Since the leak of the draft Supreme Court opinion that would overrule Roe v. Wade, numerous leftist commentators have said that limiting abortion rights would “disproportionately harm women of color.” For example, in a May 4th, 2022, article entitled “Black and Hispanic people have the most to lose if Roe is overturned,” in leftist PBS, the author states:
“[I]f the U.S. Supreme court allows states to further restrict or even ban abortions, minorities will bear the brunt of it, according to statistics analyzed by The Associated Press. ’Abortion restrictions are racist,’ said Cathy Torres, an organizing manager with Frontera Fund, a Texas organization that helps pay for abortions. ‘They directly impact people of color, Black, brown, Indigenous people … people who are trying to make ends meet.’”
Likewise, in a May 5th, 2022, article in ABC News (owned by leftist Disney, by the way), the author writes:
“People of color will face the brunt of the impact if Roe v. Wade is overturned by the Supreme Court, abortion rights advocates warn… ‘This fight for abortion access that we’re in right now is a fight against white supremacy in this country,’ said Monica Raye Simpson, the executive director of the Southern-based reproductive justice group SisterSong.”
All of this hysteria coming from the left is extremely ironic because abortions disproportionately kill black and brown babies. According to statistics from the Centers for Disease control, 67% of abortions terminate the lives of minority babies. Indeed, the abortion rate for black women is 3.6 times higher, and while the abortion rate for Hispanic women is 1.8 times higher, than the rate for white women. Abortion kills more black people each year than cancer, violent crimes, heart disease, AIDs, and accidents—combined. With these statistics, we should not be surprised that almost 80% of all abortion clinics are located in or within walking distance of minority communities.
This disproportionate killing of minority babies is exactly what the supporters of abortion want. As Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, stated: “We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population….”
So yes, if Roe v. Wade is overturned, minority communities will be disproportionately affected—but in a positive way, by the killing of fewer minority babies. So let’s celebrate when the Supreme Court finally overturns that decision—and let’s also do all we can to support those mothers and families who will be bringing more life into the world.
