World Socialist Worker, October 24th, 2003

“The partial-birth abortion strategy was designed to: a) emphasize the horror of partial-birth abortion to the general public by, b) introducing legislation to outlaw it, thus c) exposing pro abortion legislators who would oppose the legislation for the brutes that they are, causing them to be unseated. This was a sure win (so we were told), and once partial-birth abortion was outlawed, then we could move on to outlawing other forms of abortion.”

—Matt Trewhella, Life Advocate, January/February 1998

As quoted from the World Socialist Order web site in an article entitled, “The Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act of 2003: Republicans drum up support from religious right” by Tom Carter.
