CBS journalist: Pro-lifers are just 'trying to build up the' white race
WASHINGTON. D.C., November 12, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) - A commentator on MSNBC has said white people want to end abortion, because “they’re trying to build up the” white race.
On Saturday, MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry reviewed the declining portion of the electorate made up by white people and asked her panel about “ the demise of the white man.”
“It’s been weird to watch white people report on this,” said CBS contributor Nancy Giles.
“When you just showed that graph of the decline of the numbers, I thought maybe that’s why they’re trying to eliminate all these abortions and stuff. They’re trying to build up the race.”
White voters made up 81 percent of the U.S. electorate in 2000, but only 72 percent in 2012. The percentage is expected to keep falling.
The demographic shift allowed Barack Obama to be elected president with only 39 percent of white voters.
Perry responded to Giles by saying, “There’s always eugenics associated with these questions.”
The comment seemed ironic, as Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger was an outspoken proponent of eugenics, spoke at a Ku Klux Klan rally, and referred to “dysgenic” populations as “human weeds.”
Abortion disproportionately affects the black population, a fact pointed out by Pastor Luke Robinson at the keynote speech at the 2011 March for Life. As much as 60 percent of unborn black babies are aborted in New York City.
Dr. Day Gardner told LifeSiteNews.com the decline in black population has hurt their political clout. In the 1960s, “everybody wanted to reach out to us and get our vote, especially the Democrats,” she said. “Now they are courting the Hispanics, because we are no longer the largest minority in the United States.”
“They’re saying we’re not as important, because we’re not that big voting bloc anymore,” she said.
The blogger William Teach wrote that it makes no sense for alleged racists “to make sure there are more Black, Latino, and other minority children not being aborted, so that the country will have more Black, Latino, and other minorities, because we hate Blacks, Latinos, and other minorities.”
Nevertheless, liberals frequently accuse the pro-life movement of sub rosa racism. Brian Fung wrote in The Atlantic that “an abortion ban” is really “an attack on women of a specific stripe: those from disadvantaged minorities and the poor.”

Those are the populations most likely to be targeted by abortionists. Ashutosh Ron Virmani, an abortion provider in North Carolina, boasted earlier this year that he only aborts “ugly black babies.”
The group Protecting Black Life recently found 79 percent of all Planned Parenthood abortion facilities are located within walking distance of black or Hispanic neighborhoods.
Planned Parenthood also sponsored the the African-American 2012 Essence Music Festival to deepen its roots with the black community.
Gardner said such efforts remind her of Sanger’s decision to hire black ministers to promote population control measures.
