Dem State Rep: GOP Would Back Abortion if Black Men Impregnated Their Daughters

Alabama state legislator Alvin Holmes went off on pro-life Republicans during a debate on a strict anti-abortion bill, charging that they would change their tune on abortion immediately if their daughters were ever impregnated by black men. During the debate on the legislation, Holmes invoked race to make quite a strong point about abortion opponents. “99 percent of the all of the white people in here are going to raise their hand that they are against abortion. On the other hand, 99 percent of the whites that are sitting in here now, if their daughter got pregnant by a black man, they’re going to make their daughter have an abortion.” He added, “The truth sometimes hurts, I know it’s hard to say that!” Holmes also told the people he was addressing, “You will never admit it!” Holmes previously came under fire (and found himself in Sean Hannity‘s crosshairs) after calling Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas a “prolific Uncle Tom.”
