The abortion rights movement began as a eugenics movement and is still functions, none too covertly, as a eugenics movement. Its core reasons aren’t about choices for women, but about reducing overpopulation and preventing large families from coming into being, having identified large families, particularly among unwanted groups, with social problems.

Margaret Sanger began her work with Italian and Jewish women who were seen as the social problem of the day. Planned Parenthood focuses on black women. And the numbers tell the story.

In 2012, there were more black babies killed by abortion (31,328) in New York City than were born there (24,758), and the black children killed comprised 42.4% of the total number of abortions in the Big Apple, according to a report by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.

The numbers show that in 2012, there were 31,328 induced terminations (abortions) among non-Hispanic black women in New York City.  That same year, there were 24,758 live births for non-Hispanic black women in New York City.  There were  6,570 more abortions than live births of black children.

In total, there were 73,815 abortions, which means the 31,328 black babies aborted comprised 42.4% of the total abortions.

For Hispanic women, there were 22,917 abortions in New York City in 2012, which is 31% of the total abortions.

Black and Hispanic abortions combined, 54,245 babies, is 73% of the total abortions in the Big Apple in 2012.

The number of non-Hispanic white abortions was 9,704, and the number of Asian and Pacific Islander abortions was 4,493.

These numbers are what a social problem and the brutal attempt to “solve” it in a brutal fashion looks like. This is what the totalitarians of the left have done.

    And we want to stop this because…?

      i am not sure of the point in all this anti abortion for blks. no one comes up w/a solution.

  • truebearing

    Corrupt, narcissistic, venal black leaders like Jesse Jackson know this, and used to oppose it, but the Left offered them a handful of silver for the betrayal of their race, and now they pretend it isn’t what it is.

    I’m angry now.
    Why do these criminals in utero merit concern?

    Aborting black babies now is the solutionn, not a probvlem; it’s a pity the procedure is not retroactive. It is morally defensible to commit a lesser sin to prevent a greater. By killing Travon before he lives, ripping him untimely from his baby mama’s womb, we will save lives of innocent citizens. If the price we pay is a few more Gosnells, so mote it be. Those criminals whom we cannot prevent being born, let us arrange that they shall die, with CCW for citizens to kill the thugs in the act, and the death penalty, liberally applied, for those whom we catch only have they have murdered. That’s the kind of liberalism I can support.

      “criminals in utero ”

      You want to stand by that statement? You can delete your comment, but I will not delete mine.

      Let’s assume for the sake of argument that the black babies are “criminals in utero”. What genetic make up makes them criminals?

      Monoamine oxidase A?

      That is what I got from a frequent reader of American Renaissance. I argued it was memes not genes. They argued it was “monoamine oxidase A”. I was nonplussed (happens often). Nonetheless, I refused to believe him & did some digging. Lo& behold I found out Monoamine oxidase A was also known as the warrior gene and I had seen a documentary on it. The scientist or filmmaker, who was white, learned that he had the variant of the gene that made people aggressive. He also knew that depending on upbringing, it was not destiny to be violent. It is like bring up cats or dogs. If you socialize them correctly when the are kittens or pups everything is good. the same goes for people.

      Are you going to also wipe out 33% of Caucasian men?

      “The frequency distribution of variants of the MAOA gene differs between ethnic groups. 59% of Black men, 56% of Maori men, and 34% of Caucasian men carry the 3R allele”
      - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warrior_gene

      I am angry too. I am angry at the race hustlers. but we can do this without bloodshed or a race war.

        There was a beserker at the tome the King of Norway was consolidating his rule. Norway was no longer a a patchwork of forever warring chiefdoms and there was no need for beserkers to run around in a battle frenzy. Yet there was one beserker who refused to stop. It came to the point where the King and his men had the beserker surrounded in his house. The beserker was trapped in the house with his 12 sons who were also beserkers. They would not surrender. The house was burnt down.

        A person wonders about why?

        Now, I don’t any longer. Maybe this beserker had the warrior gene and passed it to his 12 sons. Given the socialization of the day the father and the sons were conditioned to be violent.

        So I ask you would you kill 34% of European men?

        I am trying to find the story. Here is what I have so far.

        “King Swafurlam, by whose daughter he bed twelve sons equal to himself in bravery.”

    Margaret Sanger must be proud in hell!I can’t wait for the time when we will be able to know if the fetus is gay or not.I’m sure some of the same crowd who shouts “my body,my choice” will change their minds…

      “I can’t wait for the time when we will be able to know if the fetus is gay or not.”

      Same here. Then we might get a chance to eliminate them as well. That would be real progress.

    “More Black Babies Aborted Than Born in New York”

    Never, EVER, vote Republican!

  • Adam

    The large numbers of abortions is a SYMPTOM of a larger social problem. If abortion was not available, then the headline would read “huge numbers of black orphans outnumber children with families in NY” or “record numbers of abandoned babies found in NY”. In this case the problem is most blacks are not married, and there is little or no self-control or responsibility in todays black social structure. Evidence is easy to see in the women on welfare that have passed virtual busloads of children through their legs that are then also on welfare or wards of the state.

    Framing it as a pro-life argument is no different than the gun control arguments. It stops at the first thing it sees, and politicizes the issue rather than exposing the deeper fundamental problem at hand. Moral arguments aside, just like controlling guns, getting rid of abortion would just bring on the law of unintended consequences since its not the core cause to begin with, and do little to solve the actual problem.

  • Adam

    I should also clarify that my comments are more in general, since the article did address the social causes… But its not likely to be solved any time soon with the bi-polar fanatics on both sides hysterically screaming “evil abortionists!” and “anti-womens rights misogynists!”. Irritating to see it being used to package an ideological agenda on the right.

    Seems to me that several civilizations have done this type of thing in a less clinical setting, such as the Incas using child sacrifice to keep their citizens in line. (There’s a reason Pizarro could get such a large portion of the Incas to rebel. Bad as the Spaniards could be, Christian ideas like the right to live got the Inca subjects’ attention. When you don’t have the right to live, nothing else matters.)

    Those of us who are not “social conservatives” are not too concerned as long as its not forced abortions like China. We part ways on this issue.

  • rbla

    Question for my fellow conservatives – Now why exactly should I oppose abortion?

    • Robin-Frans Winkel

      Because abortion kills more people than the Holodomor?

    So more than 31,000 future murderers, rapists, armed robbers, assault-and-battery artists, welfare hustlers and drug dealers in New York City were terminated. Am I supposed to feel anguish? These abortions — every last one — were voluntary. Nobody forced these black females to abort. It was their choice. The idea that the fetuses were murdered is a mating of black identity politics and anti-abortion radicalism.

    By the way, Margaret Sanger was NOT an enthusiast of abortion. The idea that she was is a b.s. lie constantly peddled by radical pro-life groups. It’s true she played a role in the research that led to the pill, but that’s not the same thing as abortion. Sanger also happened to be a Republican conservative. Indeed, late in life, in 1964, she openly supported Barry Goldwater for president.
