Black women, who represent 12% of the female population, suffer 36% of all abortions. Latina women represent 13% of the female population but suffer another 20% of all abortions.
Together, they suffer 56% of all abortions, yet they represent only 25% of our nation's population.
Rev. Clenard Childress of L.E.A.R.N., explains:
"The abortion industry kills as many Black people every four days as the Klan killed in 150 years.
"Since 1973, legal abortion has killed more Blacks than AIDS, cancer, diabetes, heart disease and violent crime combined."
