Abortion is an attack on the family and the humanity that unites us all.

Alveda King

I should have been an abortion. The only reason I wasn't was that my father was a Christian.

Neko Case

No woman can call herself free who does not control her own body.

Margaret Sanger

You cannot have maternal health without reproductive health. And reproductive health includes contraception and family planning and access to legal, safe abortion.

Hillary Clinton

The biggest obstacle was mixing abortion with overpopulation. These are two things that have nothing to do with each other.

Jacques Yves Cousteau

Under Obama, our federal tax dollars can now be used to fund abortion all over the world. With the stroke of a pen, abortion essentially became a U.S. foreign export.

Rick Perry

However much I dislike the idea of abortion, you should not criminalize a woman who, in very difficult circumstances, makes that choice.

Tony Blair

They credited us with the birth of that sort of heavy metal thing. Well, if that's the case, there should be an immediate abortion.

Ginger Baker

If you look at Griswold, what you can see is the first time the Court recognized the right to privacy, which ends up becoming ultimately the right to abortion.

Jay Alan Sekulow

In the case of abortion, one pits the life of the fetus against the interests of the pregnant woman.

Leon Kass

Abortion is a question of choice.

Robert Casey

I have not heard that even the New York abortion has done very much in the States where it has been enacted.

Frederick Pollock

The Roman Catholic church... carries the immense power of very directly affecting women's lives everywhere by its stand against birth control and abortion.

Robin Morgan

One of the biggest issues that we face is that we have people who have their own particular concerns, whether it's on abortion, birth control, divorce and remarriage, civil rights or social justice.

William P. Leahy

A vast abortion industry, generating some half a billion dollars annually, sprang into existence in the wake of Roe and Doe.

Robert Casey

I am convinced that this approach, a mainstream Democratic approach, commands the strong support of the American people, and presents a sharp and compassionate contrast to the Republican abortion position which offers no real hope or commitment to mother or child.

Robert Casey

I come to urge my party to be open to debate and discussion; to move away from a lock-step litmus test which advocates abortion on demand in an effort to reach a broader national consensus.

Robert Casey

The national Democratic Party has embraced abortion on demand. I believe this position is wrong in principle and out of the mainstream of our party's historic commitment to protecting the powerless.

Robert Casey

A 1990 Gallup poll found that 77 percent of Americans polled said abortion was the taking of human life. I agree, and believe that taking the life on an innocent child is unjust.

Robert Casey

Abortion is the ultimate violence.

Robert Casey

Abortion on demand has, in my judgment, contributed significantly to an environment in our country in which life has become very cheap.

Robert Casey

Indeed, an entire generation of Americans has grown to adulthood since the Roe decision of 1973, which held that the right to choose an abortion was a privacy right protected by our Constitution.

Robert Casey

If our country is to reach a workable solution to the abortion issue, the Democratic party must be open to and tolerant of opposing views.

Robert Casey

In this generation, the issue pressing that question on our consciences is the issue of abortion.

Robert Casey

For almost twenty years, abortion policy in America has been controlled by the courts.

Robert Casey

Abortion on demand, throughout the full nine months of a pregnancy, for virtually any reason, became public policy in the United States of America. No other developed democracy had, or has, such a permissive abortion regime.

Robert Casey

Advocates of unrestricted abortion do not want the public to focus on these undeniable facts of fetal development, but the facts cannot be ignored.

Robert Casey

Abortion is defended today as a means of ensuring the equality and independence of women, and as a solution to the problems of single parenting, child abuse, and the feminization of poverty.

Robert Casey

We have had virtually unlimited access to abortion for nearly twenty years. Yet during that same period, more and more women and children have slipped into poverty.

Robert Casey

The abortion license has not brought freedom and security to women. Rather, it has ushered in a new era of irresponsibility toward women and children, one that now begins before birth.

Robert Casey

The advocates of abortion on demand falsely assume two things: that women must suffer if the lives of unborn children are legally protected; and that women can only attain equality by having the legal option of destroying their innocent offspring in the womb.

Robert Casey

To establish justice and to promote the general welfare, America does not need the abortion license.

Robert Casey

The abortion issue has intersected with my public life from the very beginning.

