Abortion Kills More African Americans Than Heart Disease

The founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger, would be so proud to hear that advocates of abortion are effectively killing off African Americans.

"Abortion kills more black Americans than the seven leading causes of death combined, according to data collected by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for 2005, the latest year for which the abortion numbers are available.

Abortion killed at least 203,991 blacks in the 36 states and two cities (New York City and the District of Columbia) that reported abortions by race in 2005, according to the CDC. During that same year, according to the CDC, a total of 198,385 blacks nationwide died from heart disease, cancer, strokes, accidents, diabetes, homicide, and chronic lower respiratory diseases combined. These were the seven leading causes of death for black Americans that year.

A total of 49 jurisdictions reported their abortion numbers for 2005 to the CDC. These included all 50 states--except California, Louisiana, and New Hampshire--and New York City and the District of Columbia. Of these 49 jurisdiction, only 36 states plus New York City and the District of Columbia reported the number of abortions by race..."

The difficulty in seeing the eugenic nature of Liberalism and Liberals pro-abortion views lies in the fact they have adopted a racially cleansed version of eugenics. Instead of advocating killing minorities because of racial reasons, it is based on economic reasons and a perverse notion of being "compassionate". I hope abortion will be an issue that helps African Americans see that their nearly unanimous support for the Democratic Party is dangerous to their well being.
