After more restrictive abortion laws have been approved in six states, including Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, Georgia, Alabama and Missouri, the New York Times sent a reporter to Missouri to talk to the people who may be most affected by the restrictions: black pastors and black women.
Black communities are more affected for the simple fact that black women have a disproportionately higher percentage of abortions. The rate of abortions has dropped over the last 15 years among all racial groups. But black women continue to have the highest abortion rate at 27.1 per 1,000 women compared with 10 per 1,000 for white women, according to a study published in the American Journal of Public Health. That means black women have two and a half times as many abortions as do white women.
