Activist: poor people don’t want abortion rights

Peace/pro-life activist Juli Loesch says:

“…I was poor and was raised poor, too. In my neighborhood abortion was never anything anyone talked about, it was simply unknown. No one ever did it. No one ever heard of it….

Of all the rights that poor people have demanded, and we’ve demanded them all along, this is the right that we’ve never asked for but we got. You know, you can’t get a house, but you can get your family cut down to size.”

Juli Loesch, in roundtable discussion on “Abortion: A Question of Survival?” WIN, 1 Aug. 1980, 23
