I’ve long believed that this helps explain so many so-called “white” men’s anti-abortion fervor (fever?). It has little or nothing to do with the “sanctity of life.” Rather, as Tim writes here, it has everything to do with holding onto or growing their power and hegemony over everybody else by keeping the surging black and brown hordes outnumbered and (by white males’ lights) therefore out of power. Thus, white womens’ Job One (and perhaps only real raison d’etre) is to produce more white people.
