Gloucester Daily Times Debate on Abortion (71), November 4, 1986

Yes Means Hope

Why do I care to vote yes on Question No. 1?

As Ella Grasso, the late governor of Connecticut stated so eloquently, “Let us not kill the children of the poor, and tell them how we have helped them.”

With a yes on No. 1, together we can end the use of our tax dollars to pay for 8,500 abortions each year, and deliver a message of hope, not despair to those among us most in need of our care.
