When Life Begins Not ‘Really Relevant’
National Review 28 February 2014
The president of the country’s largest abortion provider said she didn’t think the matter of when life begins is pertinent to the issue.
“It is not something that I feel is really part of this conversation,” Cecile Richards of Planned Parenthood told Fusion’s Jorge Ramos on Thursday. “I don’t know if it’s really relevant to the conversation.”
When pressed, Richards said that in her view life began for her three children when she delivered them.
She explained that the purpose of her organization is not to answer a question that “will be debated through the centuries,” but to provide options for pregnant women.
