“It may not be immediately obvious how the fight over abortion rights is tied to the ‘great replacement’ theory — the debunked conspiracy theory promoted by some Republican politicians who claim that Democrats support more immigration to ‘replace’ white American voters. But the explanation for, say, an alleged gaffe that overturning the constitutional right to an abortion is a ‘historic victory of white life’ or a concern that not enough white babies are being born in the U.S. can be found in the history of the anti-abortion movement.” [editor’s note: It’s also foundational to the PRO-abortion movement — Margaret Sanger created Planned Parenthood for the express purpose of containing black population growth – TLK] (07/25/20)
