A new study reported in the journal Obstetrics & Gynecology and published by the Guttmacher Institute, shows the billboards are correct. The study found the abortion rate among Hispanic women at 28.7 per 1,000 women — more than twice as high as the abortion rate for white women, at 11.5.
Susan Cohen, also of Guttmacher, adds: “This much is true: In the United States, the abortion rate for black women is almost five times that for white women. Black women are not alone in having disproportionately high unintended pregnancy and abortion rates. The abortion rate among Hispanic women, for example, although not as high as the rate among black women, is double the rate among whites.”
Meanwhile, the CDC indicates Hispanic women account for 22.1 percent of all abortions in the Untied States even though the percentage of women in the United States who are Hispanic is less than that.
The Associated Press and Univision teamed up for a poll of 1,500 Hispanics conducted by the National Opinion Research Center at the University of Chicago that found only 39 percent of Hispanics support legalized abortion.
