Patriot Front’s anti-abortion advocacy at March for Life sends a clear message

The white supremacist dog whistle is coming from inside the house.

On Friday, anti-abortion organizers once again held the March for Life, an
annual gathering on the National Mall featuring anti-abortion rights leaders
and schoolchildren bused in from across the country. Although attendance
numbers have waned in recent years, and despite a pandemic, organizers took to
the stage Friday to boast about their political wins. Not surprisingly, the
decades-long effort to reshape the Supreme Court and potentially re-criminalize
abortion by overturning Roe v. Wade was front and center. The speakers
appropriated social justice language, claiming that the anti-abortion rights
movement is one of love, “equality in the womb” and “pro-life is pro-woman” and
that the “real racists” are those of us who stand against state-sanctioned
violence and coercion and believe everyone should be able to decide whether,
when and how to grow their families.
