Abortion advocates are claiming the pro-life movement, including the annual March for Life, is tied to White nationalism, and that those supporting the rights of the unborn might be open to overlooking the racist agendas of White nationalists in favor of solidarity over the controversial issue.
In a Monday op-ed for NBC News, pro-choice advocates Renee Bracey Sherman and Lizz Winstead argued that the presence of White nationalist groups at last week's March for Life was a "dog whistle … coming from inside the house," and that their participation in the march showed pro-life advocates were "ignoring racism."
"On Friday, anti-abortion organizers once again held the March for Life, an annual gathering on the National Mall featuring anti-abortion rights leaders and schoolchildren bused in from across the country," Sherman and Winstead wrote. "The speakers appropriated social justice language, claiming that the anti-abortion rights movement is one of love, 'equality in the womb' and 'pro-life is pro-woman' and that the 'real racists' are those of us who stand against state-sanctioned violence and coercion and believe everyone should be able to decide whether, when and how to grow their families."
