On October 31, 2017, Planned Parenthood tweeted, “ 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.”
Margaret Sanger founder of PP, stated in 1926 that “colored people are like weeds and are to be exterminated .” Ninety-one years later, the abortion giant continues to target racial minorities.
In 2012, 79% of PP’s surgical abortion clinics were within walking distance of African American / Latino neighborhoods. And the targeting has accelerated with Planned Parenthood’s 25 mega centers built since 2004. Alarmingly, 88% (22 of 25) of them target women of color.
