From an interview with then abortion clinic owner Patricia Baird-Windle:
Q: You owned and operated a clinic that performed abortions for more than 20 years. Yet in the early ’80s you said, “I’m not pro-abortion. I know no one who is pro- abortion.” That seems to be a contradictory statement.
BAIRD-WlNDLE: I no longer feel that way. I am now pro-abortion. I’ve come a long, long way….
I now consider abortion to be a major blessing, and to be a sacrament in the hands of women….
At the very crucible of the sacrament of abortion work is the sentence in a letter written to me by a woman when I retired, and that is some women have an abortion out of love for the baby.
