E Patriot’s Opinion| Pro football player Benjamin Watson is dedicated father to seven children.
Watson has touted his pro-life beliefs a number of times in the past even speaking at the annual March for Life in 2017.
So when Alyssa Milano, who has no credentials that would qualify her as an expert on the subject, was invited to discuss the restrictive abortion bills sweeping many states with CNN’s Chris Cuomo, you had to wonder why.
Milano, didn’t disappoint, almost immediately exposing the virulent racist streak that resides inside her:
“This will affect the communities of color more than anything.
For the women of color, for the women that are marginalized… these bills are going to be catastrophic.” – Alyssa Milano
Milano’s comment is reminiscent of George W. Bush’s charge of “the bigotry of low expectations.”
Watson was incensed and tweeted his disgust with Milano’s hidden implication.
.@Alyssa_Milano to claim that giving MORE children of color the right to be born will negatively affect “women of color” reveals IGNORANCE, RACISM or some combination of both. Our children and families are capable of greatness and lies like this harm our future. Dont patronize us https://t.co/ZSHedXRv1C

Alabama is one of the states that recently passed, and the female governor signed into law, one of the most restrictive bans on abortion yet. The Alabama law bans abortion even in cases of rape or incest, while only allowing an exception for the life of the mother.
Kaiser Family Foundation statistics show that 60% of abortions in the state of Alabama were obtained by black women in 2015. That nearly 2.5 times the percentage of blacks that comprise Alabama’s overall population.
