Fox guest punches back at MSNBC panelist who accused pro-lifers of viewing black women as ‘incubators’

Fox News guest, Concerned Women for America CEO Penny Nance, slammed MSNBC’s “noxious,” “ignorant,” and “hateful” abortion rhetoric that accused pro-life advocates of being oppressors of black women and treating them like “incubators.”

The MSNBC panelist also derided the white female attorney general of Mississippi who has just filed a brief with the Supreme Court contesting Roe vs. Wade over abortions carried out after 15 weeks. The panelist stated, “We also know that women of color and low-income women get abortions at higher rates than white women and more affluent women… this really shows that, you know, the attorney general ultimately is a wealthy white woman who is acting in the interests of conservatives and other wealthy white women.”

“That segment was noxious and hateful and the hatefulness was only surpassed by just the ignorance around it,” Nance declared on “Fox News @ Night” this week.

“Anyone that has any dealings with the pro-life movement knows that there’s deep unity and there’s women of color that have led in that movement. It is just such a backhand to the African-American women who’ve led the movement. Women like Dr. Mildred Jefferson, who was the first African-American woman to graduate from Harvard Medical School. The first African-American woman to be admitted to the Boston Surgical Society. Her work is so important that her papers are held at Harvard to be studied. And she was the leader of the pro-life movement and was the president of the National Right-to-Life Commission,” Nance pointed out.

“Women like Kay Coles James and Dr. Alveda King, our sisters that link arms with us in this movement. It’s so disrespectful to them,” she said, taking great offense to the MSNBC panelist’s racist assertions.

The discussion then turned to the Hyde Amendment which bans the use of federal funds to pay for abortion except to save the life of the woman, or if the pregnancy arises from incest or rape. Democrats claim it is unfair to cut off that funding because it negatively impacts women of color and low-income.

“It suggesting somehow that the answer to poverty or the answer to hurt is to take the life of another human being. The pro-life movement links arms and cares for the least of these. Not just a baby in the womb, but walks alongside these women for many years after and even sometimes taking them into our homes. The true racism in this question… there are racists in this conversation,” she contended.

“But we need to look at Planned Parenthood, at the founder Margaret Sanger who was a leader in the eugenicist movement. Who called minorities human weeds. Who worked to usher in forced sterilizations. Sixty-thousand Americans, many of whom were minorities were forced-sterilized under her leadership,” Nance said.

“And by the way, that hasn’t changed. We still find the majority, almost 80 percent of Planned Parenthood abortion clinics in minority communities. Yes, it’s a very real problem when only 13 percent of the population is having almost 40 percent of abortions. There’s something very wrong. Pro-life women want to love and care for them. The other side wants to exterminate them,” Nance bluntly declared as she concluded the segment.
