In Texas, where the state House today approved a bill that would prohibit abortion after the 20th week of pregnancy, 63 percent of the babies aborted in the most recent year on record were black or Hispanic, according to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
In fact, the black and Hispanic babies aborted in Texas in the latest year on record exceeded the entire population of the city of Galveston.
Each year, the CDC publishes an “Abortion Surveillance” report. The most recent report, published on Nov. 23, 2012, presents abortion data for calendar year 2009. For that year, 27 states plus the District of Columbia provided the CDC not only with their overall abortion numbers, but also with those numbers categorized by how many abortions were done on non-Hispanic white women, non-Hispanic black women, Hispanic women, and women of other races or ethnicities. (New York City also reported the abortions done within the municipality and the race and ethnicity of the women whose babies were aborted.)
Overall, there were 435,480 abortions in these 27 states and the District of Columbia that reported abortion by race and ethnicity for 2009. Of these 435,480 abortions, 163,975 (or 37.7 percent) killed non-Hispanic white babies, 154,266 (or 35.4 percent) killed non-Hispanic black babies, 89,846 (or 20.6 percent) killed Hispanic babies, and 27,393 (or 6.3 percent) killed babies of other races or ethnicities.
In Texas in 2009, abortionists killed 77,152 unborn babies, according to the CDC.
Of those 77,152 babies aborted in Texas, 24,457 (or 31.7 percent) were non-Hispanic white babies, 19,152 (or 24.8 percent) were non-Hispanic black babies, 29,576 (or 38.3 percent) were Hispanic babies, and 3,967 (or 5.1 percent) were babies of other races or ethnicities.
The combined 48,728 black and Hispanic babies aborted in Texas in 2009 equaled 63.1 percent of the total of 77,152 abortions in the state.
Black babies were aborted in Texas at more than twice the rate of blacks in the state’s population. According to the Census Bureau, 12.3 percent of the people in Texas are black. However, 24.8 percent of the babies aborted in Texas were black.
Hispanic babies were aborted in Texas at a rate approximately equal to the rate of Hispanics in the Texas population. According to the Census Bureau, 38.2 percent of the people in Texas are Hispanic. According to the CDC, 38.3 percent of the babies aborted in Texas were Hispanic.
White babies were aborted in Texas at a rate that was less than the rate of whites in the Texas population. According to the Census Bureau, 44.5 percent of the people in Texas are non-Hispanic whites. However, only 31.7 percent of the babies aborted in Texas were non-Hispanic whites.
The 48,728 black and Hispanic babies aborted in Texas in 2009 outnumbered the 47,762 people who, according to the Census Bureau, live in Galveston, Texas.
The overall total of 77,152 babies aborted in Texas in 2009 outnumbered the 73,238 people who, according to the Census Bureau, live in Baytown, Texas.
Planned Parenthood, a vocal opponent of the Texas bill that would outlaw abortion after the 20th week of pregnancy, was founded by Margaret Sanger, who argued that some Americans should be sterilized or segregated.

Where do #TEXAS #abortion clinics locate their facilities?
THIS CHART ( BELOW) SHOWS WHERE PLANNED PARENTHOOD LOCATES THEIR TEXAS FACILITIES:
According to the authors of the report, Life Dynamics, Inc, the “ZIP” column contains the ZIP codes in which population control facilities are located in that state. If a ZIP code is listed multiple times, it means there were that many facilities in that ZIP code.
The “BLACK” column gives the percentage of African-Americans who live in this ZIP code and the “COMP” column compares this percentage against the state’s overall percentage of African-Americans.
When the “COMP” column is blank, it means that this ZIP code did not exceed the state’s percentage
of black population. The last two columns provide the same data for the Hispanic population.
