Last time an article like this came around, it turned out to be a put-on. Unfortunately, I don’t see anything about the linked publication that shows that anybody connected with it has a sense of humor. Or for that matter, a sense of humanity.
Today’s message is: “White women; abort your babies.” ‘Cause you know, you and your inherently eeeeeevil white-skinned spawn are perpetuating white supremacy.
[T]he notion of “choice” in abortion is inherently white supremacist and ableist. Women of color do not often have the same privilege to choose termination as do white women.

White women: it is time to do your part! Your white children reinforce the white supremacist society that benefits you. If you claim to be progressive, and yet willingly birth white children by your own choice, you are a hypocrite. White women should be encouraged to abort their white children, and to use their freed-up time and resources to assist women of color who have no other choice but to raise their children.
Don’tcha especially love that part about women of color not having the “privilege” of having an abortion when abortion violates their religious or ethical beliefs? Or their social mores? Presumably once all the eeeeevil white people are aborted out of existence, these “progressive” babes will offer “privilege” of “abortion whether you believe in it or not” to other ethnic groups they’ll discover are standing between them and their notion of Utopia.

As I recall, last time a droll satire on “progressive” nuttiness came ’round, it was widely believed — even by the progressive nuts in question — to be for real. It gets increasingly harder to tell real craziness from supposedly exaggerated craziness.
OTOH, if this is real, then think of the effect of calling every white person a white supremacist. Suddenly, white people on the fringes have nothing left to lose …
