Abortionist: “We wont’ lose too many Beethovens”

One abortionist, talking about abortion and birth control:

“Those [young and poor] are the ones that need it most. There are so many damn welfare programs. It’s like spitting in the ocean. Here is a positive program – the kids live in an environment that doesn’t offer much hope. I don’t think we are going to lose very many Napoleons or Beethovens doing this… The population problem is not caused by the offspring of young engineers or doctors – that fewer of these, the fewer there will be to support those who don’t limit their offspring. If we don’t do something about it, we will populate ourselves off the earth. That’s suicide, slow suicide. That’s one solution.”

Jonathan B Imber Abortion and the Private Practice of Medicine (New Haven: Yale University Press, 1986) 51-52
