Mississippi: black babies aborted outnumber whites by 2 to 1

Catholic World News - February 28, 2014

More than twice as many black babies as white babies are aborted in Mississippi, the CNSNews service has found.

Using federal statistics from the Centers for Disease Control, CNSNews reported that 39,052 black babies were aborted in Mississippi between 1995 and 2010, as compared with 14,259 white babies. Thus abortions of black babies accounted for 72% of the procedures in that state.

The racial imbalance is particularly striking because Mississippi’s white population is almost double the black population. So if the two racial groups aborted at the same rate, the number of white babies aborted would be roughly double that of black babies, rather than the reverse.

    Nothing new here. Planned Parenthood is eugenics founded and they intend a genocide for the black population who cannot seem to recognize what they are doing.
