Since the 1973 Roe v. Wade U.S. Supreme Court decision, which legalized abortion in the United States there has been 44 million abortions, about half of those abortions (19 million) were Black. I’ll let that sink in.
The black community is plague with many problems, but this in my opinion is top of the list. I once have a conversation with someone I told them, that I believed Planned Parenthood is a form of population control in the Black Neighborhoods of America. They ranted at me about how Planned Parenthood provides so many goods and services for poor African American women. Today I’d like to ask, are those goods and services worth more than our children?
Anti-abortion activism has attempted to link abortion to racism for decades, the argument that abortion poses a unique threat to black lives has seen an increase in attention in recent years, the result of a collaboration between the conservative black church, black anti-abortion activists, and some white anti-abortion organizations.
These claims speak to real fears about racism in the medical system, calling back to the unethical harms of the Tuskegee study and the days when women of color were forcibly sterilized by state eugenics programs.
It’s an apt comparison in the eyes of black anti-abortion activists, many of whom argue that Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger was a supporter of eugenics who, some say, worked to intentionally lower the black birth rate
Black Americans make up 13% of the American population, however black women are the victims of almost 50% of the abortions. For every thousand abortions 480 are done by Black Women.
The numbers speak for themselves, I don’t even want to talk it about for long, because it honestly angers me, that today and organization makes billions of dollars off exploiting poor black women, by convincing them that killing their creations, their children is worth more to their lives, than to let them live. That is the height of evil and moral consciousness.
