Legislator: GOP would back abortion if daughters had black babies

During a debate on a strict anti-abortion bill, Alabama state legislator Alvin Holmes went off on pro-life Republicans, saying they would immediately change their stance if any of their daughters got pregnant by a black man, according to AL.com.

He went off on pro-life Republicans during a debate on a strict anti-abortion bill.

“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. They ain’t gonna let her have the baby.”

But he didn’t stop there.

“The truth sometimes hurts, I know it’s hard to say that!” Holmes said. “You will never admit it!”
