Interesting statement! Can you please elaborate?
Nope. This is just another one of those lies the anti-choice movement likes to tell, along with such chestnuts as "abortion is linked to breast cancer."https://rewire.news/article/2010/02/18/stop-perpetuating-myths-about-black-women-abortion/
That's certainly the de facto case, considering how the rate of abortions for black women is 27, while for whites and Hispanics is 7.2 and 13.8 respectively. I'm not sure if this was the case was de jure. Source:https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/65/ss/ss6512a1.htm#T13_down
Some sources (National Abortion Federation) will tell you that introducing abortion in the late 1800s was partly motivated by wanting to limit the number of immigrant children in the US, as compared to Anglo-Saxon Americans.But from seeing your previous debates, I know that is NOT what you meant by this statement, especially since the immigrant population in the US was NOT African American at the time abortion was introduced.This is like an attempt by Fox News to make historical facts seem nefarious.
@jeeep33 I am referring to the roe v wade decision that made abortion legal.
@btkendall "I am referring to the roe v wade decision that made abortion legal."Still not true. Quit trying to make fetch happen.
@arkle don't even know what fetch is! It still remains that 80% of abortion clinics are in low income, impoverished ares that have large African American population. The founder of Planned Parenthood was a staunch supporter of euginics to control the African American population that she despised!
@btkendall In that order, I was making a Mean Girls reference, and 2, let me hit you with some Reproductive Rights 101. https://rewire.news/article/2015/08/20/false-narratives-margaret-sanger-used-shame-black-women/
@btkendall going to need to see some sources here...
@jessvdb here are quotes from the founder of planned parenthood. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/03/11/10-eye-opening-quotes-from-planned-parenthood-founder-margaret-sanger/
@jessvdb not to mention that 80% of Abortion clinincs are located in areas populated by minorities. African Americans are the leading ethnicity that abortions are performed on. Its estimated that the African American population is only 1/3rd the size it would be if abortion was no longer practiced.
Its estimated the 40%+ of all abortions performed since roe v wade is to African American population.http://www.lifenews.com/2016/01/14/58586256-abortions-in-america-since-roe-v-wade-in-1973/
@btkendall Your "source" is a site that peddles all sorts of lies, including one I mentioned before; the link between abortion and breast cancer that no actual peer reviewed study done by actual scientists exist.Your source has no creidbility, and your thesis statement is false.You lose. Good day sir.
@arkle the article I used was because of the statistics concerning abortion by race. Weather there is a link to breast cancer and abortion I dont know. Wasnt the reason behind this debate. Ths reason is that abortion rates are much higher among the African American demographic than any other race.
@btkendall "Weather there is a link to breast cancer and abortion I dont know."There isn't."Wasnt the reason behind this debate."Never said it was. Just used it as an example of the lack of credibility your source has."Ths reason is that abortion rates are much higher among the African American demographic than any other race."According to your source, which as I have already established, is untrustworthy.
