In the previous video, we examined the dark historical origins of the pro-abortion movement in America and contrasted the movement’s overtly racist and eugenicist past with its sanitized and contemporary narrative of social justice and freedom from oppression.
While pro-choice activists opt to either hide their ideology’s history or be ignorant of it, it’s a mistake to think that simply saying “early feminist activists were racist and early abortionists were eugenicists,” is sufficient to thwart the arguments of pro-choice activists. It’s not.
