Why Won’t the Left Talk About Racial Disparities in Abortion?

Bill Clinton’s famous formula in 1992 was that abortion should be “safe, legal, and rare”. His goal was to unite liberal and moderate Democrats on the issue, but the wording suggested that even among supporters Roe v. Wade, Abortion is rightly considered undesirable: less is better.

In the three decades since, the U.S. abortion rate has in fact fallen – in recent years it has fallen to about half what it was in the early 1980s – but racial disparities still exist. In other contexts, differences between groups in outcomes raise alarm among the political left. The racial gap in test scores has prompted calls for the elimination of the SAT and other entrance exams. Racial gaps in arrest and incarceration rates have raised calls to legalize drugs and reduce resources for law enforcement. Interracial differences in wealth and income fueled a progressive need for reparations for slavery and a greater welfare state. And such.
