I am surprised the quote from President Nixon, released earlier this week, has not gotten more attention than it is.
Speaking to Charles Colson after the January 1973 Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion, the president said: "I admit, there are times when abortions are necessary, I know that." He gave "a black and a white" as an example.
"Or rape," Colson offered. "Or rape," Nixon agreed.
I find this particularlly offensive. Basically, Nixon is arguing that it would have necessary to abort someone that was bi-racial, such as president Obama?
Anyone not see a problem here?
