The National Right to Life Center estimates that by the end of 2021, 63.5 million abortions had been performed in the U.S. since the Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade decision. Surprisingly, nearly 40% of women who seek abortions are African American, which is astounding considering this demographic made up just 13.6% of the population at the time of the 2020 census. This means that over 20 million black babies have been aborted during the past 50 years.
Let’s put these statistics into perspective. First, 20 million equates to 6% of the total U.S. population. It’s also approximately 45% of the current black American population of 45 million. And, had these children been born, blacks would represent about 20% of the total population. Clearly, abortion has had an enormous effect on blacks in America.
