Ivy League Professor: GOP Supports Abortion Ban to Regain 'White Supremacy'
fox news insiders ^ | fox news insider

Posted on 06/19/2013 8:08:59 PM PDT by Morgana

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.

Yes, I mean the abortion lobby is very largely a product of liberals being alarmed about too many blacks being born

And what is the percentage of abortions obtained by black women? If anything, that law will augment the size of the Afro-American population.

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.

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.

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?

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,

What an asshat.

Black women are four times more likely than white women to have an abortion.

Clearly, it's the liberals who are the racists.

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.

Salamisha Tillet.

What the heck kind of name is Salamisha?

Does this improbably named creature not know that abortions are committed disproportionately by blacks, and that Margaret "I love Hitler" Sanger promoted abortion as a way of ridding the world of "undesirables" ... like, for example, Salamisha herself?

Someone needs to remind Salamisha that Planned Parenthood’s founder, Margaret Sanger, believed that the white race was superior to darker races and that her “Negro Project” was a racist project aimed at what she called the “careless breeding” of those of African descent.

Salamisha must be Ebonics for “dumb as rocks.” Since Blacks abort—and otherwise kill—their kids at much higher rates than whites, she is just stupid.

Ivy League Professor: GOP Supports Abortion Ban to Regain 'White Supremacy'

Does this guy realize Blacks disproportionately have abortions. If we were racists we would applaud this. I find it tragic.

Guess who does support it. That's right, people like this person who actually are racists.

It doesn't bother them at all that Blakcs are under-represented in our society. Nope, that's just peachy according to them.

These chuckleheads don’t seem to realize that 40% of abortions are black babies.

I thought the headline said professor.

I think that these leftist-rapists want to maximize abortions so that middle aged men can keep raping girls and get rid of the evidence.

If it were a racial thing we would only ban late term abortions for white women, and allow black women to continue killing their future. Personally, I want lots of white babies, all the babies white women can have, and I don’t care if black people hate white babies. White people are okay with me, along with their Western culture.

Sometimes it pays to read comments becaue contributions are important particularly where the subject might be creating text books for the Core curriculum.

Would agree that calling the House's effort to ban all abortions after 22 weeks "white supremacist" or "racist" is moronic. Maybe I'm confused, but this may not be the first time that this Salamisha Tillet gained national attention for saying something off the wall.

I know I might take some flack here for my constitutionalist view on this, but can someone tell me what enumerated Congressional power in Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution (or anywhere else in the Constitution for that matter) gives Congress the authority to legislate on the subject of abortion? Seems to me that this is a power reserved to the states or the people, as per the Tenth Amendment.

You totally misunderstand the Tenth Amendment, then.

The Tenth deals with legitimate POWERS. And no government, federal or state, has legitimate power to alienate the supreme UNALIENABLE God-given individual right, which is the right to live.

In fact, according to this free republic’s founders, all governments exist, before anything else, to DEFEND innocent human life, and to provide equal protection to all. It is an absolute duty.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men...”

And the Fourteenth Amendment made it explicit, for anyone who misses the forest for the trees.

“No State shall deprive any person of life without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”

And finally, the ultimate stated purpose of the U.S. Constitution is to protect the unborn.

“We the People of the United States, in Order to...secure the Blessings of Liberty to...our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
