Richard Nixon shares his thoughts on abortion:

“There are times when an abortion is necessary. I know that. When you have a black and a white,” he told an aide, before adding: “Or a rape.”

H/T to Michael Mathias.

    What struck me isn’t the quote from Nixon but the title of the blog post by Mathias. Nixon was obviously a bigot but to be happy he’s dead and hope he’s in hell is just extreme. President Carter seems to have issues with Jewish people (if I remember correctly) but I won’t be happy when he’s dead and hope he’s in hell.

      Anon, I don’t disagree with your point regarding what Michael said, but he’s certainly entitled to his opinion. Ultimately, I’m focused more on what Nixon said, because it’s downright despicable.

      • Anon says:

        Of course he’s entitled to his opinion but he did write “Surely we can all agree…” and I had to give my opinion that I do not agree.

        Nixon’s generation was like that. I would be more critical if someone said something like that now because I think we have lived and learned as a society such ignorance is unacceptable.
