Speaking at an Illinois Right to Life and Birthright Benefit in Chicago on November 2, 1974. Dr. Margaret White, British magistrate and physician said:
You know, I often wish we still used the old-fashioned language for pregnant women. When my mother became pregnant, they said, “She is with child.” If we use that way of speaking a bit more often, people might realize what they ‘re doing when they are destroying that child.
(Quoted by Father John Powell, S.J., in his book, Abortion: the Silent Holocaust).
