The NFL star is also correct in his assessment that Planned Parenthood kills a higher percentage of the black population through abortion than the white population, and not by coincidence. The taxpayer-funded organization targets black communities by locating clinics in poor communities composed mostly of minorities. The Federalist reports:
African-Americans make up 13.2 percent of the U.S. population, yet they account for 30 percent of all abortions. A closer look at Planned Parenthood clinic locations reveals that the abortion provider tends to cluster its offices in low-income zip codes or areas that have a high minority population.
I'm not sure I buy comparing percentages of abortions to the overall population as a meaningful statistic (like comparing incarceration rates to overall population) but I also don't think it changes the point much that Planned Parenthood obviously strategically locates its offices around minority zip codes.
