Kate Michelman of NARAL: Unborn Baby is “Developing Life”

Kate Michelman opposed even the sensible abortion regulations during her time as president of NARAL. She championed partial birth abortion, fought against parental consent, and sought to prevent any restrictions on abortion including clinic regulations that would have made abortion safer. Yet in her book Protecting the Right to Choose, she refers to the baby she aborted as a “developing life.”

“When I did squarely confront abortion as a possibility, it was a very difficult decision. ….I had to weigh the responsibility I felt for the developing life within me against the moral, material, and practical responsibilities of my daughters’ well being…I have never, not once, questioned my choice to have that abortion.”
