CDC: 35% of Abortions are Black Babies

"A disproportionate number of minorities still receive them."

Statistics don't lie, and a recent report from the U.S. Center for Disease Control (CDC) shows that while overall abortions remain in decline, a disproportionate number of minorities still receive them, 35 percent of whom are black. 

From LifeSiteNews:

According to the CDC report, the rate of abortion among African-American women is far higher than among white American women. While black women make up only six percent of the U.S. population, they account for 35 percent of abortions reported.

White people comprise 77 percent of the population, and white mothers account for 37 percent of abortions. Hispanics make up 17.6 percent of the population and account for 19 percent of abortions.

It should be noted that the report does not include abortions that go unreported, and only includes data from 29 states.

Arizona, California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Washington, Wisconsin, and Wyoming either "did not report, did not report by race/ethnicity, or did not meet reporting standards."

These highly alarming numbers come within weeks of rapper Nick Cannon openly exclaiming in an interview that abortion and Planned Parenthood perpetuate a "real genocide" against black people for the sake of "population control."

The report also should that 13,000 abortions – 1.3 percent – were committed in the late term against babies beyond 20 weeks' gestation.
