(CNSNews.com) - In Texas, where the state House today approved a bill that would prohibit abortion after the 20th week of pregnancy, 63 percent of the babies aborted in the most recent year on record were black or Hispanic, according to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
In fact, the black and Hispanic babies aborted in Texas in the latest year on record exceeded the entire population of the city of Galveston.
Each year, the CDC publishes an Abortion Surveillance report. The most recent report, published on Nov. 23, 2012, presents abortion data for calendar year 2009. For that year, 27 states plus the District of Columbia provided the CDC not only with their overall abortion numbers, but also with those numbers categorized by how many abortions were done on non-Hispanic white women, non-Hispanic black women, Hispanic women, and women of other races or ethnicities. (New York City also reported the abortions done within the municipality and the race and ethnicity of the women whose babies were aborted.)
Overall, there were 435,480 abortions in these 27 states and the District of Columbia that reported abortion by race and ethnicity for 2009. Of these 435,480 abortions, 163,975 (or 37.7 percent) killed non-Hispanic white babies, 154,266 (or 35.4 percent) killed non-Hispanic black babies, 89,846 (or 20.6 percent) killed Hispanic babies, and 27,393 (or 6.3 percent) killed babies of other races or ethnicities.

Someone did a statistical analysis on abortions a few years ago and figured out, IIRC, that 80% of the victims would have been future Democrats. Obviously doesn’t make it right, but not sure what they are thinking. Of course, on our side we have Rubio trying to give Obama a hand up to a lame duck loser.
Baby murder.. for ‘fun and profit’. Ugh.
“The voters for pro-Margaret-Sangerism are incapable of figuring out who theyre voting for.”
They have no clue who Margaret Sanger is.
The comparison should not be the race percentage the aborting women to the race percentage of the general population but to the race percentage of women bearing children.
Whites average considerably older in Texas than both blacks and hispanics; they would be expected to have lower pregnancy rates whether ending in abortion or birth.
Black births approx 11%, white births 34%, hispanic 55%.
So if the Marxist left is correct and we are such racists then we should be celebrating so many black and Hispanic babies being killed! Right?
Somehow I can’t get that enthused about killing babies even if they may grow up and call me a racist.
Thus explodes the myth that Hispanics are some monolithic family values and deeply religious voting block.
Well, the illegals only need one for the anchor baby.
Wasn’t there an article some months ago, that stated that abortions outnumbered live births in NYC; I think the year was 2010 or 2011?
Too complex? Or maybe you just wrote it in cursive?
I’m betting mostly the Black babies. Hispanic babies are everywhere in TX.
“Im betting mostly the Black babies. Hispanic babies are everywhere in TX.”
Same in NJ; they are filling whole neighborhoods that had been black (and prior to that, white).
I think what will inevitably change abortion laws is what changed them in India (the largest democracy in the world): too many females being aborted. I was recently surprised to see a 3:2 male:female ratio at a son’s graduation (they couldn’t hide it because they were in pairs for the procession, and the whole later part of the procession was boys paired together).
