If criteria such as the costs (social, psychological, economic) for the potential parents are good enough reasons for having an abortion even when the fetus is healthy, if the moral status of the newborn is the same as that of the infant and if neither has any moral value by virtue of being a potential person, then the same reasons which justify abortion should also justify the killing of the potential person when it is at the stage of a newborn.
It is apparent that nothing short of contraceptives can put an end to the horrors of Abortion and infanticide.margaret sanger
The difference between the way of life and the way of death is great. Therefore, do not murder a child by Abortion or kill a newborn infant.
Pro-choice and pro-life activists live in different worlds, and the scope of their lives, as both adults and children, fortifies them in their belief that their own views on Abortion are the more correct, the more moral, and more reasonable. When added to this is the fact that should 'the other side' win, one group of women will see they very real devaluation of their lives and life resources, it is not surprising that the Abortion debate has generated so much heat and so little light.
No one wants an Abortion as she wants an ice cream cone or a Porsche. She wants an Abortion as an animal, caught in a trap, wants to gnaw off its own leg.
The practice of Abortion was revolutionized at virtually the same moment that the laws were revolutionized, through the widespread introduction of suction curettage in 1970. Even without a suction machine, a simple combination of catheter and syringe can produce enough suction to carry out a safe early Abortion. As for the self-induced Abortion, by thrusting a coat hanger or other dangerous object into the womb, this will also be a thing of the past.
I think we have deluded ourselves into believing that people don't know that Abortion is killing. So any pretense that Abortion is not killing is a signal of our ambivalence, a signal that we cannot say 'yes, it kills a fetus, but it is the women's body, and therefore ultimately her choice.'
90% of illegal abortions are being done by physicians. Call them what you will, abortionists or anything else, they are still physicians, trained as such; . . . They must do a pretty good job if the death rate is as low as it is . . . Abortion, whether therapeutic or illegal, is in the main no longer dangerous, because it is being done well by physicians.
Abortion is the greatest deception that has plagued the black church since Lucifer himself.
My whole professional training was to prolong life, to nurture and protect it. Abortion is clearly at odds with that ethos...[yet] I have never refused to perform an Abortion because of any personal conflict...
[Abortion is] the dirty work of our field. The sad truth is that the people who moonlight at the clinics are grade-B doctors. They're not the cream of the crop.
On social issues, and this is where you get the charges of hypocrisy, Craig has pledged his opposition to gay marriage and civil unions, he voted against allowing gays and lesbians in the military, he voted against Abortion rights, and he voted guilty in the impeachment trial of Bill Clinton.larry craig
The emphasis must not be on the right to Abortion but on the right to privacy and reproductive control.ruth bader ginsburg
For all the conflicting views on this issue, it speaks well of our country that we recognize [Abortion] as a problem. The [law] may call it a right, but no one ever called it a good, and, in the quiet of conscience people of both political parties know that more than a million abortions a year cannot be squared with the good heart of America.mitt romney
[T]he line between lawful and unlawful Abortion will be marked by the fact of having sensation and being alive.
If you haven't seen what Abortion does, then you will never understand what Abortion actually is.
I am opposed to Abortion and to government funding of abortions. We should not spend state funds on abortions because so many people believe Abortion is wrong.
If the Vice President [Quayle] thinks it's disgraceful for an unmarried woman to bear a child, and if he believes that a woman cannot adequately raise a child without a father, then he'd better make sure that Abortion remains safe and legal.
[T]here is a growing body of evidence which suggests that increasing use of emergency contraception does not have any effect on the rates of unintended pregnancy and Abortion.
I would love to see a world where Abortion doesn’t exist but that’s not this world.
I wasn’t immune to the physicality of Abortion, the blood, tissue, and observable body parts. My political and moral judgments on the nature of Abortion evolved throughout the years, but I quickly came to realize that those who deliver Abortion services have not only the power to give women control over their bodies and lives, but also the power and the responsibility of taking life in order to do that.
I prefer to call the most obnoxious feminists what they really are: feminazis. The term describes any female who is intolerant of any point of view that challenges militant feminism. I often use it to describe women who are obsessed with perpetuating a modern-day holocaust: Abortion.
I don’t think government has the proper role in forcing a woman to have a child or forcing a woman not to have a child. And we’ve seen that around the world. This is something that should be privately decided with the family, woman, all the other private factors of it, but we should work toward preventing the necessity of Abortion.
I've noticed that everybody that is for Abortion has already been born.
The fact that a majority of the States reflecting, after all, the majority sentiment in those States, have had restrictions on abortions for at least a century is a strong indication, it seems to me, that the asserted right to an Abortion is not ‘so rooted in the traditions and conscience of our people as to be ranked as fundamental...’
If you refuse to eat an embryonic life form on the grounds that it ends the life of an animal then you might as well join the loonies who gather on N. Charles street to compare Abortion to the Holocaust.
I was co-counsel in Roe v. Wade , have sired zero children and one fetus, the Abortion of which was recently recounted by my ex-wife [lead Roe attorney, Sarah Weddington] in her book, A Question of Choice . I had a vasectomy in 1969 and have never had one mement of regret.
