Activist: poverty, race are not reasons to kill people through abortion

Social worker Erma Clardy Craven said the following at a National Right to Life convention:

“And listen to the rationale for taking their lives: They are poor! As if poverty should be an excuse for taking a human being’s life! And you can walk through the garbage cans in America and the lunchrooms in America and look at the food that’s wasted….And that to me is the grossest form of racism: to take the life of a black child… And I am two descendants removed from slavery.”
