Dr. Ben Carson spoke with Eric Bolling on The O’Reilly Factor about his recent controversial statements about how Planned Parenthood clinics are strategically placed in order to control the African American population. Carson began the discussion by reiterating his position that Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger was a eugenist who was “was not enamored of black people.”

As Bolling asked him about abortion rates in black communities, Carson responded by saying it was a matter of deciding whether those black lives matter as much.

“The number one cause of death for black people is abortion, and I wonder if maybe some people might at some point become concerned about that and ask, why is that happening,” Carson said. He went on to continue his point about Sanger’s alleged eugenics leanings, saying that if Parenthood employees learned about her, they’d be less keen to defend their practices:

  1. From a Black Lives Matter point of view he is right.

    Abortions and crime are thinning the population. . Dying of an illness is a distant third.

  2. Democrats LOVE abortion (as an issue to vigorously defend)
    Blacks LOVE Democrats (as reflected by block voting patterns)
    Do Black lives matter to Democrats?
    You do the math…

  3. If you read Freakonomics, you will learn how the biggest factor in all the improving crime stats in recent years is not the economy, not better policing, but higher rates of abortion. To summarize the rationale, young males who have a tendency to commit crime are also the same class of young males who are aborted. Think about this my fellow Republicans. Think deep and hard.

  4. 11:16 your logic should make Dems pro-life… more votes…

  5. Brian – 11:16’s logic is not wrong… its just a fact –
    democratic policies are generally harmful to the black community (black lives do not matter to the Democrats) but blacks generally vote “D” blindly
    The math is correct – the logic of the black vote is incomprehensible.
