Before we get to the meat of this post, we wanted to point out that YouTube is apparently appending “context” to videos about abortion the same way Twitter offered links to official sources to tweets referencing COVID-19. The House Oversight Committee on Friday held a hearing called, “Examining the Harm to Patients from Abortion Restrictions and the Threat of a National Abortion Ban,” and YouTube has appended the following:

An abortion is a procedure to end a pregnancy. It uses medicine or surgery to remove the embryo or fetus and placenta from the uterus. The procedure is done by a licensed healthcare professional.

And then YouTube links you to a site called Medline Plus to give you more “trusted” information about abortion.

That aside, testifying Friday was Dr. Bhavik Kumar, medical director for primary and transgender care at Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast in Houston, Texas. He’s certainly not the first to say it, but he claimed that abortion restrictions are “fundamentally part of the white supremacist agenda.”

Racist, classist, and white supremacist. Yeah, we’ve heard it before.

Kumar’s getting ratio’d in a big way, but there’s one person frantically trying to respond to every tweet, saying that not aborting a black baby means more blacks in poverty, which sounds pretty racist. If you’re poor and pregnant, you could always go to a crisis pregnancy center, but Sen. Elizabeth Warren is on a rabid crusade to have them shut down nationwide.
