Abortion clinic owner: Abortion is an act of love and sacrifice

Merle Hoffman, who owned an abortion facility, writes: 

“Abortion is a mother’s act. It is an act of sacrifice, love, power and necessity…

It does stop a beating heart, but it also keeps another one going: the heart and the life of each woman who chooses it. It does that too.”

Merle Hoffman, On the Issues, Winter 1996

Quoted in Tamara A. Roleff Abortion: Opposing Viewpoints (San Diego, CA: Greenhaven Press, 1997) 55

Act of love at 8 weeks
