NARAL president refers to unborn as “developing life”

By Sarah Terzo

Former NARAL President Kate Michelman

Kate Michelman, once President of NARAL, one of the biggest pro-abortion groups in the country, had an abortion early in her life. She says:

“When I did squarely confront abortion as a possibility, it was a very difficult decision…I had to weigh the responsibility I felt for the developing life within me against the moral, maternal, and practical responsibilities of my daughters’ wellbeing. Religious beliefs mingled with the only complete point of clarity in my thinking: It would be impossible to have another child. While the decision was difficult, in the end, the choice was clear.”

She calls the baby she aborted “the developing life.” This was written long after the actual abortion, showing that she knew that abortion kills babies while she was president of the pro-abortion group.
