The Alabama law will disproportionately affect black and poor women, because they are more likely to seek abortions, and less likely to have resources to obtain an abortion out-of-state.

Of the 27 Republicans, all white men, that dominate the 35-seat Alabama senate, 25 voted to pass the bill late on Tuesday.

Plenty of God’s children to adopt, I assume they will be signing up for a few, each.

If anyone tries to kill me, I don’t think I’ll have any objection to a white man coming to my rescue. I rather expect it.

Yet abortions and infanticides have likely killed more African Americans. The jokes basically write themselves with these people and their racial identity posturing.

The first one to mention race is the racist.

BTW, A strong argument can be made that legal and cheap/free abortion in the US exists to control the black population. Speaking of race. ;)

So, apparently these 25 “white guys” are doing it wrong. :D

The Alabama law will disproportionately affect black and poor women, because they are more likely to seek abortions,

Which logically means that the greatest beneficiaries will be POOR BLACK CHILDREN. What's not to like here?

These 25 Republicans – all white men – just voted to ban abortion protect the disenfranchised, weakest, most vulnerable, innocent Citizens of Color in Alabama.

The cads, how could they?

According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, in Alabama 64% of abortions are on non-white children.
