The leftist media loves to link the pro-life movement to racism even though the pro-abortion movement is the side rooted in discriminatory beliefs.
In a piece Sunday on MSNBC, opinion columnist Cynthia Miller-Idriss did so again when she argued that the U.S. Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade in June helped white supremacists with their goal to increase the white population.
Miller-Idriss presented a truly horrific but more conspiracy theory than reality sounding “plot” by white supremacists to “mass murder” minorities and “mass rape” white women in order to maintain a “white majority nation” in America.
“Abortion is seen by white extremists as part of the so-called white genocide plot, and in that sense, reproductive rights are a part of their ‘white extinction anxiety,’” she wrote. “The loss of Roe v. Wade, in this scenario, directly serves white supremacist extremist goals — as long as it is white babies who cannot be aborted.”
Miller-Idriss pointed to the recent arrest of one extremist with links to a neo-Nazi group as evidence of this. Although she did admit that those advocating for the violent plot are an extreme, “fringe” minority, she still blamed the Supreme Court and pro-life advocates for somehow helping to advance it.

As an example, Miller-Idriss suggested that Justice Samuel Alito fed into racism when he mentioned an insufficient “domestic supply of infants” available for adoption in his ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health. Alito did not mention race at all, but somehow Miller-Idriss claimed it could be interpreted that way.
He also cited Justice Amy Coney Barrett’s December reflection during oral arguments that forced pregnancy is not a “meaningful hardship” because unwanted babies can be surrendered through “safe haven” laws. These kinds of justifications for dismantling reproductive rights reduce women to vessels charged with producing babies for the good of the collective.
It’s not a stretch to see how this frame benefits white supremacist extremists, their obsession with demographic change and their desire to increase white birth rates.
Actually, it is quite a stretch, especially considering how abortions disproportionately destroy unborn black babies’ lives.
While abortions hurt families of every race and color, black Americans have a disproportionately high number of abortions compared to other racial groups. Census data indicates that African Americans make up about 13 percent of the U.S. population, but they have nearly 40 percent of all abortions. And New York City health statistics show that more African American babies are aborted in the city than are born most years.
The abortion rate among African American women is almost five times higher than it is among white women, according to the Guttmacher Institute, and an estimated 20 million unborn African American babies have been aborted since Roe in 1973.
Historically and currently, abortionists and pro-abortion leaders have promoted racist, discriminatory beliefs, too, calling poor and minority children “weeds” and “ugly.” Margaret Sanger, the founder of the nation’s largest abortion chain Planned Parenthood, even spoke to the Ku Klux Klan.
Today, research from the Life Issues Institute that found 86 percent of Planned Parenthood abortion facilities are located in or near African American and Latino neighborhoods.
If there truly is a plot to increase the white population and kill minorities, one would think white supremacists would support abortion and Roe v. Wade, so that unborn minorities will continue to be killed in abortions at astronomical rates.
The pro-life movement rejects such disgusting beliefs. Pro-life is an anti-discrimination and anti-violence movement, one that values every human life no matter what their race, sex, age, culture or abilities.
