Justice Alito's American Traditions
We collect data on disinformation targeting Black and Brown Communiites of Color. 50 of the 51 state laws cited were passed prior to women’s suffrage. But more importantly, a majority (31) were passed into law at the time of slavery when Black women were considered property, not only for financial means but also to support the feeding and birthing of their Master’s progeny. Alito relies on the subjugation of women in general and Black women in particular, to make an argument against the right to choose. But the argument extends well beyond reproductive rights.
