Planned Parenthood Official Upset by New Technology

Pro-life writer William Brennan wrote:

“At a National Abortion Federation meeting in May 1982, Alfred Moran, Executive Vice President of Planned Parenthood of New York, warned his cohorts that “we are prepared to begin to recognize that technology and medical sciences and perceptions of fetal viability are radically changing in our society.” He was particularly horrified by the consequences of the new life – enhancing fetal technology – “we begin to see the fetus as a patient, which tends to personalize it” – for jeopardizing the right to abort. He even went so far as to rate technological changes designed to aid the unborn as “more powerful” than legislative attempts to outlaw abortion “because they are human personifications.”
