Unfortunately, yes. And it is a particularly insidious kind.
are aborted as are born.
A black baby is three times more likely to be
murdered in the womb than a white baby.
Since 1973, abortion has reduced the black population by over 25 percent.
Twice as many African-Americans have died from abortion than have died from
AIDS, accidents, violent crimes, cancer, and heart disease combined.
Every three days, more African-Americans are killed by abortion than
have been killed by the Ku Klux Klan in its entire history.
Planned Parenthood operates the nation's largest chain of abortion clinics and
almost 80 percent of its facilities are located in minority neighborhoods.
About 13 percent of American women are black, but they
submit to over 35 percent of the abortions.

BlackGenocide.com also lists the following statements from Margaret Sanger, Planned Parenthood's revered founder:
"The most merciful thing that a family does to one of its infant members is to kill it."
"Birth control must lead ultimately to a cleaner race."
"We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don't want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population…"
"Eugenic sterilization is an urgent need ... We must prevent multiplication of this bad stock."
"Eugenics is … the most adequate and thorough avenue to the solution of racial, political and social problems.
"Birth control itself, often denounced as a violation of natural law, is nothing more or less than the facilitation of the process of weeding out the unfit, of preventing the birth of defectives or of those who will become defectives."
"The unbalance between the birth rate of the 'unfit' and the 'fit,' [is] the greatest present menace to civilization… the most urgent problem today is how to limit and discourage the over-fertility of the mentally and physically defective."
"The campaign for birth control is not merely of eugenic value, but is practically identical with the final aims of eugenics."
"Our failure to segregate morons who are increasing and multiplying… a dead weight of human waste… an ever-increasing, unceasingly spawning class of human beings who never should have been born at all."
"The undeniably feeble-minded should, indeed, not only be discouraged but prevented from propagating their kind."
"The marriage bed is the most degenerative influence in the social order..."
"Give dysgenic groups in our population their choice of segregation or sterilization."
Margaret Sanger, Founder of Planned Parenthood, proposed the American Baby Code that states, "No woman shall have the legal right to bear a child… without a permit for parenthood".
Sanger would be thoroughly pleased with the way her organization continues to run itself, and especially with the support it gets from Black leaders such as Senator Obama. In every town in which I have lived, Planned Parenthood operates its clinics in poor, minority neighborhoods, and works to sell its services as the only choice.
Several leaders of the Pro-life movement in the African American community spoke out on this issue at the March for Life in Washington, DC. and the Walk for Life West Coast in San Francisco, CA. this past week. Their voices deserve to be heard.
My husband also comments on this issue on his blog.
Update: Alvida King speaks out on this subject as well.
