文章标题为, “禁止堕胎的斗争如何植根于“伟大的替代”理论” 由 Samuels 和她的同事 Monica Potts 撰写, 争论了反堕胎支持者如何与 “Great Replacement Theory,” the idea that White people in the U.S. and around the world were being systematically replaced by non-White populations through outbreeding and immigration.
Samuels face criticism after she shared the article on Twitter.
“The fight over abortion rights is tied to the “great replacement” theory and fears that white people will become a minority,” 她发了推文. “That fear never left the anti-abortion movement which, 其核心, has always been about upholding white supremacy.”
The article was met with ridicule for what critics said was a lack of evidence and muddled reasoning. 与此同时, other critics highlighted how a majority of abortion clinics are located in minority neighborhoods.
Reason editor Liz Wolfe said the article was making a “terrible accusation.”
“This is a terrible accusation, backed by minimal evidence & unclear reasoning, and I’m frankly stunned to have read an attempt at justifying this quite-bad thesis in @FiveThirtyEight,” 她发了推文.
She followed up by retweeting a previous statement about how “more black babies are aborted each year than born alive” 在纽约市.
Daily Wire’s Matt Walsh echoed Wolfe and noted how Black women make up a disproportionate percentage of abortions.
“Black women are responsible for a vastly disproportionate percentage of abortions. Abortion bans will increase the black population by percentage much more than it will increase the white population by percentage. 除此以外, great point Alexandra. Not stupid at all. 谢谢,” 他发了推文.
Townhall editor and Fox News contributor Katie Pavlich commented on the placement of abortion facilities.
“Considering the vast majority of abortion clinics are in minority neighborhoods, this is total garbage,” 她发了推文.
Omitted from Samuels’ article was any mention of pioneer of the abortion-rights movement Margaret Sanger. Sanger, who was a birth control activist and nurse who later founded what became Planned Parenthood in 1916, held controversial views on race. She was a supporter of eugenics, often justifying that support with racist views.
“It is said that the aboriginal Australian, the lowest known species of the human family, just a step higher than the chimpanzee in brain development, has so little sexual control that police authority alone prevents him from obtaining sexual satisfaction on the streets,” Sanger wrote in an essay titled, “What Every Girl Should Know.”
Planned Parenthood disavowed Sanger last year in a New York Times op-ed.
“We will no longer make excuses or apologize for Margaret Sanger’s actions,” Planned Parenthood CEO and president Alexis McGill Johnson wrote. “But we can’t simply call her racist, scrub her from our history, and move on. We must examine how we have perpetuated her harms over the last century — as an organization, an institution, and as individuals.”
