Black pro-life leader on abortionists and the poor

Dr. Mildred Jefferson, the first black woman to graduate from Harvard Medical School and a three-term president of the National Right to Life Committee:

“Abortionists argue, ‘Let the poor have abortions like the rich can.’ Then abortionists should make a list of the other things rich women have that they’re going to give to poor women.”

Deborah Deasy, “MD Says Abortion Hurts Blacks Most.” The Pittsburgh Press, October 24, 1977

Abortionists aren’t really concerned about helping the poor. If they were, they would also help them have and provide for their children.
