The Right to Life Leader of the Indian independence movement, Mahatma Gandhi, once said, “It seems to me as clear as daylight that abortion would be a crime” (Gandhi, Mahatma).

Wade ruling is itself unconstitutional; finally, abortion has medical, psychological and spiritual effects on others beyond the child being deprived of life.
