Acting chops aside, Anne Hathaway has always looked like the type of person whose superpowers include the ability to give one heck of a condescending lecture. As it turns out, the white woman is chiding other “white women” for fighting for the lives of unborn children of any color. On social media, the Ocean's 8 actress slammed the “complicity of white women” in producing the recent pro-life Alabama legislation signed by Alabama Governor Kay Ivey.
Hathaway took to Instagram to rail against the recent Alabama law, beginning with the typical progressive inanity of describing the bill as “controlling women’s bodies.” She wrote, “Yes the anti-abortion movement is primarily about controlling women’s bodies under the premise (for many, sincere) of saving lives.” Nice that she gives some ignorant paws the benefit of the doubt, isn’t it?
Of course she bashed the abominable “white men,” whose work this is “primarily,” but she also made room to sprinkle some hatred on the ladies. Hathaway wrote, “HOWEVER a white woman sponsored the bill and a white woman sponsored it into law.”
Hathaway continued, encouraging resistance to this fundamental protection of human rights and sliming the women who did it as contributing to wanton and “unavoidable deaths of women.” She also broached the topic of race for some extra leverage.
“As we’re resisting, let us also call out the complicity of the white women who made this awful moment possible, and which–make no mistake–WILL lead to the unnecessary and avoidable deaths of women, a disproportionate number of whom will be poor and/or black.”
You have to wonder if Anne ever heard these interesting little facts about African Americans and abortion. Since Roe v. Wade in 1973, 25% of black babies never made it out of the womb alive. In New York City in 2016, 49% of black women’s pregnancies ended in abortion.
Hathaway ended her post with the plea, “Speak up. Show up. Don’t give up,” and plugged for donations to Planned Parenthood and the Mississippi Reproductive Freedom Fund.
None of this is a surprise as Hathaway has been a long time fan of the progressive kool-aid. In 2018, Hathaway made Instagram posts tinged with more hatred of white conservatives and another generalization of the African American perspective, claiming, “White people- including me, including you must take into the marrow of our privileged bones the truth that ALL black people fear for their lives DAILY in America.”
She also made public her decision to leave the Catholic Church in 2010 because her brother is gay. In an interview with GQ the actress asked, “Why should I support an organization that has a limited view of my beloved brother?” Of course the media applauded her for her bravery. But looking at her stunted appraisal of the Church, she clearly jumped ship before trying to understand any of its teachings. Well that just seems to be her approach to hard questions across the board.
