Yes, I get it's going to cause more minorities to be born than whites. That's why I said "regardless of whether or not it is going to mainly affect women of color." What I was trying to say was it doesn't matter if 100 black children are born to every 25 white under the overturn of Roe . What this rep was accidentally saying IMHO is it is most important to save the 25 white children regardless of how many more are born to black mothers. Rep Miller probably figures the additional black children are living in ghettos and will kill themselves off in violence and in this way the numbers will balance out in the long run. That's not my belief so don't shoot the messenger.I suspect that this is your personal confirmation bias talking.
Why? Because the data shows that the vast majority of those seeking abortions are "people of color."
As I pointed out here:
"So while I support a womans right to choose up to the early part of the second trimester, I wonder why so many (38%) were Black women, and 66% were non-white females including Black women per this 2019 CDC report in Pew Research.
"In the District of Columbia and 29 states that reported racial and ethnic data on abortion to the CDC, 38% of all women who had abortions in 2019 were non-Hispanic Black, while 33% were non-Hispanic White, 21% were Hispanic, and 7% were of other races or ethnicities." https://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2022/06/24/what-the-data-says-about-abortion-in-the-u-s-2/
Which is worse, "crisis pregnancy centers" purposefully misleading women in order to persuade them to keep their babies, or real abortion clinics?What do you think?debatepolitics.com
IMO? Misreading of the prepared speech.
She needs to both review and practice a speech instead of just reading it.
