Why White Supremacists Support Abortion

Why White Supremacists Support Abortion August 15, 2019

Pro-abortion activists are trying to associate pro-lifers with white supremacists!  But this libel has it exactly wrong.  White supremacists actually tend to be in favor of abortion.

You have got to read Alexandra Desanctis, as she explodes the pro-abortion lies and sets the record straight.

She quotes a tweet from Harvard Law Professor Laurence Tribe:

White Supremacists oppose abortion because they fear it’ll reduce the number of white infants and thus contribute to what they fear as non-white “replacement.” Never underestimate the way these issues and agendas are linked. This turns “intersectionality” on its head.

She then responds to this notion, which is being repeated in other pro-abortion circles:

Here Tribe manages to get everything wrong but the part that undermines his argument. There is indeed a link between abortion and white supremacists’ concern about “non-white replacement.” It is precisely because of this fear that white supremacists and members of the alt-Right have long supported legal abortion, applauding the fact that minority women abort their children at disproportionate rates. . . .

One need only do the barest amount of research to discover that Richard Spencer, a leading white supremacist, is highly supportive of legalized abortion, because, as he puts it, “the people who are having abortions are generally very often black or Hispanic or from very poor circumstances.” White women, Spencer notes, avail themselves of abortion “when you have a situation like Down Syndrome” — an acceptable use, in his twisted view. Meanwhile, Spencer says, “the unintelligent and blacks and Hispanics . . . use abortion as birth control.”

Statistically speaking, the legal-abortion regime in the U.S. has lived up to white supremacists’ hopes. An African-American woman is nearly three times as likely as a white woman to have an abortion, according to pro-choice research group the Guttmacher Institute. Centers for Disease Control data indicate that African Americans accounted for 36 percent of abortions in 2015 despite being only about 13 percent of the population.

In some parts of the country, the effects of this reality are particularly stark. Recently, for several consecutive years, the number of black babies aborted in New York City was higher than the number of black infants born there. Though she was a proponent of birth control and not abortion, Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger would probably be thrilled with this outcome of our liberal abortion laws.

For more on the white supremacist’s and the alt-right’s support of abortion–at least for black babies–read this and this.

Read the rest of Desanctis’ takedown of this “nasty, dishonest campaign” meant “to dismiss the entire pro-life movement as tarnished by the support of racists.”

We might more logically dismiss the entire pro-abortion movement as tarnished by the support of racists.
