Race Card Trumped by NAACP

What happens when a fetus fetishist outfit plays the race card to make the preposterous claim that abortion amounts to the genocide of black people?
It comes back to bite your duplicitous honky ass.
The Georgia chapter of the NAACP has formally rescinded its endorsement of SB 529, a bill that would bar physicians from performing abortions in cases where the fetus has been targeted because of race or gender.

Here's the statement from Edward DuBose, chapter president (emphasis mine):
Earlier this month, the Georgia NAACP submitted a letter to support Senate Bill 529. We now fully understand the intention of this legislation and wish to retract our support for it.

At the time, we were of the understanding that this bill would work to benefit the women in our community. However, after many conversations with membership and constituents, we now realize that this is nothing more than using women’s health as a political tool.

Women of color in Georgia need more than divisive messages and deserve better access to health care.

We look to the Georgia General Assembly to support initiatives that benefit the community including education and prevention services and working to reduce health care disparities. SB 529 does nothing to address these goals.

Rich, innit, when an anti-racist organization refuses to participate in your supposedly anti-racist ruse?

Here is LieShite's spin, complete with obligatory reference to the Black Queen of Merkin fetus fetishists:
The Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act, which also helps stop abortions in cases when women are forced or coerced into having one, has already received backing from Dr. Alveda King, the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

So, like, if the niece of St Martin is all for it, what the hell is the problem with the NAACP?

I got curious about that equally obligatory 'Dr' in front of Ms King's name and found that doctorate is honorary. I also found that while her entry styles her as Senior Fellow for the Alexis de Tocqueville Institution, it seems it needs updating or -- no, it wouldn't be misleading, would it?
[The Institution] had 14 staff researchers at its peak. It largely ceased operations in 2006. It issued its last press release in 2007 announcing that its former Chairman was running for President of the United States. Its website was last updated in 2008.

Further googling reveals that southern fetus freaks are planning to desecrate another iconic episode of the civil rights movement by appropriating it to their mission cause -- Freedom will Ride again this summer, this time for fetuses.

Again, these people manage to sink even further into the crassest manipulation, distortion, and total disrespect for real human suffering and achievement.

That's great, fern hill. I had been thinking of blogging about this, and I'm glad the NAACP kicked the abortion criminalizers' ass.

The FF folk may well be correct that, for some of their audience, using a taboo social 'good' like civil rights as a stalking horse will work.

Gee . . . why are all the dogs barking?