Robert Casey

I am fairly certain that my abortion position hurt me, because in a Democratic primary, where turnout is relatively low, liberal voters turn out in disproportionately large numbers and thus exercise a disproportionate influence on the outcome.

Robert Casey

However, we might oppose it, abortion is a sad feature of modern life.

Robert Casey

Dread not infanticide; the crime is imaginary: we are always mistress of what we carry in our womb, and we do no more harm in destroying this kind of matter than in evacuating another, by medicines, when we feel the need.

Marquis De Sade

The preservation of life seems to be rather a slogan than a genuine goal of the anti-abortion forces; what they want is control. Control over behavior: power over women. Women in the anti-choice movement want to share in male power over women, and do so by denying their own womanhood, their own rights and responsibilities.

Ursula K. LeGuin

The greatest destroyer of peace is abortion because if a mother can kill her own child, what is left for me to kill you and you to kill me? There is nothing between.

Mother Theresa

The cemetery of the victims of human cruelty in our century is extended to include yet another vast cemetery, that of the unborn.

Pope John Paul II

A father's interest in having a child--perhaps his only child--may be unmatched by any other interest in his life. It is truly surprising that the state must assign a greater value to a mother's decision to cut off a potential human life by abortion than to a father's decision to let it mature into a live child.

William H. Rehnquist

Reproductive choice has to be straightened out. There will never be a woman of means without choice anymore. That just seems to me so obvious. The states that changed their abortion laws before Roe are not going to change back. So we have a policy that only affects poor women, and it can never be otherwise.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg

It's all about the fungibility and money. If Planned Parenthood accesses hundreds of millions of dollars of taxpayer money and they use that for other purposes, then they can use other dollars to fund abortion.

Eric Cantor

Too many people use abortion as a form of birth control. And that's very wrong. I could never, ever have an abortion.

Brooke Shields

I do not believe in abortion at will. I do not believe that if a woman just wants to have an abortion she should... I do believe if you have an abortion you are committing murder.

Nancy Reagan

The one regret I have about my own abortions is that they cost money that might otherwise have been spent on something more pleasurable, like taking the kids to movies and theme parks.

Barbara Ehrenreich

Taxes are like abortion, and not just because both are grotesque procedures supported by Democrats. You're for them or against them. Taxes go up or down; government raises taxes or lowers them. But Democrats will not let the words "abortion" or "tax hikes" pass their lips.

Ann Coulter

Since Pussy never had thought, nor would she think, that women shouldn't have abortions, she had to come to terms with the realization that to be human, and woman, includes the possibility and even the act of murder.

Kathy Acker

But I've been very clear in this campaign - I don't believe the party should have a position on abortion.

Stephen Harper

My own views on abortion, I'm not on either pole of that and neither of the interest groups on either end of this issue would probably be comfortable with my views.

Stephen Harper

I extend that to the abortion issue, I extend that to the so-called gay rights issue, I think this is a freedom principle and consistent with the analysis in the economic area as well.

William Weld

I frankly don't care if you agree with my stand on abortion. I take that stand because no other stand is consistent with decent principles, and no other standard is consistent with the will of God.

Alan Keyes

All I'm asking for is the law that's been on the books for the last 33 years, no public funding for abortion. We are both saying the same thing, pro-life, pro-choice. Let's find the language that works for both of us so we can pass health care.

Bart Stupak

We believe the Senate language provides for federal subsidies for abortions. Plus there's a language in there where you have to pay one dollar per month, every enrollee, to pay for a fund for reproductive rights which include abortion. And that's totally against federal law. So we are saying take that out.

Bart Stupak

Earlier feminists were almost universally pro-choice and have dominated political debate until now. Having access to abortion was viewed as the only way women could have full equality with men, who, until recently, couldn't get pregnant.

Kathleen Parker

Abortion and racism are both symptoms of a fundamental human error. The error is thinking that when someone stands in the way of our wants, we can justify getting that person out of our lives. Abortion and racism stem from the same poisonous root, selfishness.

Alveda King

Abortion and racism are evil twins, born of the same lie. Where racism now hides its face in public, abortion is accomplishing the goals of which racism only once dreamed. Together, abortionists are destroying humanity at large and the black community in particular.

