Human beings cannot give or create life by themselves, it is really a gift from God. Therefore, one does not have the right to take away (through abortion) that which he does not have the ability to give….
What happens to the mind of a person, and the moral fabric of a nation, that accepts the aborting of the life of a baby without a pang of conscience? What kind of a person, and what kind of a society will we have 20 years hence if life can be taken so casually?
~ Reverend Jesse Jackson, when pro-life in 1977, National Right to Life News op-ed
“On the question of abortion, I take the position that as a matter of law, women must have their freedom of choice protected – that is the law, and I would not attempt to repeal that law.”
“As a matter of law, women must have freedom of choice, just as other have freedom of sex preference. Women have the legal right to choose what they would do with their bodies.”
~ Reverend Jesse Jackson, New York Magazine, January 9, 1984
