WASHINGTON, August 18, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — NARAL Pro-Choice America was swiftly hit with pushback after it compared the pro-life movement with white supremacists.
Anti-choice groups & white supremacists have something impt in common: They both want to control women’s bodies. https://t.co/2A3NYyuQBl
— NARAL (@NARAL) August 16, 2017
A later NARAL tweet conflated “the patriarchy” with “pro-life” and equated that to “white supremacy”:
The patriarchy and white supremacy are inherently linked. “Pro-life” groups have been silent on #Charlottesville: https://t.co/2A3NYyuQBl
— NARAL (@NARAL) August 16, 2017
NARAL’s tweets came in the wake of last weekend’s tragic deadly clashes in Charlottesville, Virginia, that left one woman dead and 19 injured after a man rammed his car into a group of self-described anti-fascists protesting a white supremacist rally.
March for Life President Jeanne Mancini challenged NARAL’s claims.
The foundation of the #prolife movement is respect 4 the inherent dignity of every person regardless of race,creed,disability, politics,etc. https://t.co/6X8oQVvGiD
— Jeanne F. Mancini (@jeannemfl) August 16, 2017
“The #prolife movement is against all violence from the womb to the grave,” tweeted Mancini. “The foundation of the #prolife movement is love.”
Added “Speak Out” in Mancini’s defense:
The real #ProLife movement actually defends #BlackLivesMatter as black lives are targeted by abortion! https://t.co/ntpEPBVzBo

NARAL was hit by a flurry of tweets that underscored the American pro-abortion group’s hypocrisy by pointing to Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger’s racist eugenic agenda.
Tweeted “Loose Cannon”:
The founder of Planned parenthood was a racist eugenicist who wanted to kill blacks babies. That's what they don't want you to know

Tweeted B. Lyons, self-described as a writer, Catholic, pro-life advocate:
Abortion disproportionately murders children of color, so I kind of assumed you were all about what these guys promote.

Others disputed NARAL’s conflation of white supremacist with pro-life groups.
“Don't kill babies” is the same as “we hate black people”? This is disgusting.
