While abortion has touched all levels of American society, perhaps no group has been devastated by abortion as much as minorities.

Latinos represented about 17 percent of the U.S. population in 2011 but accounted for 25 percent of all abortions performed that year in America, according to the Guttmacher Institute.

The abortion rate among Latinos is almost 3 times higher than the abortion rate among Caucasians, according to Guttmacher.

In the history of America, immigrants, minorities, and the poor have often been treated as social outcasts and blamed for all sorts of social ills.

Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, argued that “all our problems are the result of over breeding among the working class.”

Today Planned Parenthood, America’s largest abortion promoter and provider, identifies its “core clients” as “young women, low-income women, and women of color.”

The loss to the community is more than just a matter of numbers. Abortion means the loss of Latino athletes, artists, political leaders, scientists, teachers, engineers, businessmen, and businesswomen.*
