A debate over an anti-abortion bill in Alabama quickly turned controversial, after one Democrat said white Republican lawmakers would force their kids to abort babies with Black fathers, reports.

The Alabama House discussion Tuesday became heated when Republican Rep. Mary Sue McClurkin, who sponsored the bill, juxtaposed her efforts to Brown v. the Board of Education, the legislation that ruled racial segregation in schools unconstitutional.

That set Montgomery Rep. Alvin Holmes (pictured) off. “Ninety-nine percent of the all of the white people in here are going to raise their hand that they are against abortion,” Holmes, who is African-American, commented. “On the other hand, 99 percent of the whites who are sitting in here now, if their daughter got pregnant by a black man, they are going to make their daughter have an abortion.”

“You know the truth sometimes hurts,” he added. “You will never admit it. You know that and I know that.”

Listen to Holmes’ comments below:

During his inflammatory speech, Holmes turned to an unnamed white female representative, asking her if she would be okay with her child having an interracial baby.

When she answers positively, he says, “Well, I need to commend you then. There’s not one in 100,000 that would do that.”

The bill passed the House shortly after the debate. It will now head to the Senate. If passed, it would ban abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected. Were a doctor to still perform an abortion with a heartbeat, they would receive a felony charge.

Earlier in that day, the House also passed another bill extending the waiting period between abortions from 24 to 48 hours.
