Black Abortions By The Numbers
In the United States, the abortion rate for Black women is almost 4 times that of White women. On average, 900 Black babies are aborted every day in the United States. This tragedy continues to impact the population levels of African-Americans in the United States. The abortion racial disparity holds true when the focus is on Michigan statistics as well.

Abortion providers sell this violent act as a “cure” to unintended pregnancies. Women and men are told the babies in the womb are not “persons” and that abortion does not kill a living human being. The same language that was used to discriminate against African-Americans in the past is now being used to discriminate against unborn babies. Science, however, tells us that a unique, new human life begins at fertilization.
Often the word “abortion” is never used by abortion advocates. Words and phrases like “choice” or “reproductive health” are used to sanitize the gruesome reality of abortion. Attempts to present factual information often leads to accusations of “misogyny” and waging a “War on Women.”
Enough with the word games and name calling.
