You’ve tried to frame the abortion debate into a dispute about gender, race, and intersectionality. In doing so, you are pushing away the majority of white men who more or less accept the Roe v Wade concept of a women’s right to abortion up to the point of viability. You have also insulted the large percentages of women, and, in particular, women of color who disagree with you on religious grounds. I don’t agree with them, but I have to respect the sincerity of those who believe the fetus has achieved status as human life when the heart starts beating. To me, the fetus is still potentially human until the moment it becomes viable life outside the womb.

The key point is that there is a moral dimension to the debate that your racist left-wing political correctness will not allow you to acknowledge. By the way, demonization cuts both ways. There are many women as well as men who would view your support for unlimited abortion on demand till the moment of birth as support for inhumane baby-killing, as an absolutely monsterous disrespect for human life. I’d advise some expression of empathy if you can muster it.

Meanwhile in practical terms if you are successful in mixing all this racism, sexism, and intersectionality into the debate, you will undermine large scale support for Roe v Wade. To preserve the broad political consensus behind Roe v Wade, you may want to retract your whole argument and instead start building alliances. Just a thought.
