According to protectingblacklife.org, “2010 Census results reveal that Planned Parenthood is targeting minority neighborhoods. 79% of its surgical abortion facilities are located within walking distance of African American or Hispanic/Latino neighborhoods.”
The U.S. Center for Disease Control (CDC) adds:
While black women make up only six percent of the U.S. population, they account for 35 percent of abortions reported. That doesn't include unreported and underreported abortions. The CDC report includes only abortion disclosures from 29 states.