Alveda King

A majority, perhaps as many as 75 percent, of abortion clinics are in areas with high minority populations. Abortion apologists will say this is because they want to serve the poor. You don't serve the poor, however, by taking their money to terminate their children.

Alveda King

Abortion is inherently different from other medical procedures because no other procedure involves the purposeful termination of a potential life.

Potter Stewart

The emphasis must be not on the right to abortion but on the right to privacy and reproductive control.

Ruth Bader Ginsberg

The issue is not abortion. The issue is whether women can make up their own mind instead of some right-wing pastor, some right-wing politician telling them what to do.

Howard Dean

This is not about abortion or the antics. This is about pro choice versus anti-choice and government intervention in a woman's personal decisions about her life.

Kathleen Turner

No woman has an abortion for fun.

Elizabeth Joan Smith

The FDA is redefining birth control as abortion. The FDA is setting the bar higher for this kind of drug.

Patty Murray

We are not voting for health care if we do not resolve this language on public funding for abortion - no public funding for abortion.

Bart Stupak

Legal abortion will never rest easy on this nation's conscience.

Robert Casey

We're always going to argue about abortion. It's a hard choice and it's controversial, and that's why I'm pro-choice, because I want people to make their own choices.

Hillary Clinton

I, for one, respect those who believe with all their hearts and conscience that there are no circumstances under which any abortion should ever be available.

Hillary Clinton

Abortion is clearly wrong.

Jordan Peterson

Abortion isn't a lesser evil, it's a crime. Taking one life to save another, that's what the Mafia does. It's a crime. It's an absolute evil.

Pope Francis

Remember that before 'Roe v. Wade' was decided, there were four states that allowed abortion in the first trimester if that's what the woman sought: New York, Hawaii, California, Alaska. Other states were shifting. And people were fighting over this issue in state legislatures.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg

We will never see a day when women of means are not able to get a safe abortion in this country.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Some forms of motor neuron disease are genetically linked, but I have no indication that my kind is. No other member of my family has had it. But I would be in favour of abortion if there was a high risk.

Stephen Hawking

If you think aficionados of a living Constitution want to bring you flexibility, think again. You think the death penalty is a good idea? Persuade your fellow citizens to adopt it. You want a right to abortion? Persuade your fellow citizens and enact it. That's flexibility.

Antonin Scalia

If your neighbor has a completely different view on abortion, gay marriage, stem cell research, all of those things, you still are both Americans. Neither one of you is necessarily more patriotic than the other. Neither loves their country any more than the other one does.

Phil McGraw

Not all moral issues have the same moral weight as abortion and euthanasia. There may be legitimate diversity of opinion even among Catholics about waging war and applying the death penalty, but not... with regard to abortion and euthanasia.

Pope Benedict XVI

I want to know how these very people who are against war because of loss of life can possibly be the same people who are for abortion? They are the same people who are for animal rights, but they are not for the rights of the unborn.

Jim Gibbons

I don't believe an Alliance government should sponsor legislation on abortion or a referendum on abortion.

Stephen Harper

I do not support abortion rights. Although what I would support in this vexed area is not clear to me.

Stanley Fish

While the political debate over abortion will continue for a very long time, the federal government can and should be doing more to support programs and services that provide women with better options.

Tim Ryan

Ban partial-birth abortion except to save mother's life.

Jerry Weller

I think abortion is murder.

Victoria Jackson

The papers reveal that in several key abortion cases, justices were keenly interested in the perceived public reaction to their rulings - indicating that courts can be influenced by public sentiment.

Lee Greenwood

In addition the bill would expand an existing law "conscience clause" that protects physician training programs that refuse to provide training for abortion procedures.

Ken Calvert

The Child Custody Protection Act makes it a federal crime to transport a minor across state lines for the purpose of obtaining an abortion.

Ken Calvert

I'm against abortion.

Charles Evers

Contraceptives have a proven track record of enhancing the health of women and children, preventing unintended pregnancy, and reducing the need for abortion.

Louise Slaughter

If they are opposed to abortion, they should be for preventing unintended pregnancies.

Louise Slaughter

That is why I fought against abortion and that is why if I were still in the Senate I would be doing everything I could to defend the sanctity of marriage.

Jesse Helms

The abortion controversy is important for what it says about our stance toward procreation and children altogether.
