Does a connection between Abortion & Race exist?

Surprisingly, two ethnic segments have abortions at disproportionately higher percentages than others.

Blacks make up only 12% of U.S. population, yet they account for 28% of abortions. (2.3 times their total population percentage!)

Hispanics make up 18% of U.S. society and have 25% of all abortions.
