Bizarre Screed Ignores Abortion Industry’s Racism

“Nate Silver’s FiveThirtyEight website claims to use ‘statistical analysis to tell compelling stories about elections, politics, sports, science and life’ and attempts to present itself as a moderate voice, alongside its fellow Disney-owned media properties such as ESPN and ABC News, both of which have endured heavy criticism for erroneous and ideologically driven reporting in recent years. FiveThirtyEight’s recent abortion article, however, goes a long way toward disabusing readers of the notion that it is an empirical or centrist media outlet. The inaccurate screed argues that the pro-life movement is intrinsically rooted in racism, even though the modern abortion industry is an outgrowth of blatantly racist and eugenicist thought among early 20th-century progressives.” (07/27/22)
