Argument: Abortion is a form of eugenics and mass murder
Norman Haire, letter to the editor, Birth Control Review, (July, 1930) - "For those who cannot be educated, sterilization or legalized abortion seems to be the only remedy, for we certainly do not want such stupid people to pollute the race with stupid offspring. The defective conditions of life call urgently for improvement."
Jesse Helms, former U.S. Senator, in his autobiography Here's Where I Stand, 2005 - "[T]his is indeed another kind of holocaust, by another name. At last count, more than 40 million unborn children have been deliberately, intentionally destroyed. What word adequately defines the scope of such slaughter? [After 9/11] the American people responded with shock, sadness and a deep and righteous anger — and rightly so. Yet let us not forget that every passing day in our country, more than three thousand innocent Americans are killed [through abortion]."
Pope John Paul II, The Observer, June 9, 1991 - "The cemetery of the victims of human cruelty in our century is extended to include yet another vast cemetery, that of the unborn."
Frederica Matthewes-Green, member of the Board of Advisors of the Institute on Religion and Democracy, "The Bitter Price of Choice", Washington Times, (December 22, 1989). - "We have treated the loss of our fetuses as a theoretical loss, a sad-but-necessary loss, as of civilians in wartime. We have not yet realized that the offspring lost are not the enemy's, nor our neighbor's, but our own. And it is not a loss of inert, amorphous tissue, but of a growing being unique in history."
