Give it a rest already.
I’ve written before about PRENDA (Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act) and the nonsense “abortion is black genocide” narrative (here). As you may recall, it’s the basis for Operation Spite Babies.
I don’t have much to add on the matter, but I do want to point out this quote about which I have been laughing all morning:
“It’s kind of hard to find evidence that a black woman is going to have an abortion because she’s surprised to find her baby is black. It just strains credulity to think that’s a problem,” [Loretta Ross, the national coordinator of SisterSong, a reproductive justice organization for women of color in Atlanta.] says with a hearty laugh. “I mean, she wakes up in the morning and says ‘Oh my god! My baby’s black?’”
I laugh to keep from crying.
