--  Although whites outnumber blacks 2-to-1 in Georgia, black babies are aborted at a rate nearly 2.5 times greater than white babies and comprise 53.6% of the total number of abortions in the Peach State.
An additional 24.3% of the total abortions are of Hispanic and other races (Asian, Native American), meaning 77.9% of the the total abortions in Georgia are of non-white babies -- 22.1% of those killed by abortion are white children.
Those numbers come from the 2010 Abortion Surveillance report issued by the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), the latest year for data on abortion available from the agency.  (The surveillance report for 2011 is scheduled to be published by the CDC in November of this year.)

According to the CDC, the total reported abortions by known race/ethnicity in 2010 in Georgia was 31,244. Among that total, the largest number, 16,738, were black abortions -- they comprised 53.6% of the total.
The number of white abortions was 6,908, or 22.1% of the total.  Abortions among Hispanic women equaled 6,138 (19.6% of total), and there were 1,460 (4.7% of total) abortions among "other" women, which the CDC describes as including Asian, Native American, and ethnicity unknown.
The population of Georgia in 2012, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, was 9,915,646. Whites comprise 62.8% of the population, or 6,227,025 persons. Blacks make up 31.2% of the population, or 3,093,681 persons.
