One pro-choice activist wrote:

“There is nothing moral about giving birth to children we cannot feed and care for … It is precisely because women take lives sacredly – our own as well as our children’s – that some of us choose not to bring into the world those we cannot take care of.”

Quoted in:

Rosalind Pollack Petchesky,  Abortion and Women’s Choice: The State, Sexuality, and Reproductive Freedom (New York: Longman, 1984) p.376.
