Some pro-life advocates say that the recent push for racial equality in the US can be an awakening to the importance of their cause, and how the two problems can go hand-in-hand.
Kateri Remmes, a 22 year old intern for Illinois Right to Life and president of the University of Dallas pro-life club, told CNA that the climate of social justice surrounding racism has made her "want to fight it even more."
"I'm seeing how much they go hand in hand, and how I can fight both" racism and abortion, Remmes said. "That was kind of my awakening, in a way, [to] the racial disparities going on today."
Remmes has spent the summer writing about racial disparities in abortion. The climate of racial justice has been a key platform to speak about abortion, she told CNA.
