Popular conservative commentator Candace Owens described the “staggering” destruction that abortion has wreaked on the Black community in an interview Friday with Fox News.
Life News reports:
“The statistics are staggering,” Owens said. “The black population would be double what it is today if it wasn’t for abortion.”
Since abortion became legal nation-wide in 1973, an estimated 20 million unborn black babies have been aborted in America.
While abortions harm families of every race and culture, they disproportionately harm black families. Statistics show that while African Americans represent 13 percent of the U.S. population, they have 36 percent of all abortions. According to the Guttmacher Institute, the abortion rate among black women is almost five times higher than it is among white women.
Owens, who is black and hosts a show at The Daily Wire, criticized those who chant “Black Lives Matter” but “suddenly get very shy” when someone mentions abortion.
“Planned Parenthood was founded by a eugenicist who did not want black people to procreate,” she told Campos-Duffy. “Quite frankly, Margaret Sanger, she was a success story. She created Planned Parenthood and she wanted to target people that she saw as not wanting to be reproduced in this society and black people were targeted and had been successful so Kanye West is right to continue to beat the drum and to draw attention to this issue.”
