Abortions of black babies outnumbered the level of murders of black Americans 69 to 1 in 2013. According to the Violence Policy Center, there were 6,217 murders of black Americans that year, as compared to the 429,000 abortions of black American babies in the same period.
According to an analysis by Dennis Howard of the Movement for a Better America, out of every 1,680 pregnant black women ages 15-44, 1,000 will give birth to their child and 680 choose abortion. His analysis is based on data from the U.S. Statistical Abstract for 2013 and the National Vital Statistics Report, Vol. 64, No. 1 for January 15, 2015.
In other words, for every three black babies born in America, two will be aborted.
The breakdown of the numbers is as follows:
In 2013, there were an estimated 429,000 abortions of black babies in the United States.
This means that there were:
35,750 abortions per month
8,250 abortions per week
1,175 abortions per day
49 abortions per hour
1 abortion of a black baby every 74 seconds.
Walter B. Hoye II of the Issues4Life Foundation said of the statistics, "When you understand Planned Parenthood is subsidized by half a billion taxpayer dollars each year and wholeheartedly supported by both the Democratic Party and Black leadership in high places, you have to conclude that Black American abortions representing 69 times the number of Black American homicides are an entirely intended consequence of legalized abortion."
Hoye asked, "Why should our government spend $1,282 for every Black abortion, when that same amount of money could pay for the safe delivery or adoption of healthy children? If abortion is going to be legal, a half a billion dollars would be far better spent helping young Black women to support a child (i.e., feed, clothe, educate, house and inspire a future American president), rather than aborting one."
