As seen on America Live With Megyn Kelly
On Tuesday, the Republican-controlled House voted to impose a nationwide ban on abortions after 22 weeks of pregnancy. The measure, however, will not be considered by the Democrat-led Senate, and President Obama has said he would veto it. Democrats criticized Republicans for what they see as a new attack on abortion rights. In a recent MSNBC panel discussion on the bill, University of Pennsylvania professor Salamisha Tillet suggested that this is a racial issue.
She expressed the possibility that Republicans support abortion bans so that white women will keep having babies, thereby "reproducing whiteness, white supremacy, white privilege."
Megyn Kelly, Kirsten Powers and Monica Crowley were all seemingly stunned by that remark, with Megyn asking, "How stupid is that statement!? There is nothing true or accurate about it."
Powers pointed out that if someone were a white supremacist, they would support abortion because the CDC's figures show "disproportionately" more African-American women having abortions, compared to white women.

More black babies are killed than white.
Yes, I mean the abortion lobby is very largely a product of liberals being alarmed about too many blacks being born
The hate is so palpable isn’t it... who would tell a whopper like that for any other reason? Those white conservatives are demographically foolish to ask that the black unborn genocide end. Yet they do it anyhow, clearly highlighting a higher motive.
Exactly. It’s basic history.
Someone needs to remind this idiot that the majority of aborted babies are minorities
uh hello, more black babies would be saved instead of butchered, this guy is a moron
Naw, he’s wrong. Another bunch of Liberal babble. We oppose abortion because we don’t agree with killing babies, white, black, asian, whatever. Like Obama said, “If we could only save one child.” Oh, wait, I guess he meant with gun control not abortion control.
Salamisha Tillet! LOL! I’ll bet she knows a lot about “white supremacy”.
Well here’s what I’d suggest to white conservatives. Take out a full page newspaper ad gently chiding them for their illogic, and asking them if they really would rather be conservatives, that way they can keep their brains?
Salamishah Tillet is an Associate Professor of English at the University of Pennsylvania. She has a secondary appointment in the Department of Africana Studies and is a Core Teaching and Faculty member of Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies.
Did the GOP include an exemption for non-whites that I missed?
Actually I heard this idea on MSNBC a couple of nights ago.
Their main winning theme is GOP wants to maintain White Supremacy as it paid off in 2012,
Black women are four times more likely than white women to have an abortion.
Clearly, it's the liberals who are the racists.
Someone needs to tell this “professor” of Margaret Sanger’s own words-
Professor Salamishah Tillet
Whut a surprise!
Umm, black babies are aborted in far greater numbers and certainly a huge percentage of black pregnancies are, more than whites.
If anything an abortion ban would increase the number of black babies actually surviving to term.
