NARAL Tries to Connect Pro-Lifers to White Supremacists in Outrageous Tweets

August 17, 2017

Yesterday, the National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL) pinned this tweet to the head of their Twitter feed:

As implied, this was the start of a series of blistering tweets defaming and attacking the pro-life movement in America, equating those who oppose abortion with neo-Nazis. In bolstering its argument, NARAL went on to point out that one group which attended the rally in Charlottesville has also taken part in pro-life events:

Correlation does not prove causation, however. The presence of pro-life beliefs among some white supremacists does not mean that all pro-lifers are white supremacists or vice versa. The truth, in fact, is quite the opposite.

Pro-abortion views among members of the alt-right and white supremacist movement are well documented, as is the racist vision of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger and other early proponents of legalized abortion. Meanwhile, the pro-life movement’s goal of ending abortion would have a significantly positive effect on minority communities, whose unborn children, as Catherine Davis pointed out yesterday, have been wiped out in vastly disproportionate numbers.

While the narrative of white supremacists and pro-lifers working together would be a beneficial one for NARAL and its allies, reality, as usual, turns out to be much less convenient.
