MSNBC host Tiffany Cross pin-pointed “white women” as the cause for so-called “ridiculous” abortion laws as she answered a question from a viewer about the “rush to pass anti-abortion laws.”
“My question is, do these people that are making these laws understand what they have done to generations of people?” a viewer asked Cross in the recurring segment called, “Make It Make Sense.” The viewer claimed she had two “bogus” abortions before 1973 that “ruined her life” as she was unable to have kids.
“No, absolutely. They do not understand,” Cross answered passionately while shaking her head sadly. “And by ‘they’ I mean the men. The men who hold legislative power to pass these ridiculous abortion laws as if they have an iota of a clue exactly what’s best for women.”
She then proceeded to blame “white women” for pro-life laws.
“But you know who else needs to be held accountable? The group of white women who have overwhelmingly voted Republican for decades, enabling these conservative lawmakers to continuously attempt to pass restrictive reproductive laws,” said Cross, in a seemingly scripted answer.

It’s true that black women disproportionally obtain abortions services. A 2011 report by the Centers for Disease Control cited that while black women make up only 14 percent of the childbearing population, they obtained 36.2 percent of the abortions.
She then referred to the showdown on the Capitol steps between Marjorie Taylor Greene and Debbie Dingell who exchanged heated words about their disparate views on abortion earlier this week.
Cross described the exchange as “nuts.”

“Listen, if you don’t want to have an abortion, I’ve got good news for you: You don’t have to. You don’t have to have one,” she exclaimed indignantly. “But taking away a sense of agency over other women’s bodies, you are forcing them to face complications like financial instability and dangerous abortion procedures like the one that Celeste, unfortunately, went through.”
Oh, the irony.
Leftists like Cross claim they are adamantly opposed to abortion because it takes away the agency over a women’s body but they are A-OK with coercing people into irreversible shots at the expense of one’s livelihood, dignity, and free will despite many believing that the mandates will hurt middle-class America the hardest.

Cross continued by taking a shot at the Supreme Court, threatening that the justices could overturn Roe v. Wade as early as this year.
“We can’t look for help from the increasingly right-wing Supreme Court, which will take up a case at the end of the year that could actually overturn Roe v. Wade,” said Cross. “That’s right. Take it seriously.”
Despite Cross’ perception that the Supreme Court is a bunch of conservative hacks, it’s not as right-leaning as most people think. A little-noticed unanimous decision from the high court earlier this year “marked a distinctly progressive pivot” on a jurisdictional issue.
Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas tore in the liberal media for pushing this incorrect perception earlier this month, arguing that they weren’t partisan like the media portrays and decisions are made based on a contextual reading of the constitution as required by their oath.
“I think the media makes it sound as though you are just always going right to your personal preference,” he said in a speech to a group of university students. “So if they think you are anti-abortion or something personally, they think that’s the way you always will come out. They think you’re for this or for that. They think you become like a politician.”
Cross wrapped up by urging her mostly liberal audience a solution to oust the pro-life legislators from office by voting for Democrats instead of Republicans.
“And remember, the only way you can really stop the surge of these anti-abortion laws from happening across this country is by voting and removing from office the people who stand between you and the liberty you have over your own body,” said Cross. “This is just part of the reason that 18 states have enacted 30 voter restriction laws. The state houses are where these laws are passed.”
“So while federal elections tend to suck up all the oxygen in the room, guys, pay attention to your state reps and state senators and make sure they represent your values and not your tyranny,” she concluded.
