Daily Beast writer Barrett Holmes Pitner claims that Alabama pro-life laws are the South’s new slave laws.
“Southern Republican states taking away women’s rights now by using the same tactics they once developed to disenfranchise and discriminate against black Americans.”

When lefties get upset, accusation of, or allusions to, racism can start flying. The left is very upset about states passing laws restricting abortion. On cue, Daily Beast writer Barrett Holmes Pitner composed a piece claiming that Alabama’s recent pro-life legislation is borrowed from old pro-slavery America and Jim Crow. The point, ladies, is that the South’s gonna do it again, and this time they’re gonna put “‘y’all back” in chains (hat tip Joe Biden).
For non-hyperventilating Americans, this idea is utterly bogus. But if you can convince mentally-addled lefties that Alabama is currently doing to women what they did to African Americans way back when, you’ll probably create some loyal anti-life footsoldiers.
In the piece titled, “The Alabamification of America: From Jim Crow to Jane Doe,” Pitner wrote, “Southern Republican states [are] taking away women’s rights now by using the same tactics they once developed to disenfranchise and discriminate against black Americans.”
Pitner employed the trick of associating the actually regressive policies of segregation and slavery with “regressive” pro-life laws. Now if defending the rights of the unborn was a primitive and regressive idea maybe there would be some weight to it. But it’s not. So on that note primarily the whole piece is a wash. More
So not killing black babies in the womb is slavery?
The logic here is missing. Blacks are the ones getting the most abortions. So if the South was trying to hurt Blacks, they would liberalize abortion laws, not outlaw them. The stupid is strong here.
Because saving black babies from death is the newest racist thing to do! How do these people get dress in the morning..🤦♂️🤦♂️

The left in their all-out effort to demonize all things Christian, Conservative or POTUS supported, repeatedly jump the shark.
These people need to read up on history
