Politician was pro-abortion because he didn’t want more handicapped children born

A British pro-choice politician said in 1979:

“I believe very much in the sanctity of life. I think that is one of the central issues for all of us, whichever side we take on this Bill. I do not want to see a situation in which we have more physically and mentally handicapped children…more unwanted children, with all the social problems that will involve… That is my view of the sanctity of human life.”
