Salamishah Tillet, an associate English professor at UPenn, told the viewers of MSNBC that Republicans oppose abortion because they want to make sure that white people have more babies to propagate the race.
MSNBC invited the professor on air to discuss the House’s recent vote on banning abortion after 20 weeks. The vote is not expected to accomplish anything, and is mostly a symbolic gesture because it will likely fail in the Senate. However, since abortion is a hot button topic, the vote still drew quite a bit of conversation (and consternation) from the Left.
The first thought that springs to my mind is how does racism even begin to enter this conversation? I mean, I know that we pro-lifers (or as the Left calls us, anti-choicers) are generally conservative so we get called racist for other things… but I have a hard time seeing the connection here.
Kirsten Powers of Fox News, rightly points out that the vast majority of abortions in America are taking the lives of minority children. In fact, I don’t think it’s too extreme to say that what we are experiencing in America is not just the genocide of a generation but an “ethnic cleansing” of non-white children.
“Minority women constitute only about 13% of the female population (age 15-44) in the United States, but they underwent approximately 36% of the abortions. According to the Alan Guttmacher Institute, black women are more than 5 times as likely as white women to have an abortion.”
Any attempt to paint the GOP as racist because it opposes abortion is ridiculous. This professor makes herself out to be a fool by making such an uninformed and egregiously wrong comment. In fact, all of the “racial” evidence would seem to paint abortion supporters as the racists, because worldwide (as in America), abortion figures disproportionately lean towards minorities.
Most conservatives are not racist, sexist, or connected to bigotry in any way… we believe what we believe because of our culture, upbringing, character, faith and life experience. Our ideas are borne from sincerity and not from hate – it’s time the media and the left stop the silly ad hominem attacks.
