Richard Nixon was many things. Thief. Liar. And, apparently, massive drinker of the mulatto haterade. (It restores vital malevolytes!)
Nixon worried that greater access to abortions would foster “permissiveness,” and said that “it breaks the family.” But he also saw a need for abortion in some cases, such as interracial pregnancies.
“There are times when an abortion is necessary. I know that. When you have a black and a white,” he told an aide, before adding: “Or a rape.”
Now, although I would point out that this takes the whole “Margaret Sanger was a eugenicist” thing and kind of makes it into a “the Republican Party’s entire strategy for electoral dominance comes from a man who thinks that I shouldn’t exist because my mom raped my father” thing, but that would just be, you know, classless.
