As Twitchy reported earlier, pro-abort Marissa Brostoff wrote a piece for the Washington Post trying to tie the American pro-life movement to white supremacy.
In her piece, she also smeared “Hillbilly Elegy” author J.D. Vance, alleging that when he said to an audience, “Our people aren’t having enough children to replace themselves” he was obviously talking about whites: “Vance did not spell out exactly who was included in the word ‘our.’ He didn’t need to.”
As Jeryl Bier pointed out, taking Vance’s quote in context made it very clear who he was talking about: the nation. “The most important way to measure a healthy society,” Vance said, “is by whether a nation is having enough children to replace itself. Do people look to the future and see a place worth living in?”
Never mind that Vance didn’t bring race into the conversation; Amanda Marcotte jumped in to argue that white supremacists think women should be forced to breed to maintain white supremacy.
Not an exaggeration to say conservatives believe white women should be forced to breed in order to maintain white supremacy.
Also important to understand that forced childbirth is viewed as a way to economically cripple women that don’t fit the middle class white housewife mold. https://t.co/3BHDWINJdW

If would seem if Vance is “appalled” by Democrats’ permissive attitudes toward abortion, he’d also be opposed to the ridiculously high rate of abortions among African-Americans. But whatever; the narrative of the day is white supremacists and pro-lifers being one and the same.
"not an exaggeration" is good way to preface something that is exaggerated or made up.

No, we just believe a child in the womb should not be discarded like trash on a Tuesday morning at the curb.

I donʼt think a single pro-life advocate is in favor of anyone being “forced to breed”
This is an insane strawman https://t.co/Aqmojf4vpN
