In an article of the OC Weekly, the author talks about the political beliefs of Edward Allred, an abortionist who owns a chain of abortion clinics. He describes his “contempt for feminism”:
Although his gambling and abortion practices may not publicly fit today’s “family values” GOP, Allred calls himself a Reagan conservative. He has proclaimed nothing but contempt for feminists and lesbians, and he opposes women getting equal pay for equal work. And while he has unabashedly supported the continuation of Medi-Cal payments for abortions (government funds that go directly to him and other abortion doctors), he favors the elimination of Aid to Families with Dependent Children (which goes directly to poor patients). The government has a fundamental obligation, he has said, to pay doctors for abortions to prevent overpopulation.
This abortionist is not a fan of feminism or champion of women. He is also quoted making some extremely racist statements. He insults minorities when he says:
Population control is too important to be stopped by some right-wing pro-life types. Take the new influx of Hispanic immigrants:their total lack of respect for democracy and social order is frightening. I hope I can do something to stem that tide; I’d set up a clinic in Mexico for free if I could. . . . The survival of our society could be at stake.

Allred’s contempt for feminism, disdain for women, and racist view of Latinos show that he is no champion for human rights.Share on Facebook
