Claim that Most Abortion Clinics Are Located in Black or Hispanic Neighborhoods Is False

Antiabortion activists often claim that most abortion clinics are located in predominantly Black or Hispanic neighborhoods. However, this claim—offered as supposed proof that abortion providers “target” minority women—is false.

About six in 10 abortion providers are located in neighborhoods where more than half of residents are White.

Fewer than one in 10 abortion providers are located in neighborhoods where more than half of residents are Black.

Some 13% of abortion providers are located in neighborhoods where more than half of residents are Hispanic.
