Famous quotes containing the words abortion and/or birth:

    It is always the moralists who do the most harm. Abortion is the logical outcome of civilization, only the jungle gives birth and moulders away as nature decrees. Man plans.
    Max Frisch (1911–1991)

    Man’s main task in life is to give birth to himself, to become what he potentially is. The most important product of his effort is his own personality.
    Erich Fromm (1900–1980)
