The Pro-Life Movement Mourns the Loss of a Heroine

George Grant has written a beautiful tribute to his friend, Dr. Mildred Jefferson. who now resides in the presence of the Lord.

As well as being the first black woman to graduate from Harvard Medical School Dr. Jefferson was a stalwart pro-life advocate. Her credo was unequivocal, "I am at once a physician, a citizen, and a woman, and I am not willing to stand aside and allow this concept of expendable human lives to turn this great land of ours into just another exclusive reservation where only the perfect, the privileged, and the planned have the right to live."

That is a loss. She sounded like an amazing woman.
