Protecting minorities from sterilization…or not: Planned Parenthood

“The not-so-concealed theme of some major figures in NARAL [National Abortion Rights Action League] and NOW [National Organization for Women] was that abortion should be legal because the most prolific breeders were welfare mothers from the dangerous classes … the leader of NARAL in New York lobbied against the provisions to protect poor minority women from involuntary sterilization, and so did Planned Parenthood.”

Alexander Cockburn, quoted in Proletarian Revolution, Fall 1989, page 28
