The Abortion Song

In his famous book Aborting America (New York, Doubleday Company, 1979) former abortionist and abortion rights crusader turned pro-lifer Dr. Bernard Nathanson discusses how many doctors began performing abortions after it became legal, motivated by the money that could be made. He quotes a song he remembers from his days as an intern:

“There’s a fortune….in abortion
Just a twist of the wrist and you’re through.
The population….of the nation
Won’t grow if it’s left up to you.
In the daytime…In the nighttime
There is always more work to undo.
Oh there’s a fortune…In abortion
But you’ll wind up in the pen before you’re through.
Now there’s a gold mine…in the sex line
And it’s so easy to do.
Not only rabbits…have those habits
So why worry about typhoid and flu?
You never bother…the future father
and there’s so many of them too.
Oh there’s a fortune…in abortion
But you’ll wind up in the pen before you’re through.”

Abortion Clinic Was a Big Moneymaking Operation

“When I mentioned that this particular abortion clinic was a big money-making operation, I only remember one of the doctors stating at one particular time that he could do three abortions in ten minutes and make the same amount of money as delivering one woman full term, and he might have to get up in the middle of the night to go deliver this baby.”

Former abortion clinic worker Kathy Sparks, from her talk at The Meet the Abortion Providers Convention, 1993
