According to the Alan Guttmacher Institute, more than 43
percent of African-American pregnancies end in abortion. Although
African-Americans represent only 12 percent of the American population, they
account for almost 35 percent of all abortions. In Mississippi, for example,
while African-Americans represent only 37 percent of the population, they
account for 73 percent of the state’s abortions. More than 78 percent of Planned
Parenthood’s abortion centers are in or near minority communities.
