It appears that Maafa21 and the educating of the public of the racist roots of abortion are taking effect, given the recent May 2010 Guttmacher.

According to the May 2010 Guttmacher Institute’s In Brief “Facts on Induced Abortion in the United States: “Thirty percent of abortions occur to non-Hispanic black women, 36% to non-Hispanic white women, 25% to Hispanic women and 9% to women of other races.”

This 30% 2010 rate is a drop from a previous report. In 2008 – Guttmacher reported that African American women received 37 % of US abortions – see report here

According to the Alan Guttmacher Institute (AGI) fact sheet entitled “Facts on Induced Abortion in the United States” dated January 2008; 1.21 million abortions were performed in 2005. In the same fact sheet, Black women were 4.8 times as likely as non-Hispanic white women to have an abortion, and Hispanic women were 2.7 times as likely.

In 2005, USA Today sourced Guttmacher when they reported that, “Fifty-three of every 1,000 black women of reproductive age have an abortion vs. 18 of every 1,000 white women, according to Guttmacher.”

By 2004, Guttmacher reported that, 37% of abortions were obtained by black women, 34% by non-Hispanic white women, 22% by Hispanic women and 8% by women of races other than white and black . Abortion rates for all racial and ethnic groups have declined recently. The rates now range from 11 per 1,000 for non-Hispanic white women to 28 per 1,000 for Hispanic women and 50 per 1,000 for black women.

This figure was close to the one the CDC reported the same year: (2004) . The CDC’s Abortion Surveillance — United States, 2004, reports that , ” approximately 53% of women who obtained legal induced abortions were white; 35%, black; and 8%, other; race was not known for 4% . The abortion ratio for black women (472 per 1,000 live births) was 2.9 times the ratio for white women (161 per 1,000), and the ratio for women of the nonhomogeneous “other” race category (330 per 1,000) was 2.0 times the ratio for white women. The abortion rate for black women (28 per 1,000 women) was 2.9 times the rate for white women (10 per 1,000), and the abortion rate for women of other races (22 per 1,000 women) was 2.2 times the rate for white women.

In 2001, approximately 54% of women who obtained legal induced abortions were known to be white, 36% black, and 8% other; for the other 2%, race was not known . The abortion ratio for black women (491 per 1,000 live births) was 3.0 times the ratio for white women (165 per 1,000), and the ratio for women of the nonhomogenous “other” race category (376 per 1,000) was 2.3 times the ratio for white women. The abortion rate for black women (29 per 1,000 women) was 3.0 times the rate for white women (10 per 1,000) whereas the abortion rate for women of other races (21 per 1,000 women) was 2.1 times the rate for white women. The differential between the abortion ratio for black women and that for white women increased from 2.0 in 1989 (the first year for which black and other races were reported separately) to 3.0 in 2001 . In addition, the abortion rate for black women has been approximately three times as high as that for white women (range: 2.6–3.1) since 1991 (the first year for which rates by race were published) . These rates by race are substantially lower than rates previously published by NCHS and indicate that the reporting areas for the 2001 report might not be truly representative of the U.S. black female population of reproductive age. Census Bureau estimates and birth certificate data indicate that a substantial majority of Hispanic women report themselves as white . Therefore, data for certain white women represent white women of Hispanic ethnicity.(SOURCE: Abortion Surveillance — United States, 2001)

A 2000, report by the CDC reported that approximately 55% of women who obtained legal induced abortions were known to be white, 35% were black, and 7% were of other races; for 3% of the women, race was unknown. The abortion ratio for black women (503 per 1,000 live births) was 3.0 times the ratio for white women (167 per 1,000 live births). Additionally, the abortion ratio for women of other races (329 per 1,000 live births) was 2.0 times the ratio for white women. The differential between the abortion ratio for black women and that for white women has increased from 2.0 in 1989 (the first year for which black and other races were reported separately) to 3.0 in 2000 . In addition, the abortion rate for black women has been approximately 3 times as high as that for white women (range: 2.6–3.1) since 1991 (the first year for which rates by race were published) . These rates by race are substantially lower than rates previously published by NCHS and suggest that the reporting areas for the 2000 report might not be fully representative of the U.S. black female population of reproductive age. Census Bureau estimates and birth certificate data indicate that the large majority of Hispanic women report themselves as white . Therefore, data for some white women actually represent Hispanic women. (SOURCE: CDC, Abortion Surveillance — United States, 2000)

In 1999, Guttmacher’s report entitled: Characteristics of Women Who Obtain Induced Abortion: A Worldwide ReviewBy Akinrinola Bankole, Susheela Singh and Taylor Haas, printed in International Family Planning Perspectives, Volume 25, Number 2, June 1999 : Reported that – ” The 1995 U.S. abortion rate was much higher for black women (56 per 1,000) than for white women (17 per 1,000).

So, apparently Maafa21 is doing it’s job at educating the public that Black Women are the targets of abortion by the Elitists. Women are responding by shunning Planned Parenthood’s abortion clinics according to the most recent stats published by Guttmacher.
