(Natural News) A black pro-life Democrat gave a powerful speech recently in opposition to Connecticut legislation that would make it easier for non-doctors to commit abortions. The legislation would also expand the availability of chemical abortion drugs and protect abortionists from some lawsuits. The bill remains pending in the state senate.

“One of the most triggering words for me is ‘access.’ The second is ‘equity,’” she said.
“There’s a lot of history we don’t talk about when it comes to this topic, but for me, this is a part of my racial justice fight,” McGee said.

“Because the number one reason why a lot of my colleagues believe this bill should be passed is because they felt that black and Latin women – and this is national – black and Latin women lack access to reproductive healthcare,” McGee said.
She shared with her colleagues the truth behind how the abortion industry has targeted black women.
“Black women make up 14 percent of childbearing population, yet obtain 36.2 percent of all reported abortions,” McGee noted. “Black women have the highest abortion ratio in the country, 474 abortions per 1,000 live births – percentage at levels at these levels illustrate that 19 million black babies have been aborted since 1973.”
She noted that “38 percent [of abortions] have been performed on black women, but black people only make up 12 percent of the population.”
McGee said that words like “access” were used by people such as Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger to target minority women with birth control that ruins their fertility.
“Not only does she go door-to-door in advocacy within the black community, but she tests, she did birth control testing on women in Puerto Rico and so women for generations were unable to give birth. So that’s why we’ve never lacked ‘access’ because we were the prime target for why abortion should be legalized,” McGee said.
“There’s a lot of history that we don’t talk about when it comes to this topic, but for me, this is a part of my racial justice fight,” McGee said. She pointed out that the abortion industry deliberately locates facilities in black and Hispanic communities.
