From The Philadelphia Bulletin

The niece of Martin Luther King, Jr. is calling for the Obama administration to investigate the racist implications of abortion.

Dr. Alveda King, Director of African American Outreach for Priests for Life, asked the Department of Justice to investigate Planned Parenthood citing a large number of black children who are lost to abortion. Because abortion providers, such as Planned Parenthood, accept federal tax dollars, Dr. King argues an investigation should be conducted to make sure racist policies are not being advanced.

Black Americans, who represent one-eighth of the U.S. population, constitute 37 percent of America’s 1.2 million annual abortions. In other words, of the 45 million abortions conducted between 1973 and 2005, 17 million black children were terminated.

“I would say wiping out one-quarter of the African American population qualifies as a negative impact on a minority group,” said Dr. King.   “There is no greater violator of civil rights than the abortion industry and if the Obama Justice Department is serious about investigating discrimination perpetrated by recipients of federal money, it should start with the billion dollar abortion giant, Planned Parenthood.”

Black woman are five times more likely to abort their children than white women and two times more likely than Hispanic women, according to the Guttmacher Institute. The institute is a leading collector of reproductive health statistics.

The abortion rate among whites is 11 abortions per 1000 white women. The children of minorities, however, fare worse. Twenty-eight out of every 1000 Hispanic woman will have an abortion and 50 out of every 1000 black women will do the same.
