much farther than reading what propagandists write.

Here's a link to the referenced Tanya Green. I'm not sure how hysterical her writing is, it looks fairly well documented. I wonder if there is anything available from Green's detractors where one can go to read a competing compilation of Sanger's advocacy.

So the highest repeat abortion rates are in Maryland, Massachusetts, and New York. That’s interesting, because we’re constantly told that liberal sex education decreases the need for abortion. Yet, three states with notoriously liberal sex education not only have high abortion rates, but the women having them end up with yet another unintended pregnancy and show up a second (or third or...) time at the abortion mill.

"[Sanger was} a regular, garden variety liberal."

I admire your thoroughness in doing the reading and research. I do suggest, though, that many "regular, garden variety liberals" thoroughly believe in suppressing poverty by suppressing the fertility of the poor. This is not this-generation genocide, but it is next-generation genocide to the extent that it succeeds in minimizing procreation in disfavored sectors of society. When you-know-who did that to the Slavs --- not requiring abortion, but 'encouraging' abortion in a targeted manner---- it was later defined as a crime against humanity.

Very fine article about that here, by Dr. Tessa Chelouche, Chelouche a physician with the Sackler Faculty of Medicine, Tel Aviv University, Ramat Aviv, Israel.

I did my research bud and I took it much farther than reading what propagandists write.

The only "propagandist" that anyone is quoting is Margaret Sanger, and she said this in a 1939 letter:

"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."

Now, I realize that you and the other Darwinists would prefer that the racism of Darwinism-Eugenics be overlooked, but the facts speak for themselves.

Bob Dornan said that he once had a discussion with Nancy Pelosi about abortion. Pelosi responded to his arguments with, "C'mon, Bob, what would you do if your daughter came home pregnant by a black guy?"

Dornan was too shocked by her blatant racism to answer.

Plenty of "garden variety liberals" are racist bigots to the core.

Abortions Target Blacks, >>

it doesn’t take a brain surgeon to figure out that most abortion mills and planned parenthood shops are in the inner city or urban areas. but then again, the blacks and democrats don’t know or just don’t want to know who the racists practicing eugenics are targeting.

“What I found was a regular, garden variety liberal...”

Scrath many if not most “regular, garden variety” liberals, and you will find a racist belief system that they often do not even realize they hold themselves. In fact, much of their self-professed tolerant ideas and policies have a very racist underpinning, namely a belief that blacks really are inferior and cannot compete on their own without government “help.” (In some cases the racism is more apparent in the form of “keep them down and beholden,” but I’m not talking about that here).
