Nearly Three out of Four Babies Aborted in Mississippi are Black

More than twice as many black babies were aborted as white babies in Mississippi over a 15-year span, according to recent data. From 1995 to 2010, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that 72 percent of the state’s abortions were undergone by black mothers.

During that time, 54,484 total pregnancies ended in abortion in Mississippi. Of that total, 39,052 were black babies compared with 14,529 white babies. The remaining 903 abortions were performed on members of other races

Abortion rates have decreased for both black and white Mississippians since 1995, and the annual abortion total for white woman hasn’t surpassed 1,000 since 2000. While black abortions have declined, the annual total has been more than 2,000 every year but two.

The state of Mississippi’s only abortion clinic is currently in court following a 2012 state law that requires abortion providers to be certified OB/GYN’s and have admitting privileges at local hospitals, which the clinic claims will lead to its closure. A federal appeals court will hear arguments over the law later this year after a district judge ruled in favor of the law.

The contradiction at the center of American politics in Anno Domini 2019 is this: The ruling class does not rule.
