On Tuesday in recognition of Halloween Planned Parenthood targeted black women with “#ScaryStats” through their @PPBlackComm Twitter account. In their leading tweet they said, “If you’re a Black woman in America, it’s statistically safer to have an abortion than to carry a pregnancy to term or give birth .”

They follow-up with the statistics. “Between 1998-2015, 16.1mil women accessed abortion care, 108 died. Btwn 2011–’13, BW accounted for 43.5 deaths of every 100,000 live births,” they tweeted.

They then reference a mortality one-pager from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and an op/ed at The Huffington Post.

They wrap up with this tweet, “Maternal deaths for Black women span age, education and income level. Racism, lack of access to quality health care and poverty kill us.”

The history of Planned Parenthood is not lost on pro-lifers who read these tweets. Planned Parenthood’s founder, Margaret Sanger, was a racist eugenist.

Also, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg made an interesting remark during an interview with The New York Times Magazine in 2009 when asked about the accessibility to abortion some women have that I think applies in this instance.

“Frankly I had thought that at the time Roe was decided, there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of. So that Roe was going to be then set up for Medicaid funding for abortion,” she said.

Who is “we”? And what are the populations she mentions?

Another fact should not be lost on pro-lifers. With every abortion, there is always at least one death. Abortion is NEVER safe for the pre-born baby and it always ends with her death.

The black community is specifically targeted for abortion, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that 35 percent of all abortions are performed on black women. That is a highly disproportionate number.

If Planned Parenthood truly cared about black women they would stop targeting them in the womb.
