NFL tight end Benjamin Watson accused actress Alyssa Milano of “ignorance, racism, or some combination of both” over her comments about abortion and black Americans.

During an appearance on CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time, the actress said this about the effect she believes pro-life laws passed in Alabama and Georgia will have on black people:

"[These laws> will affect the communities of color more than anything. I feel like any woman of privilege that lives in one of these states — if this goes through — they’re gonna be able to travel to a state to get a safe, uh, reproductive health care [which is abortion>. But for the women of color, for the women that are marginalized, for the women that are low-income communities, for the women that are most at-risk, these bill will be catastrophic."

Watson wasn't having any of it and proceeded to rip her on Twitter:

Abortion has had the greatest negative effect on the African-American community, which is exactly how Planned Parenthood founder, Margaret Sanger, an open racist, wanted it.

Although black women represent only about 14 percent of the population in Alabama, they account for more than 60 percent of abortions. Since 2006, approximately 100,000 babies of every race have been legally murdered in Alabama, which means about 60,000 of those babies were black, according to Breitbart News.
