Rick Santorum is under attack from the Left for invoking race into the abortion debate.

Let's take a real look at the connection between race and abortions:

-The founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger, created the organization based on her belief in eugenics. She believed in a white master race of human beings. She referred to African-Americans as unfit for society and advocated abortion, forced sterilization and killing black babies after birth.

-Just this week, abortion Doctor Kermit Gosnell was charged with 8 murders, 7 of those murders were of live healthy babies. He specifically targeted poor minority women. The grand jury investigation into Gosnell is horrific.

-Black women constitute only 13% of the female population (age 15-44) in the United States, but undergo  36% of the abortions

-Nearly 2,000 black babies are aborted every day in the United States.

-Since Roe v. Wade it is estimated black women have had 16 million abortions

Abortion is a race issue.
