When you’re a doctor who does these abortions and the leaders of your movement appear before Congress and go on network news and say these procedures are done in only the most tragic of circumstances, how do you think that makes you feel? You know they’re primarily done on healthy women and healthy fetuses, and it makes you feel like a dirty little abortionist with a dirty little secret. I think we should tell them the truth, let them vote and move on. In the vast majority of cases, the procedure is performed on a healthy mother with a healthy fetus that is 20 weeks or more along. The abortion-rights folks know it, the anti-abortion folks know it, and so, probably, does everyone else.
Ron Fitzsimmons, Executive Director of the National Coalition of Abortion Providers, in “An Abortion Rights Advocate Says He Lied About Procedure”, New York Times (February 26, 1997).
Since 1974, the year after Roe, pro-lifers have marched in Washington each January. They have marched against abortion in the face of a well-funded pro-abortion movement with immense political strength, and which dominates academia, almost all the media and the entertainment industry. They have marched in the face of opposition and indifference by all too many Christians. They have endured insult, calumny and violence. They have have held high the central truth of Christianity: that all innocent human life is sacred, and that each one of us is a children of a loving God. They are my personal heroes and heroines. May God give our cause victory, and may we live to see a Country where the most dangerous place for an unborn child to be is no longer the womb.
