anti choice but pro eugenics

Man Who Wants Full Abortion Ban In Louisiana Once Advocated Sterilizing Poor Women | RH Reality Check.

Oh, and in case you didn’t fully grasp this is a class thing, he advocated giving extra tax incentives “for college-educated, higher-income people to have more children.”

Jail women who have abortions, sterilize the poor, and reward rich people for procreating.  Sounds about right.

funny (though not really… ironic, maybe) how advocates of legislating a woman’s body and effectively restricting the rights of a fully autonomous human being constantly cite planned parenthood as evil bc it was founded by Margaret Sanger who was a proponent of the eugenics movement (and of course because all they do up in there is kill babies).  Anti choice advocates (obviously not all) also support the claim that black babies are an “endangered species” and that “the most dangerous place for a black child is in the womb”… so apparently the way to “save” them is by sterilizing women of color before they get pregnant? Because let’s be real, who are the most economically disenfranchised (read: oppressed) sector in our society? Women of color. Disgusting. They say they’re about ethics, but those of us who are in it up to our eyes know it’s all about power and control. It always has been.
