Since we are on the subject of defunding things in order to protect black lives, it seems someone should make the rather obvious and unavoidable point. While defunding the police is sure to kill many more black people than it saves, defunding Planned Parenthood, and then abolishing abortion entirely, is sure to save many millions of lives while costing none.

Abortion has destroyed over 60 million people in this country since Roe v. Wade. A disproportionate number of the victims are black. Indeed, the black abortion rate is nearly 4 times higher than the white abortion rate. In some American cities, the situation has gotten so bad that more black babies are aborted than born. According to the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute, about 30 percent of the women who obtain abortions outside of hospitals are black. And this despite black women accounting for only 13 percent of the women in the United States.
