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.
