Pro-Abortion doctor: life begins at conception

Dr. Christopher Tietz, who is senior consultant for the Population Council of New York and a pro-abortion researcher:

“Biological life of the individual begins at the union of ovum and sperm… At what point does this life deserve the respect and protection that we accord people? Such respect and protection become appropriate when the fetus has obtained viability, that is when it has become capable of surviving and eventually maintaining a meaningful, independent life.”

quoted in John O Anderson Cry of the Innocents: Abortion and the Race towards Judgment (South Plainfield, New Jersey: Bridge Publishing, Inc., 1984)
