Richard Nixon says pro-choice voters want to eradicate black babies

In a conversation about abortion, Richard Nixon said:

“A majority of people in Colorado voted for abortion. I think a majority of people in Michigan are for abortion. I think in both cases, well, certainly in Michigan they will vote for it [abortion] because they think that what’s going to be aborted generally are the little black bastards….

As I told you – we talked about it earlier – that a hell of a lot of people want to control the Negro bastards.”
