From a Jan 6., 1992 letter to Betsey Wright, on Clinton's transition team:And an undated letter to Clinton,
Sarah and I have been discussing the notion of our setting up a non-profit corporation to license and distribute R U 486. Being non-profit would eliminate the need for products liability insurance, which is a major hang-up for a company thinking about marketing a new drug.
It's possible that such an endeavor could be the vehicle for a number of birth control efforts.
Something's got to be done very quickly. 26 million food stamp recipients is more than the economy can stand.
But you can start immediately to eliminate the barely educated, unhealthy and poor segment of our country. No, I'm not advocating some sort of mass extinction of these unfortunate people. Crime, drugs and disease are already doing that. The problem is that their numbers are not only replaced but increased by the birth of millions of babies to people who can't afford to have babies.It's hard to be pro-choice with people like this on your side.
There, I've said it. It's what we all know is true, but we only whisper it, because as liberals who believe in individual rights, we view any program which might the disadvantaged differently as discriminatory, mean-spirited and . . . well . . . so Republican.
