It happened. The state of Alabama made abortion a felony punishable by life in prison. Many people are baffled by it, but brace yourselves because nearly all the Red States in the U.S. are prepared to follow suit. But it’s imperative that we understand that this is not random nor is it happenstance. This has been a long time coming in combination with immigration crackdowns and an upsurge in racial unrest.
In 1987 the late Ben Wattenberg wrote a book called, “The Birth Dearth” where he rang the alarm about the specter of depopulation and the future of the white race in America as a minority. He doubled down on this prophecy in 2004 when he wrote, Fewer: How the New Demography of Depopulation Will Shape our Future. In a nutshell, Wattenberg summarized that white women living by the 2.5 rule and those practicing abortion would be the inherent downfall of the white race. He even went as far as to say that, “60 percent of aborted fetuses are white and we if could lower that number by even half, we could prevent the decline of the white race”.
So if you’re wondering why states are taking these drastic measures, your answer is plain and simple. White fear. It’s the same thing that put Trump in the White House and it’s the very reason immigrants can no longer view the U.S. as a safe haven. But don’t take my word for it. Jane Elliott describes it perfectly here:

Wattenberg wasn’t concerned with increasing the White race. He was highly concerned with increasing the American population. In the face of rising populations in non-democratic world powers, he cared deeply about increasing the *American* population so the US could maintain its democratic stronghold on the world stage. His fundamental fear was that democratic ideals would–by sheer numbers– be overtaken by populations who promote non-democratic ideals. Not that minorities would overtake Whites. He advocated strongly for incentives like paid maternal leave, paid day care and tax breaks to combat population decline.
And, this is also why he was so avidly pro-immigration. He wanted as many people to come to America as possible. He advocated for open borders, *especially* our southern border. He loved immigrants and thought they were the reason America was a world power in the first place.
Conservative pro-life obsession is about controlling women’s bodies and pandering to the hyper religious right. There is a lot of white and racist fear nowadays. But PLEASE do not lump in Wattenberg to this group. He spent his life trying to get more black and brown people to the US, and found them employment once they got here.
Hey, sorry it took me so long to respond but you are right. Wattenberg should not be lumped into that group and if I implied that I apologize. However, just like the bible is ill interpreted by certain groups and misused, I believe his findings were too. Again, thank you so much for your thoughtful input!
