Nixon Nixing Nixon

"I know there are times when abortions are necessary. I know that - when you have a black and a white, or a rape. I just say that matter-of-factly. You know what I mean? There are times. Abortions encourage permissiveness. A girl gets knocked up, she doesn't have to worry about the pill anymore, she goes down to the doctor, wants to get an abortion for five dollars or whatever."

Taped response of President Nixon on Roe v. Wade (1973).
